We know that we have some of the best talent that the industry has to offer here at Paragon ID and as if to prove that very point, we are pleased to announce that Haydn Ward has been recognised in the ’30 under 30’ making him one of the stand out young employees from across the Hull and Humber region.
The innovative awards, launched only last year, recognise the achievements and talents of the leaders of tomorrow across a range of sectors. Submitting Haydn as a candidate for the shortlist, his hard work and results over the past twelve months didn’t go unnoticed by the panel of independent judges.
Joining Paragon ID in 2016, as part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme with the University of Hull, Haydn is a masters educated chemistry graduate. He was able to put his theory into practice and to apply his expertise in the workplace. In addition, he has supported the business as we continue to evolve and to become a centre of excellence for magnetic ticketing, RFID and smart applications as our customers transition from paper to contactless.
Haydn’s appointment coincided with the launch of a whole new division within Paragon ID, as we recognised that his skills could contribute towards a new function within the business that would create additional sales channels.
Just two years on from his appointment, we have seen a sizable return on our investment in this new division and Haydn has become a valued and respected member of our team.
Now Project Manager, Haydn is constantly working on developing new products that place Paragon ID as one of the leading manufacturers in the region and certainly the most advanced in terms of magnetic tickets.
It’s no surprise to see Haydn’s work being recognised and we would like to congratulate him on the progress he has made and the contribution he continues to make to Paragon ID. His achievements will be showcased during an awards ceremony on the 20 April at KCOM.
