Managing director of AB Glass scoops veteran award
Alan Brayley, managing director of AB Glass, a leading aluminium manufacturing and installation company, has been announced winner of the Business Leader of the Year award at the Welsh Veteran Awards.
The awards ceremony, which took place at the Village Hotel and Leisure Club in Swansea, recognised veterans in business, fitness, sport and the wider community in Wales. The annual event celebrates the achievements and success of Armed Forces veterans that have made the transition from the military to civilian life.
Brayley served in the Royal Regiment of Wales and Royal Welsh for 20 years, finishing his military career as a Sergeant Major. Since leaving the Forces, he has run a highly successful aluminium manufacturing and installation company in Swansea. The company has employed many ex-Service personnel since its conception. AB Glass provides bespoke aluminium windows, doors, curtain walling, facades, and related products and services to the commercial and domestic markets. The multi-award-winning company employs 60 members of staff and has been in business for nearly 30 years.
The Welsh Veteran Awards are run in association with ABF The Soldiers’ Charity – the national charity of the British Army, now in its 75th year – which provides financial and practical support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families.
Says Alan: ‘I’m overwhelmed to have been named Business Leader of the Year at the Welsh Veteran Awards. This award just shows how successful you can be when you have had a background in the Forces. I truly believe that my time in the Army, and the skills and experience I developed in the Forces, has made a significant contribution to my success in business. I’d like to congratulate all of the winners and nominees at the Welsh Veteran Awards. The support this community has provided to veterans in Wales and ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is really inspiring and deserves to receive such esteemed recognition.’
