CQI's International Quality Award Winners 2019
The Awards, which are judged through a tough process and took place in the Connaught Rooms in London, are designed to recognise and celebrate excellence within the quality sector and applaud the contribution and influence of quality professionals that improve the reputation of organizations across the globe.
Importantly, 2019 is also a landmark point in the CQI’s history as it is their centenary and so the awards commemorated the development of the quality profession and its role in recent technology advances over the last 100 years.
NQA chose to support the awards because our motto of ‘Never Stop Improving’ aligns with the ethos of the awards and acknowledges the importance of global quality standards.
The 7 categories and this year’s outstanding winners are:
Emerging Talent Award – Victoria Derbyshire, Nuvia Ltd, UK
The Audit System Award – BAE Systems, UK
Quality Professional of the Year Award - Angelique Macrez, Osborne, UK
Quality Team of the Year Award – AWE, UK

The whole NQA team would like to congratulate all of the finalists who were at the awards. It was great to see such a huge pool of talent in our industry, each doing their bit to improve standards around the world.
The work that the CQI and IRCA do to support the industry is outstanding and it is a privilege to work so closely with them.
Nick Wright, NQA's Managing Director, has said:
“Having attended the International Quality Awards previously in 2018, I was again personally inspired by the journeys of excellence behind each of the finalists and winners from this year. I was honoured to have the opportunity to address the room for the opening remarks. Drawing attention to the changing nature of our industry and the need for continual development of skills and capabilities. This is in support of the changing expectations placed upon quality professionals to be able to work across a broader set of disciplines, including environment, health and safety, energy management and information security. It was fantastic to be there.”
