We’re delighted that our Chairman, Mohan Mansigani, has been recognised for his work and achievements in the Birthday Honours List, and is to be made an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE).
Mohan became a St John Trustee in 2016, and has been able to use his extensive experience in business and finance to drive forward the well-known national healthcare charity. His efforts ultimately placed the organisation in the strongest of positions to be able to focus on responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Overnight, the charity’s event first aid and training operations ceased, but Mohan’s expertise enabled St John to continue to operate while deploying its largest ever peacetime operation in support of the NHS. Mohan’s skills and ability to secure funds and resources at the highest levels has in particular ensured that the charity’s volunteer team has been able to embark on the national vaccination programme, which has been rolling out since January this year.
Speaking of his inclusion in the Birthday Honours List, Mohan said: ‘It is a real honour to have been recognised with this award. However, in my mind this is all about the St John volunteers, who are the backbone of the organisation. It has been a privilege to be able to play a part in facilitating their work and in particular in enabling them to drive forward the national vaccination programme. I’m immensely proud to be associated with St John and of everything the volunteer and staff team are doing to respond to the pandemic.’
The whole gang at Bob & Berts wishes to send our congratulations to Mohan, for this incredible honour of an OBE which is well-deserved!
