The University of Kent has awarded an honorary doctorate to Bestway Group’s chief executive Zameer Choudrey.
Mr Choudrey was awarded the Doctor of Civil Law degree at a recent graduation ceremony in Canterbury Cathedral in recognition of his contribution to services to public life and business.
Having graduated in accountancy from the University of Kent in 1981, Mr Choudrey joined Bestway in 1984 as financial controller and this year celebrates a decade leading the Bestway Group as its chief executive.
Mr Choudrey told Wholesale News:”To be recognised for one’s achievements in life is always extremely gratifying and I would like to thank the University of Kent for this honorary doctorate. My links with the university go way back to my student days. I chose Kent as it provided me with a great learning experience. It is fantastic to see how the University has flourished and continues to be a centre of excellence with an outstanding reputation both internationally and domestically.”
