Life Service Award 2015 – David Sayers

The NAG Life Service Recognition Award has been running for 5 years – it was created in NAG’s 40th year as a way of showing gratitude to people that have dedicated immense time and commitment to the company.

It was a pleasure to see David Sayers, NAG Honorarium, receive the award at our recent AGM. As has become customary, James Davenport, Professor of Information Technology, University of Bath, presented David with the award and said a colleague wrote of David as follows, “David has been an outstanding ambassador for NAG for over forty years. For many customers, he has been the face of NAG - someone that they recognise and relate to, because of his many trips outside the office in the role of sales support. His interactions with NAG collaborators have been many and varied."

A code contributor wrote “David is, I believe, the main reason many of us contributed software to the early library. He came to our meetings, he listened and encouraged us, indeed he was one of us".
