EY Azerbaijan has presented the 4th Robin Bennett award for significant contributions to Azerbaijan-UK business relations at the monthly meeting of the British Business Group (BBG). The event, which is sponsored by EY Azerbaijan, was held at the Four Seasons Hotel on 6 June 2017.

Gordon Birrell, former Regional President of BP in Azerbaijan, was awarded the annual prize, a smoking pipe. Turgay Teymurov, EY Baku Partner, and John Patterson OBE, Chairman of the BBG, presented the award to Cathal Kelly, BP AGTR Vice President, who was representing Mr. Birrell at the event.

The winner of the Robin Bennett Pipe Award is selected by decision of the BBG Committee based on nominations by members.

Robin Bennett OBE (1942-2011) was one of the founders of BBG Azerbaijan. He came to Baku as EY Managing Partner and enjoyed a long and successful career with the firm.
