Daniel Walton, Managing Director, and Co-Founder of Worcester-based company OLPRO, has been shortlisted for a Business Desk Leadership Award. Specifically, The Company Leader (up to 100 employees) award.
Daniel co-founded OLPRO in 2011 when he noticed a lack of innovation and creativity within the outdoor leisure industry.
OLPRO is a strong camping brand working within E-commerce and wholesale delivering a range of unique and high-quality products that are changing the face of the outdoor industry, selling a variety of outdoor leisure products such as tents, awnings, backpacks, melamine, outdoor furniture, and camping kit essentials.
Daniel strongly believes in supporting the local community as well as the environment and has been a driving force for the company to help and contribute to local communities by donating sleeping bags to the homeless and people displaced by environmental factors such as flooding.
OLPRO remains dedicated to having a positive environmental impact by planting a tree for every tent, awning and backpack sold (9.7 thousand trees planted so far) and designing innovative tents that are made from recycled fabrics.
Daniel Walton, Founder of OLPRO, said on his shortlist: ‘’I am honoured to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award and to be recognized for leading such an amazing company through its successes over the years.
‘’I am so proud of the company that I have helped develop and it continues to amaze me every year what we can achieve through hard work and dedication. It might be an individual award but I’m standing on the shoulder of giants at OLPRO’’
Finalists for the awards will be announced on the 9th of March and we are looking forward to seeing if Daniel will be a finalist.
