Chair of Cheshire Commonwealth Association David Maisey (along with his wife Wendy) has become the proud recipient of an O.B.E. (An Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the Queen’s New Year Honours List 2020.

The awards recognise the outstanding achievements of people across the United Kingdom, and David and Wendy have been selected for their outstanding contribution to International Trade and the British Economy with over 20 years of exporting through their company ICC Solutions Ltd.
The honours are the icing on the cake for David and Wendy, and the result of 23 years of hard work running their company in Cheshire, which develops IT based test tools for the payments industry and exports to over 100 countries. The company has previously won four Queen’s Awards for Enterprise – two for innovation and two for international trade.

David was recently appointed as a Deputy Lieutenant in Cheshire and as Chairman of the Cheshire Commonwealth Association works closely with the Department for International Trade. Both David and Wendy are keen to help others and support many charities including The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and, more locally, Warrington Youth Club. Not content with just being a contributor to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards, ICC Solutions has successfully developed an exporting skill, which helps young people achieve their DofE Award through education – and helping to inspire future British exporters.

David commented ‘I am absolutely elated and truly honoured to be the recipient of an O.B.E. This award is the pinnacle of my career so far and I feel privileged to be the co-founder of ICC Solutions and have the opportunity to make such a positive influence on the British Economy’.
