Mr Smith was presented with the distinguished accolade on 21 March during the ACR News Awards ceremony at London’s Tower Hotel.
The award, given in memory of the former managing director of Bitzer UK, Alan Moor, acknowledges the contributions to industry of an individual whose efforts have largely gone unrecognised.
The annual ACR News Awards celebrates achievements across the air conditioning and refrigeration sector, recognising exceptional products, extraordinary companies and remarkable individuals.
Mr Smith said: “I am honoured to have been presented with this prestigious and worthy award, given in memory of the past managing director of Bitzer UK. This recognition is nestled within a set of extremely fine and outstanding industry awards.
“It should be highlighted that this prize could not have been presented to me without the hard work and research of BSRIA members and colleagues, who I would also like to take this opportunity to thank.”
