Thursday May 16th marked a truly unforgettable and remarkable day for SYM Superyacht Management’s MD, Ben Young as he was invited with his family to Buckingham Palace, London for a VERY special occasion hosted by The Prince of Wales.
Ben was recognized for “outstanding achievements and services to the UK and British Overseas Territories and for services to charity” and was honoured to become a “Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire” otherwise known as an MBE.
The Investiture took place in the Ballroom at Buckingham Palace during which time each of the recipients were called forwards one-by-one as HRH Prince Charles placed the decoration and congratulated each person on their honour.
This incredible award was recognition for Ben’s works leading the Cogs 4 Cancer team during his time as President of the “Fonds de Dotation” between 2014 and 2018. It was during this time that the team raised over €1 Million euros for Cancer Charities in the UK, France and Spain.
