Our Chairman Mr John Rix receives Lifetime achievement award

As a family company with more than a century-long connection to East Yorkshire we have always been champions of our local community, whether that’s creating local employment, supporting local charities, or doing what we do best, serving our customers. We believe that prosperity lies in supporting the community which we are part of, and which has supported us throughout the years. It is a mutual relationship.

John Rix receives lifetime achievement awardThat is why we are particularly proud to announce that our chairman, Mr John Rix, has been presented with a lifetime achievement award at the Bridlington Chamber and Yorkshire Coast Business Awards for his contribution to the East Yorkshire business community.

Such was the popularity of the decision; he received a standing ovation from the crowd that attended the ceremony at the Spa Royal Hall in Bridlington earlier this month.

Mr Rix is the 4th generation of our family business and has worked within the J.R.Rix & Sons group since he was 16 years old. 

It is a matter of great pride for the company and everyone who works for it that Mr Rix has been given this award. His leadership and that of the other members of the Rix family have given the business its core value of community spirit and that filters down through the business making it a very special place to work. We hope that you, our customers, share that sense.

From everyone here at Rix Sea Shuttle, we would like to offer our sincere congratulations to our chairman for such a fantastic and  well deserved achievement.
