The Guild's president, Nick Mason, and a recent winner of its President's Trophy, Gordon Murray, have received CBEs in the 2019 New Year Honours.

Nick, who has been president for the past 10 years, receives the honour in recognition of his contribution to music; being the only continuous member of rock legends Pink Floyd. Even though he will be 75 this month (being born in the same year as the Guild was founded) Nick will shortly start a North American tour with his new band Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets.

Murray, who won the Guild President's Trophy in 2016, receives his CBE in recognition of his services to motoring. After designing some of the most successful F1 cars of all time, and the seminal McLaren F1 supercar, he is still involved in the day to day design work at Gordon Murray Design.

Other notable honours include Kevin Fitzpatrick, Nissan's senior vice president for manufacturing in Europe, who has been awarded a CBE for services to manufacturing and engineering, and veteran designer Tom Karen, who was awarded an OBE for his services to design.
