ICCBBA would like to congratulate our current Board Member Professor John Armitage for being awarded the honor of Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the United Kingdom’s 2019 New Year Honour List for his services to corneal transplantation.

The New Year Honours List recognizes the outstanding achievements of people across the United Kingdom and demonstrates the breadth of service given by people from all backgrounds. Of the 1,148 people who were named to this year’s list, only 238 individuals were selected at the OBE level. The list honors those who have overcome personal loss, helped rebuild communities, and whose expertise and dedication showcase the very best of the United Kingdom.

Professor Armitage has been an ICCBBA volunteer since 2010. In addition to his position on the Board of Directors, he also serves as the Chair of the international Eye Banking Technical Advisory Group and is a member of the Standards Committee.
