Rory Clarke, Managing Director, JR Rix & Sons said “Everyone at J R Rix & Sons Ltd is absolutely delighted and very proud that Tim Rix is to be made a CBE in the New Year’s Honours.

“Tim has been very active in the local community for many years and devotes a great deal of his energy and passion to supporting the city of Hull and the surrounding region. He is Vice Chairman of the Local Enterprise Partnership with involvement in sub-boards for investment, business development and the North Bank Partnership. He is Chair of the City of Hull Leadership Board and Chair of the Regional Growth Fund, the Green Port growth programme."

“From a business perspective, Tim is the fifth generation to come into J.R. Rix & Sons Ltd and he strives to ensure that our diverse group of companies involved in shipping, fuel distribution, manufacturing static caravans, property and selling cars, collectively employing more than 600 people, continues to thrive and evolve in an ever-changing economic environment."
