Pullan and Bonneville now join a long list of illustrious EVCOM Fellows including John Simpson CBE, Baroness Martha Lane Fox, Lord Attenborough CBE, Bob Geldof KBE, Sir Trevor MacDonald, Dame Anita Roddick, Sir Bruce Forsyth, Lord Michael Grade and Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson.
"I’m a great believer in the power our industry has to engage with people in an extraordinary way and EVCOM plays a critical role in promoting this work," said Pullan. "So I’m thrilled to be awarded the EVCOM Fellowship – it’s a great honour to be recognised by this illustrious body."
Presenting Julian Pullan with his Fellowship Award, EVCOM board member Andrew Smith said: "My memories of working with Julian are filled with respect for just how visioned he is.
