South West Communications Group’s chief executive officer Tony Rowe OBE has been named among Exeter’s first Power 50 list.

The list is made up of individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the city and they were celebrated at a prestigious event at the University of Exeter’s Forum building, hosted by Radio Exe’s Paul Nero and BBC reporter and presenter Alison Johns.

There were five categories (Large and SME Businesses, Community, Sports and Creative Arts & Media) and the judging panel had to distinguish one individual at the top of each field from the Total Power 50. The winner of the SME Business category was Mr Rowe for the contribution made by South West Communications Group and Sandy Park, home to Exeter Chiefs.

The Exeter Power 50 City’s Most Influential Award went to renowned chef Michael Caines for his support of the tourism, leisure, business, education and charity sectors through his hotel, restaurant and cafe bar, his training academy with Exeter College, the Exeter Festival of South West Food and Drink and his patronage of Families for Children and international cancer charity One for the Boys.

Richard Marsh, organiser of the event said “We’re thrilled by the response to the Exeter Power 50 awards in our first year. With over 200 nominations, we had our work cut out for us but even then some people have been missed as they weren’t nominated. We’ll definitely come back bigger and even better next year.”

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
