The Edward Weiss Memorial Award was established to provide recognition for an individual whose endeavours over the previous twelve months have contributed in a significant way to Buckman's progress in the leather industry. The award is based on peer recognition of meritorious service and industry excellence. Beard has been singled out, not only for his achievements in the Australian and New Zealand industries, but also for his contributions in Asia and assistance around the world. Beard has been with Buckman for four years. Prior to Buckman, he worked as a general manager and senior technician of an exotic skins tannery and technician at a wet-blue tannery.
