Countdown is on for Director of the Year Awards

The countdown is on for the IoD’s Director of the Year Awards, the annual search for the most talented business leaders in the East Midlands.

The year’s top directors from business, public and third sectors will be recognised across 13 categories and will then go forward to contest the national Director of the Year Awards along with winners from other IoD regions.

Just last year, Guy Schanschieff, Managing Director of Northampton based Bambino Mio, the global reusable nappy brand, won the International category and went on to triumph in the same category at the national finals.

Jake Third, Client Services Director of Hallam Internet, Nottingham, was joint winner of the Young Director category in 2019 and was Highly Commended for Young Director in the national finals.  

The 13 categories are: 
Family Business
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Non-Executive Director 
Social Value and Sustainability 
Young Director 
Public Sector 
Third Sector 
Small-Medium Business (below £50m turnover) 
Large Business (£50m + turnover) 
Chair’s Award for Excellence in Director and Board Practice.

You can nominate a fellow director for any of the categories or enter yourself. Deadline for entries is Friday 3 April.

The winners will be announced at a special lunch on 18 June at Winstanley House, Leicester.
