As we approach a new decade in business, IoD North West & Isle of Man is looking for the region’s top business leaders to step forward for the Director of the Year Awards 2020.
Taking place in Manchester next year on 14 May, the prestigious awards which is in partnership with Kuits Solicitors will celebrate the incredible achievements of the North West & Isle of Man’s men and women who are achieving great things in the region, as well as on the national and international stage.
With categories including Director of the Year – Young, Director of the Year – Family which is sponsored this year by Crowe and Director of the Year – Non-Executive which is sponsored by RSM, the awards recognise the successes of the diverse commercial landscape which is driving our local economy and beyond.
Applications open on the 21 October and are easier than ever to submit online here on the awards webpage until 17 January.
Claire Ebrey Regional Director for the North West and Isle of Man said: “Whether you are the leader of a start-up or the director of an established global corporation, the IoD awards are a great way to shout up about your successes over the past 12 months. With businesses entering from sectors including tech, banking, healthcare, hospitality, construction and more they really do shine a light on those directors who are making a difference.”
Last year, the awards celebrated the diverse achievements of entrepreneurial and inspiring business leaders from across the North West such as Stockport-based Donald Moore of employee-owned Rowlinson Knitwear who scooped both the Corporate Social Responsibility and Small-Medium Business Director of the Year awards as well as James Timpson OBE of Wythenshawe-based Timpson Group, who was awarded with the Family Business Director of the Year Award.
