Flintshire entries sought for business awards

THE Institute of Directors (IoD) is calling for entries for its annual Wales-wide awards.

Ten gongs – including North Wales Director of the Year and North Wales Young Director of the Year – will be awarded.

IoD North Wales Director of the Year 2011 Huw Jones, managing director of Ruthin-based civil engineering firm Jones Bros, said: “The Institute of Directors is a significant body, supporting and championing the needs of business leaders throughout Wales.

“I was honoured to receive the award last year, and there were business benefits. It’s well worth entering.”

Anyone can nominate associates or colleagues – or even themselves – for consideration.

IoD North Wales chairman Helen Watson, of Aaron & Partners Solicitors in Chester, said: “These awards are a positive way of recognising and rewarding business leaders for the important work they do to boost the North Wales economy.

“I urge directors across the whole business spectrum to take part.”

Winners from the regional awards are automatically put through to the IoD national awards in London later this year.

The Wales awards are also open to non-IoD members. All entrants will be considered by a panel of six independent judges.

The winners will be announced at a celebration lunch on May 17 in Cardiff. The closing date for entries is March 31.
