The annual hunt for the shining lights of the region’s business community has started with the official launch of the North East Business Executive Awards 2019 – one of the biggest contests in the North East business calendar.
Strong business leaders form the backbone of the North East’s economy. Drive, dynamism, integrity and leadership – these are just some of the qualities the judges will be looking for in the 36th year of the Awards.
Last year the main prize was won by Mark Thompson, managing partner for Ryder Architecture. Prizes were also won by Mohammed Ishaq of The Punjab Kitchen Ltd, Sharon Lane of Tees Components and Jordan McCabe of Aztec Diamond Equestrian, with Irene Lucas taking home the Lifetime Achievement Award and Farooq Hakim the prize for Non-Executive Director of the Year 2018.
The range of categories at this high-profile awards ceremony have been carefully considered to allow us to fully reflect the activities of Business Executives from across the region whilst also rewarding and encouraging rising stars.
