NOMINATIONS are invited for the Institute of Directors (IoD), North West Director of the Year Awards 2009.

The awards give business leaders across the North West the chance to show that there have been many high achievers in the past 12 months, by nominating contacts, colleagues or themselves.

Now in it’s sixth year, the Director of the Year Awards are designed to highlight the successes of those who have defied the odds in tough market conditions, and prove that there are many “bucking the trend”.

Regional director for the IoD in the North West, Darrell Matthews, said: “It has been an incredibly tough year for the North West economy, but despite the gloom, there are still some rays of light and plenty of hope for the future of enterprise in this region.”

The awards ceremony will take place at the Manchester Hilton on October 7.
