Smith & Williamson has been confirmed as a category sponsor at one of the South West’s leading business awards ceremonies.

The firm is sponsoring the Mid-Market Director of the Year Award at the Institute of Directors’ (IoD) South West Director of the Year Awards 2020.

This year’s awards ceremony takes place in Bristol on Thursday, 11th June, and is being sponsored by Bristol Airport, Burges Salmon and the University of the West of England.

Nigel Hardy, partner and head of assurance and business services at Smith & Williamson in Bristol, said: “We are delighted to support these awards and in particular the Mid-Market category for businesses with £10 million to £50 million turnover."

“This award will go to the business that can show outstanding initiative, boldness and imagination in the enterprise, as well as sound management practices. These companies have successfully scaled their businesses, employ thousands of people and make such a valuable contribution to the local economy.”

The overall regional category winner is automatically entered into the UK finals of the IoD Director of the Year Awards, providing them with additional exposure and profile on a national stage as the “best of the best” in British business.

Last year Charmaine Vincent, owner and CEO of Bristol-based Baltimore Consulting, recruitment specialists in the public and third sector, was named SME Director of the Year at the national awards final.

Simon Face, regional director for the South West said: “In uncertain times leadership and strong governance have never been more important to successful directors.

“These awards celebrate and showcase the best directors in the region who have demonstrated they are able to adapt, seize opportunities and strive in an ever- changing world.”
