Ramsac’s managing director Robert May has made the final two for the South East Director of the Year award by the Institute of Directors (IoD).
May, 38, is in the running for the IoD Young Director of the Year award, in the category for firms with a turnover of under £5m, the second time he has made the shortlist in two years. He beat almost 300 hopefuls to the final.
Judge Alistair Rose who is south east regional chairman of PricewaterhouseCoopers, said: “We have some fantastic talent in this region and the standard of nominations this year is testament to that. Directors are under increasing pressure to be innovative and make the right business decisions, especially in a challenging marketplace.
May said: “I’m absolutely delighted. Ramsac wins quite a few awards for technical ability, but it gives me so much pleasure to be recognised for business success and aptitude.”
