Business world eyes top prize

The Institute of Directors has launched its annual search for the business person of the year in Northern Ireland.

The IoD Lunn's Award of Excellence, now in its eighth year, will recognise an Ulster businessman or businesswoman whose commitment, innovation, energy and vision has brought success to their business, their employees and to the wider economy of Northern Ireland.

The winner will receive a perpetual sterling silver trophy, certificate and a Patek Philippe Calatrava wrist watch worth £7,500.

Frank Bryan, chairman of the IoD's Northern Ireland division, said: "We are delighted that these awards keep going from strength to strength and it is truly a highlight in our calendar.

"At the time IoD and Lunn's the Jewellers established the awards, there was a gap in the market. Now there are a plethora of business awards out there, but this one is unique.

"It is held in very high regard by both the business community and the public."

Nomination forms can be requested from awardofexcellence@iassmarts.com.

Previous winners have included Bro McFerran, Hugh Cormican, Ed Vernon, Peter Curistan, Jas Mooney and Owen Lamont.

The closing date for nominations is December 21.

Judging will take place in January and the winner will be announced at the IoD NI annual dinner in February.
