Northern Ireland business leaders in running for directors' awards
Eight of Northern Ireland's top business leaders have been shortlisted for the national Institute of Directors awards in London.
The IoD UK Director of the Year Awards showcase some of the UK's top business talents, and their impact on the wider community.
Those shortlisted include Mike Mullan of Moy Park, for the 'corporate responsibility category' and Marie-Therese McGivern of Belfast Metropolitan College for the 'public sector' category.
Paul Terrington, chairman of IoD in Northern Ireland, offered his congratulations to the finalists. "Northern Ireland boasts extremely high standards of business excellence across a range of industries and I am delighted that once again the successes of so many local directors have been recognised on a national scale," he said.
"Last year saw two of our directors, Michelle Hatfield from Belfast City Airport and Jim Dobson from the Dunbia Group crowned with the UK title and I wish every one of our directors shortlisted this year the best of luck."
And a year on since Mr Dobson of Dunbia Group took his award, the firm has received another nomination with Alan McKeown, Dunbia's supply chain director.
