The strength and expertise of Jersey’s business leaders was recognised on the national stage last week, with one Jersey director winning an award and another two being highly commended in this year’s prestigious national IoD Director of the Year Awards UK Finals.
Of the five-strong Jersey contingent being shortlisted in the Awards, Eamonn Elliott, General Manager of the Grand Jersey, was named Young Director of the Year – the second year in a row that a Jersey individual has won the award.
In addition, Jane Moy, Chief Executive Officer of Centre Point Trust, and Aaron Chatterley, Chief Executive Officer of feelunique.com, were both ‘highly commended’ in the ‘Public/Third Sector’ and ‘Large Company’ categories respectively.
The other Jersey business leaders to be shortlisted for the Awards ceremony, which was held at the Grange St Paul’s Hotel in London on Friday 11th October, were Andrew Shrimpton, Director of Dolan Hotels Limited, in the ‘SME Company’ category; and Nigel Mann, Director of The Jersey Sports & Spinal Clinic, in the Young Director of the Year category.
The IoD Director of the Year Awards UK Finals are designed to recognise and celebrate the exceptional achievements of individuals at director level within private, public and voluntary organisations across Britain. It picks individuals from the best of British business who are chosen preliminary through the IoD’s regional Director of the Year awards programme. The Jersey winners were announced at an Awards dinner in May which was hosted by Gyles Brandreth.
In 2012, Eliot Lincoln, CEO of Greenlight, won the national IoD Young Director of the Year award.
Jason Laity, IoD Jersey Branch Chairman, said:
“It is fantastic to be able to announce that Eamonn Elliott took home a national IoD award from the ceremony in London, the second consecutive year that a Jersey director has won the national Young Director of the Year category. I’m also delighted for Jane Moy and Aaron Chatterley, who have worked tirelessly for their organisations and who both thoroughly deserve their recognition at national level. Further, that all the winners of the Jersey regional awards progressed to the national shortlist, for the second year in a row, in itself is evidence of the quality of senior business professionals in Jersey.”
