The winners of the 2017 Jersey Director of the Year Awards, organised by IoD Jersey and supported by long-term Gold Sponsor Appleby and Silver Sponsor HSBC, were selected by an independent judging panel and announced in front of an audience of 300 senior business representatives and politicians at the Awards dinner on Friday 28th April at the Hotel de France. Video sponsor for the Awards was Orchid.

The event was once again hosted by guest speaker, renowned writer, broadcaster, former MP and Government Whip Gyles Brandreth. The judging panel for the Awards was chaired by Colin Macleod, CEO CI Co-operative Society, and a past winner in the awards. He was joined by Lesley Harrison, Chairman, Prison! Me! No Way!!!; Alex Morel, Managing Director, ALX Training; and Mark Pesco, CEO, First Names Group.

A total of 15 different senior professionals and directors had initially been shortlisted across all categories for the Awards, which are designed to celebrate the achievements of individuals and recognise excellence in the business community.

Michael Cushing, Jersey Managing Partner, Appleby, said: “Appleby has been a supporter of these awards since their inception in 2010 and over the years we have seen some really outstanding individuals who have shown extraordinary commitment, creativity and leadership win these awards. Once again the awards this year have shown that we have some exceptionally strong leaders across our private, public and voluntary sectors, and we should be proud of that.”

Chris Clark, Chair, IoD Jersey, added: “In the current uncertain and often volatile climate, having strong, able leaders at the helm of an organisation is absolutely vital, so it was particularly pleasing to see such a broad cross-section of individuals represented at our Awards this year, both as winners and shortlisted nominees. Their experience and expertise will help stand Jersey in good stead. I would of course like to thank our generous sponsors Appleby, HSBC and Orchid too for helping to make this event such a success yet again.”
