We are extremely pleased and proud of our Managing Director, Sara Speirs, who was Highly Commended in the ‘SME Company Director of the Year’ category of the IoD UK awards in London earlier today.
Sara’s category was the biggest at the awards with 13 magnificent finalists from all over the UK, so we are delighted that her achievements were recognised and that she received the commendation. We are also proud that she was the only female finalist at the awards ceremony from Scotland. All in all it has been a fantastic journey since winning the ‘IoD Director of the Year Award’ in Scotland back in March this year.
The annual awards ceremony took place this afternoon at a glittering awards lunch in London’s Lancaster Hotel. There were around 90 finalist across the twelve categories and Sara was only one of five who were from Scotland.
Speaking shortly after the announcement Sara said, “I was delighted to win in Scotland and pleasantly surprised to be shortlisted for the UK finals, and to be Highly Commended among such worthy finalists is very special. I’m pleased for myself, but even more so for the whole team at Spectrum, it’s their dedication and hard work that earns every award, even the ones with my name on the certificate, I am pleased for each and every one of them”.
Congratulations to all of today’s winners, however we think everyone shortlisted for these highly prestigious awards was already a winner, especially our Managing Director – well done Sara.
