The Institute of Directors Director of the Year Awards celebrates the very best in UK business. They are a public recognition of the key role that directors play, not only in the UK’s economy but also in job preservation and creation. They place emphasis on individual excellence and achievement.
“I'm absolutely honoured to have been named the IoD East Director of the year today! It's been a tough year trying to crack the USA and international markets but the harder we work the easier it seems to get. From being a bar owner to leading Europe's 46th fastest growing tech company has been a real challenge. Thanks again to the Institute of Directors for recognising these challenges we've faced and overcome this past year. You have motivated us even more!" Jacyn Heavens, Epos Now CEO
