Chairman of the judging panel and this year’s host of the awards, John Halton, Partner from Page Executive search, said: “It’s one of my favourite parts of the year when the Northern FD Awards come round as we get to meet a great deal of talented, driven FD’s and CFO’s with great stories to tell.

“The last 12 months or so have offered very different challenges for finance leaders than previous years with the macro-economic backdrop being forever changing and businesses having to adapt at pace to stay prosperous.

“I look forward to hearing how the North’s finance leaders have no doubt once again played a pivotal role in the success of their companies.”

Glenn Hayes, Employment Partner from new sponsors Hill Dickinson, said: “We are delighted to be involved for the first time in judging and sponsoring these awards giving us the opportunity to hear from some of the best financial talent in the North and celebrate their contribution to the successes of these businesses generally.

“Whilst in challenging economic times, it’s great to see the region continues to thrive across a variety of sectors.”

Also joining the sponsors this year are BHP/Translink Corporate Finance. Audit Partner Chris Neale said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to sponsor the Northern FD Awards and recognise some of the brightest and best talent across the North.

“Our region is home to some incredible businesses and the role that our CFOs & FDs have in driving that should never be under-estimated. We’re excited to be able to support the awards and celebrate what the North has to offer.”
