Nominations open for Northern Finance Director Awards 2024

Nominations have opened for the Northern Finance Director Awards, to be held in Leeds in October.

A panel of judges from Page Group, Translink Corporate Finance, BHP, Barclays and Hill Dickinson will be collating the nominations over the coming weeks.

Those selected from the nominations will then be interviewed by the panel throughout July and shortlists announced shortly after on, before a gala awards dinner at Aspire in Leeds on October 10.

Chairman of the judging panel and this year’s host of the awards is John Halton, partner from Page Executive search.

He said: “The Northern FD Awards is one of my favourite parts of the year. We get to meet many talented, driven FDs and CFOs 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, law firm Hill Dickinson, said: “To be involved for the first time in judging and sponsoring these awards gives 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 and Translink Corporate Finance. BHP Audit partner Chris Neale said: “This is a great 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.”
