This year CEO Stephen Rogers of Swanstaff Recruitment was named as one of the finalists for the medium sized company Director of the Year award. The competition was fierce and the category winner was Paul Lindley from Ella’s Kitchen; however the judges also decided to award Stephen Rogers with a Highly Commended certificate revealing just how close the competition was.
Stephen Rogers said,
“To become a finalist for this category was an honour in itself but to be awarded highly commended is just fantastic. To be recognised in this way gives me a great sense of achievement, particularly as the award is judged by previous winners who know how tough running a successful business is.
I pride myself in the way that I lead and motivate my team and what we achieve together, so to be recognised for these efforts is a great privilege.
The standard of nominees for the IoD Director of the Year awards is very high and therefore to be Highly Commended is a great accolade.”
