Directors win top awards

June 10, 2011

Two Bristol directors won accolades last night at the IoD South West Director of the Year Awards.

Neil Douglas, managing director of control systems specialist Viper Subsea, collected the director of the year award while St Peter's Hospice chief executive Sandie Foxall-Smith was named public sector director of the year. 

IoD South West director Simon Face described them as "exceptional leaders who headed an awards shortlist which was remarkable for its high quality".

He added: "Individuals such as all those on the shortlist are among personalities who will help guide the region and the UK as a whole away from these challenging recessionary times."

Some 200 guests attended the ceremony at Bristol's Marriott Royal Hotel, including IoD director general Miles Templeman. The guest speaker was Will King, head of the King of Shaves brand. 

The South West Region of the IoD is one of the most active in the UK with some 3,000 members spread across six branches covering Bath & Wiltshire, Bristol, Devon & Cornwall, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Somerset.
