Leading offshore law firm Appleby has announced it will sponsor the Director of the Year Awards again.
The awards, which were established last year and are organised by the Institute of Directors (IoD), were developed to highlight outstanding corporate leadership and draw attention to the contribution of significant figures who promote society and economic prosperity in the Isle of Man.
Appleby, which employs more than 70 people in the island including lawyers and other professional specialists, sponsored the inaugural awards.
Nominations are open to IoD members and non-members from the public, private and third sectors and the results will be announced at an awards ceremony taking place at The Sefton Hotel, Douglas, on 19 May.
The winner will be eligible to enter the National IoD Awards against competition from around the British Isles.
Faye Moffett, managing partner at Appleby’s Isle of Man office, said: ’Local business leaders make important contributions to Manx society every day and these awards are an important way of recognising their hard work and dedication.
’We are delighted to sponsor the awards again and continue our excellent relationship with the IoD. We believe it is crucial to celebrate, support and nurture talent in the Island business community.’
IoD Isle of Man chairman Clive Parrish said: ’It is great to see these awards going into their second year, once again highlighting the immense expertise and dedication of local directors. We’re delighted to again be working with Appleby and would like to thank the firm for its ongoing support.’
