Our CEO is shortlisted for business award
Scotland’s top crop of directors have been shortlisted for the Director of the Year Awards, celebrating individuals’ business achievements in 2016, and Derek has been shortlisted in the Regional Director of the Year, Fife and Central category.
A record number of nominations were received for this year’s awards, which will be held at the Crowne Plaza Glasgow on Thursday 23 March 2017. Now 41 leaders will compete for awards across nine key director categories and six regional categories.
The Awards reflect the diversity of business life in Scotland, with categories for big business, SMEs, charities and the public sector and applaud those individuals whose creativity, leadership or innovative business practices have led to success for their organisation and the communities they serve.
David Watt, Executive Director of the Institute of Directors in Scotland, commented: “With a 25% boost in the number of entries this year, it’s pleasing to see so many businesses recognising good leadership, and thriving across a diverse range of industries and sectors.
“It is hugely important for Scotland, and its economy and people, that we have effective and dynamic leadership at the very top of our businesses and organisations particularly at the moment, when strong leadership can remain a constant driver of performance amid overwhelming change inflicted by external forces.”
Derek Robertson commented: "I am flattered to have been shortlisted for this award from the Institute of Directors Scotland. It is a reflection of the great team effort of all at Keep Scotland Beautiful as we work to make Scotland clean, green and more sustainable."
