Tim Jones, Chairman of CH&Co Group, has been named Director of the Year of a Large Company at the IoD London and the South Director of the Year Awards.
The awards, run by the Institute of Directors (IoD) and open to members and non-members, are sponsored by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and bring together company directors from a variety of backgrounds, recognising their qualities as business leaders.
Tim Jones said: “I was so surprised and honoured to win this award from the IoD. I founded the business 25 years ago with my late wife Robyn, who sadly passed away last September, and this award is as much for her as for me. Last year was incredibly challenging on a personal level and from a business perspective as we merged our company to create the CH&Co Group and I’m very grateful to our amazing team who have helped us achieve it all – this recognition is for all of them.”
Rodger Broad, Director of the IoD South, said: “Once again, the standard of leadership set by all our finalists was exceptional, so Tim’s win is a tremendous achievement.
“He goes forward to the UK IoD awards in October where he will compete for the title of UK Director of the Year.”
Tim received his award at a Gala Awards Dinner attended by nearly 200 fellow finalists and guests at the Institute of Directors in Pall Mall, London.
