Eleven business leaders were honoured at the IoD East of England Director of the Year Awards 2019.

The winners received their awards at a celebratory lunch at the Jockey Club Rooms in Newmarket.

IoD East of England regional director, Simone Robinson said:"We refer to the East of England region as the Enterprising East as it is an area recognised for business start-up and scale-up. Once again the judges were overwhelmed by the professionalism, passion and dedication of all of the IoD Director of the Year finalists.

They are all shining lights for the Enterprising East and we hope that they will continue to develop their leadership skills via the IoD's professional development courses as better directors in turn leads to a better economy."
