Mark Nominated for Prestigious Award

Our Director Mark Blackhurst has been nominated as Global Director of the Year at the 10th annual IoD North West Director of the Year awards. He has made the shortlist for the award, which celebrates top business talent in the North West and recognises the achievements of the regions most dynamic directors.

Its an honour to be in the running for Global Director of the Year, as there are so many exceptional business leaders across the North West. Our region is a hub for growth and tech innovation, providing forward-thinking businesses with the services and talent to turn their companies into global brands. Said Mark.

As director of successful Manchester-based search engine optimisation firm SEO Next, Mark helped launch Digital Next, earlier this year with co-founders, Justin Blackhurst and Vaibhav Kakkar. Digital Next aims to help companies take advantage of the opportunities available online and claim valuable real estate on emerging digital platforms.

The quality of entries this year was particularly striking and this is reflected in the final nominees, said Darrell Matthews, regional director of IoD North West. There is a great spread of talent from some of the regions leading businesses and public sector organisations. Our awards are different to many, because they celebrate the people behind fantastic businesses.

Winners will be announced at an awards dinner in Manchester on 26 September, and will automatically go forward for inclusion in the IoD National Awards held in London on 11 October.
