The awards, spanning 14 categories, paid tribute to the enterprise, leadership, resilience, social impact and all-round excellence of financial leaders and their teams in Northern businesses over the past 12 months.
The newly added ESG Champion award sought to celebrate those finance leaders who have demonstrated the need to conduct themselves responsibly, making a positive contribution to the environment, society and their own governance programme.
Excellence in sustainable practice and creating positive social impact sit at the heart of James Cropper’s approach to both long-term strategy and to daily decision making, as the business looks to make a positive contribution to the world we live in.
The winners were announced recently at the celebratory awards dinner at Aspire, Leeds. Over 150 guests attended, from leading Finance Directors and their teams to business professionals from across the North of England.
