October 2013

Better Bathrooms MD and Founder Colin Stevens has been named Young Director of the Year at the IoD North West award ceremony.

Colin beat three other shortlisted directors to the title; his entrepreneurial story and management style really does speak volumes on how to create and sustain a successful company. Following his win, he added:

“I am delighted to be named Young Director of the Year. It is a real honour to be shortlisted but to be rewarded with a win is like a fairy tale. I have a fantastic team at and I really want to thank everyone for following my ambitions to be the preferred bathroom retailer of choice. I hope my story and success inspires the next generation to aim high and never give up”.

Now in its 10th year, the Director of the Year awards celebrates the talent that makes the North West an inspiring place to do business. This year’s awards, which were sponsored by law firm Weightmans, featured nine categories, including the Weightman’s Award for Innovation, and overall Director of the Year.

Tony Attard, chairman of IoD North West, said:

“The Director of the Year awards are always a great event to be involved with, and this year was no exception. I’m very proud that in the last decade the awards have grown in popularity, and this year we received a record number of really high quality entries. Congratulations to all of the winners and those shortlisted, who have demonstrated this year that, despite a challenging economy, they have the drive and the commitment to push their organisations forward and really raise the bar for business in the North West.”
