Karl Hick, CEO of The Larkfleet Group of Companies, has been shortlisted for the prestigious ‘Leader of the Year’ category in the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards.
Karl said: “To be shortlisted for such a prestigious award is a privilege. I can see I am in very good company and I look forward to the event where the winner will be announced.
”From our base in the Lincolnshire market town of Bourne, I believe we are leading the way in showing how high environmental and quality standards can be introduced practically and economically to the highly competitive housing market and across all our companies. We strive to demonstrate environmental best practice and sustainability not just in the projects delivered for customers but also in our everyday business.”
The BusinessGreen Leaders Awards are among the UK's largest and most admired environmental business awards and celebrate the best and the brightest from low carbon national companies. The winner will be announced at the awards ceremony in London in July.
