Karl Hick, CEO of The Larkfleet Groups of Companies, has been shortlisted as a finalist at this year’s prestigious IoD East Midlands Director of the Year awards.
Karl won the award in 2015 when he was named as overall East Midlands Director of the year.
The regional winners will be announced on Friday 23 June at the Nottingham Conference Centre and these will go forward to the IoD’s national Director of the Year awards which will be made on Friday 22 September at the Lancaster London Hotel.
Karl said: “It is a great privilege to be acknowledged once again for my continued dedication to the Larkfleet brand.
"I was delighted to win the East Midlands Institute of Directors ‘Director of the Year’ title in 2015.
"Many of the things talked of in the future tense in 2015 have now come to fruition and are providing the basis for further growth and development for the business, for the team and for me personally.
"I know it is a cliché but this award – if I were to win again – would be an accolade for the whole Larkfleet team. People throughout the group have worked hard to bring us through the recession into our current situation where we are expanding across the UK and into our first overseas operations.
“It has been a great year so far with the Larkfleet Homes and Allison Homes brands both going from strength to strength in an uncertain market. Winning this award will further add to our successes.”
The IoD awards are well known as being the ‘top business awards scheme, which recognises excellence and enterprise in the boardroom’.
