We’re chuffed to share the news that our CEO Dean Benson has made the shortlist for two prestigious titles at the North East and Yorkshire (IoD) Director of the Year Awards 2016!
The awards celebrate directors at the forefront of leadership excellence and the official shortlist for the region was revealed yesterday, with the news that Dean Benson of Visualsoft is in the running for the ‘North East Small Company Director of the Year’ award and the ‘North East Young Director of the Year’ award.
Team VS has continued to grow year on year. We now boast four UK offices in London, Manchester, Newcastle and Teesside, over 1100 clients and 222 members of staff. In the past two years alone, we have moved into a Google-esque 30,000 square foot Headquarters in Stockton-on-Tees, expanded with a new office in Manchester, launched the in house Innovation Lab and sister company Hive.HR, introduced an innovative approach to HR which has led to increased turnover and increased client satisfaction, and in March 2015 Visualsoft was crowned Company of the Year award at the North East Business Awards.
The winners of the regional finals will be crowned at the ceremony held at Leeds Civic Hall on 30th June 2016, hosted by broadcaster Danni Hewson. They will then go forward to the national IoD Director of the Year finals held in London in October. Good luck Dean!
