Kirsty Davies Chinnock, the Managing Director of Professional Polishing Services, has been named as an IoD West Midlands Director of the Year.
The Champagne Breakfast Award ceremony was held in the stunning Edgbaston Stadium and attracted over one hundred and sixty leading business names to this prestigious event.
The judging panel were impressed with Kirsty’s passion for the future and her conviction that UK manufacturing and SME’s as a whole are essential to growth within the UK. Kirsty said “I have always believed that manufacturing has an important part to play within the UK and have actively promoted this over the years.” The judges termed her an ‘Ambassador for Manufacturing’ and Kirsty further stressed her support for this sector “I believe a pro-manufacturing strategy needs to be created in line with further encouragement of SME’s. SME’s have a unique perspective when it comes to being a successful business; well-managed, they are the life blood of the UK.”
For Kirsty, SME’s need to be led in such a way that values the contribution of all employees: “On a personal level I want to show that there are many managing directors working for the benefit of the company – and the employees –rather than themselves. We take our responsibility as an employer incredibly seriously and do everything we can to create sustainable employment.”
Kirsty won the West Midlands Family Business Director of the Year Award and goes forward to the National Competition in London in October 2012.
