Imerja are delighted to announce that Ian Jackson, Managing Director of Imerja, has been shortlisted for the Institute of Directors (IoD) UK Director of the Year Awards after picking up an award in the regional finals.
In October last year, Jackson won the IoD Yorkshire Bank Ackroyd Award which recognised outstanding contribution to corporate social responsibility. Jackson was then invited to enter the UK finals along with all other regional winners and has been shortlisted in the category of 'Director of the Year for Environmental Leadership'.
Jackson commented: "Winning the CSR award at the regional stages last year and getting through to the UK finals is a tremendous accolade to Imerja, and a testament to the investments we have made as a business to develop a positive and proactive culture.
As an IT service provider we are faced with daily challenges around ‘green’ issues and the impacts of IT on the environment; this award recognises that Imerja are identifying these issues in developing a sustainable business, both for ourselves and for our customers."
The awards ceremony will take place on 1st October at the prestigious Lancaster Hotel in London.
