Drpgroup Managing Director Dale Parameter has been named Director of the Year in the small and medium enterprise category, at the annual West Midlands Institute of Directors Awards.
At the awards, held at Edgbaston on 5 June, judges said they had distinguished Parmenter’s leadership of the drpgroup throughout what proved to be the most successful year in the company’s history.
The IoD Awards assesses candidates based on key factors related to business success. Growth, turnover, employee retention and strategy are all taken into account with the drpgroup’s addition of 27 new team members, 57 per cent growth and 13 new client wins all scoring highly.
Successful directors are also measured by dedication to their team with the group’s health and wellbeing initiatives and dedication to CSR, all notable factors in Parmenter’s success. Judges were also impressed with the group’s continuing drive to diversify and stay at the forefront of the industry with the acquisition of Grosvenor TV and the launch of the new drpexhibition division singled out for praise.
“Although it’s a great honour to be recognised in such illustrious company and by such a renowned association as the IoD, I see this as an award rewarding the hard work and dedication displayed by each drpteam member throughout the past few years which has driven us to where we are today.”
As a result of this award, Parmenter is automatically entered into the IoD’s National Award scheme which will name the UK’s best directors in October this year. Entrants will be drawn from each of the IoD regions.
