Daniel Gidney (pictured), Chief Executive at Lancashire County Cricket Club (LCCC), has been named the Business Person of the Year at The Trafford Business Awards 2014.
Hosted at Emirates Old Trafford on 10 July, the Trafford Business Awards were launched by The Advertiser and Manchester Evening News to celebrate the achievements of companies of all sizes based in Trafford.
Gidney’s award was a judge’s choice awarded for ‘entrepreneurial spirit and demonstrating outstanding achievement that inspires others around them’.
“This may be an individual award, but in my mind I’d like to dedicate this to all of the fantastic, talented staff at Lancashire County Cricket Club, an organisation that is 150 years old,” said Gidney. “Whether it’s the head groundsman, head chef or somebody in housekeeping or guest services, all of these people are proud to wear the Red Rose.”
Paul Harrison, Editor of The Advertiser, said: “Daniel is the first Trafford Business Person of the Year and a worthy recipient. The judges felt they needed to honour someone who is leading a business from the front and Daniel certainly does that. I am sure Lancashire and Emirates Old Trafford will go from strength to strength.”
