Essex-based Total Car Parks [on Friday 15/06/18] backed the IoD East of England Director of the Year Awards 2018 by presenting Managing Director Will Stewart with a Start-Up award.
The car park operator, which manages more than 100 sites across the UK, sponsored the Start-Up category at the prestigious lunch-time ceremony in Newmarket, Suffolk.
Mr Stewart of The Point.1888 was presented with the Start-Up Director of the Year Award by Leigh Cunningham, Executive Assistant to the Managing Director of Total Car Parks, Essy Eslamian, whose head office is in Colchester.
Ms Cunningham said: “Mr Eslamian recognises the contribution individuals like Mr Stewart make to business and the wider community, so we were delighted to present this award to such a deserving winner.
“Mr Stewart founded Brentwood-based The Point.1888, a fast-growing company that aims to revolutionise the brand extension industry through partnership licensing agreements. It gives 11% of its profits to charity and is a true inspiration to budding entrepreneurs across East Anglia.
“Last year Mr Eslamian scooped the ‘Highly Commended Director of the Year’ title, so this year - as Total Car Parks celebrates its tenth anniversary - it seems fitting that we should sponsor the 2018 Director’s Start-up Award to recognise other talent.”
She also praised Adam Cozens, Co-founder of the Perky Blenders coffee companies, who achieved the Highly Commended ‘Start-up Director of the Year’ title.
Mr Eslamian backed the Start-Up category in recognition of the hard-work and effort put into growing a business and making it a success.
He said: “This event highlights excellence and achievement in business and Total Car Parks is thrilled to be a part it and sponsor this important category.”
The IoD East of England Awards was held in the exclusive Jockey Club Rooms and celebrated the best of the region’s business leaders.
It recognised the key role that directors play, not only in UK’s economy, but also in job preservation and creation.
