ecosurety’s commercial director James Piper has been selected as a finalist for the Institute of Directors (IoD) South West Director of the Year Awards.
James Piper, 28, who started at ecosurety as a graduate trainee, will compete with others in the Young Director of the Year category at a ceremony on 9 June at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol. If he succeeds, he will go forward to represent the region at the IoD National Director of the Year Awards later this year.
Since he started at ecosurety in 2009, James has worked in every department of the business, including marketing, sales and IT. During that time he has helped the company evolve into one of the fastest growing resource efficiency specialists in the UK, with 14 new graduates recently joining.
Last year James was instrumental in driving forward ecosurety’s journey-share scheme joinmyjourney, which has now been taken up by a number of large city employers, including the University of the West of England, North Bristol NHS Trust as well as at Aztec West business park where ecosurety is based.
He also lobbies the Government on waste issues and oversees the company’s management and benefits structure. ecosurety was recently among just seven percent of Investors in People accredited companies to be awarded a Gold award.
James says, “I am extremely honoured to be a finalist for such a prestigious award. The South West has some fantastic, innovative companies and leaders and it’s a real privilege to be selected and represent the region at this level.”
