Young director has Scotland in safe hands


Young director has Scotland in safe hands

Top business leaders from across the country recently gathered at Glasgow’s DoubleTree by Hilton for a glittering awards ceremony organised by the Institute of Directors. A wide variety of sectors, industries and businesses were represented, but what united them all was the talented, innovative and passionate driving forces behind each one – the company directors that are moving Scotland forward.

incovo’s CEO, Chris Thomas, was delighted to be amongst them, having been nominated and shortlisted for the Young Director of the Year award. Although he was pipped at the final post and missed out on the title, the judges were full of praise for Chris’s approach to leadership.

Commenting on his track record of success, they highlighted Chris’s ‘Impressive growth and expansion evidence. Strong evidence presented. Innovative approaches demonstrated. Good clear statements on skills. Strong evidence of knowledge development. An outstanding application’.

In addition, the awards ceremony host, Grant Stott, noted, ‘What’s exciting is the fantastic number and calibre of entries received, particularly in the Inclusivity, Young Director and Start-Up Director categories – if these folk are the future, then we’re in safe hands’.

This is incredible feedback, especially given the fact Chris took on the role of CEO just two years ago.
Reflecting on the night Chris said, ‘Being nominated and shortlisted for an Institute of Directors award has been an amazing experience. To see the outstanding talent this country is producing, and to be included amongst such high calibre candidates means so much to me’.

Of course, this is just the start for Chris – he believes he’s got what it takes to develop incovo into Scotland’s leading business telecommunications and imaging solutions provider. And with the recognition he is now receiving for his tireless hard work, there is no doubt that business leaders across the country will pay close attention to Chris to see how he continues to take incovo from strength to strength.
