The Business Leader Awards are the most prestigious in the region and celebrate business and enterprise across a wide range of organisations.
The award winners were chosen by a judging panel of senior business and community figures, carefully selected for their expertise and professionalism. The Rising Star Award recognises a young business person aged under 35 who demonstrates enterprise, innovation and entrepreneurial flair.
“What an incredible honour to be recognised with the Business Leader Rising Star Award. It has been an amazing journey to get to where I am today and it is truly humbling to receive this recognition" commented James.
“I am proud to lead a brilliant team at Ecosurety and together we are breaking new ground with some really exciting developments in our industry.”
James, 29, was also recently named IoD Young Director of the Year in the South West and is now vying for the national title, to be announced on 21 October.
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.
On the 27 September Ecosurety is launching Circularety, a new initiative that will increase transparency in the PRN and recycling industry.
