Michael Owen, Group CFO at The Delivery Group has picked up a coveted finance award for his work with the business over the last year.
Mike was awarded “Large Company Finance Director of the year” at the North West Finance Awards (NWFA). The award was in recognition for his outstanding contribution in making The Delivery Group the fastest growing mail firm in the UK.
Over 500 people from the finance community across the North West attended the dinner and awards evening held at the Macron Stadium, Bolton. The awards celebrate outstanding achievement for both individuals and teams in the finance and accounting departments of every business sector.
This was the seventh annual event. David Stanford, CIMA Deputy President, has been on the NWFA judging panel since its inception. He observed that this year: “Many of the nominations were of really high quality. Some entrants were so strong that in previous years they would probably have won. The calibre this year was quite exceptional.”
Paul Carvell, Chairman of The Delivery Group, said: “Mike has made a huge contribution to the growth and expansion of The Delivery Group over the last year and it’s great to see this hard work being recognised in the NWFA awards.”
The award follows on from Mike’s success at the 2012 North West Finance Awards where he picked up the “Young Finance Director of the year” accolade.
Speaking shortly after the event Mike said “It’s a real privilege to be recognised by the NWFA once again and great testament to what we are achieving as a team and a business at The Delivery Group. The award coincides with our recent publication in the Sunday Times Top Track 250 so wraps up a great week for the team.”
