Scotland’s best in business triumph at the Director of the Year Awards

  • Alan Foy of Smart Metering Systems and Sara Speirs of Spectrum Service Solutions scoop top awards
  • For the first time, female directors dominate the winners table (65%)

Scotland’s top executives have been honoured in this year’s IoD Scotland Director of the Year Awards, held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow.

Susan Deacon, Chair of the IoD in Scotland, who was a member of the judging panel, said of the two main winners:

“The quality and quantity of entries received were of an impressively high standard this year, and Alan was a clear winner. Smart Metering Systems is a real Scottish success story, in no small part due to Alan’s vision and leadership. To have grown at this pace, to have listed and to have further substantial growth prospects is very impressive, and an inspiration to other start-ups.  Alan fully deserves to be recognised as outstanding.

“Sara Speirs has built Spectrum into a top-rated FM provider. She has a strong vision about where the business is going and a clear commitment to best practice and sustainability, values which the IoD encourages across its membership.  Sara has demonstrated a real ability to significantly grow her business, by focusing on employee development, quality and innovation. She is a very worthy winner of this award.”

IoD Scotland Director of the Year Awards were presented in a further seven categories.
