Press Release Body: Bigmouthmedia CEO Steve Leach has been named Regional Director of the Year at a prestigious annual event organised by the Institute of Directors in Scotland.
Scooping the prize in his first year as a nominee, the founder of Europe's largest digital marketing agency edged ahead of a shortlist of Scotland's best entrepreneurial talent to walk out a winner from a packed presentation dinner. Accorded the honour by a judging panel consisting of some of the country's most influential business figures, the award represents the fourth major accolade he has picked up in the last 12 months.
"I'm absolutely delighted. Scottish Awards have always been very important to us because while we may have become a rapidly expanding international organisation, our UK headquarters is still in Edinburgh and we are extremely proud of the roots that made the company what it is today," said Leach.
Now in their fourth year, the prizes for IoD Scotland's Director of the Year Awards were presented at a ceremony in Glasgow's Crowne Plaza last night.
The event marks the start of an exciting month for Leach and the bigmouthmedia team. Already short listed for a raft of major accolades, March will see the company competing for gongs at the Revolution Awards, Fast Growth Business Awards and the UK Technology and Innovation Awards.
