A Brae mussel farmer is among six Highlands and Islands people named as finalists in the Institute of Directors (IoD) Scotland’s director of the year awards.
Michael Laurenson, managing director of Blueshell Mussels, has shortlisted in the regional director category.
IoD Scotland executive director David Watt said: “The submissions this year have been stronger than ever and it’s great to see so many talented individuals from the Highlands and Islands reaching the shortlist.
“The awards have become synonymous with recognising and celebrating the successes of Scotland’s business leaders and their efforts to drive forward innovation and growth for their organisations and the economy. Even in these challenging times, we have leaders in all aspects of our society who are making a real difference.
“It is important that their leadership and general contribution is publicly acknowledged. As such, it’s therefore with great pride that we’re able to congratulate such hardworking, ambitious individuals who are making a valuable contribution to Scotland today.”
The winners will be announced at an event on Thursday 22nd March at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow.
