Mazuma is delighted to announce that our co-founder and Commercial Director, Lucy Cohen, is a finalist for an Institute of Directors (IoD) award; Lucy has been nominated for Wales Director of the Year in the innovation category. The award recognises leaders that have created an innovative and transformational idea that illustrates creative thinking to surpass their competition. They must also improve commercial performance, operational effectiveness or customer engagement.
The IoD was founded in 1903 and implements a Royal Charter to support, represent and set standards for business leaders nationwide. The organisation supports business leaders to create sustainable businesses that offer quality jobs, improved opportunities, and generally make regions and nations better places to live and work.
The annual Wales Director of the Year Awards represents the pinnacle of leadership and business excellence throughout Wales. Directors from businesses such as Acorn Executive Search, Cardiff Airport, Sony UK Technologies, Hugh Phillips and GoCompare are just a few that have been recognised by these prestigious awards.
Ahead of the awards ceremony, Lucy comments:
“I am thrilled to be a finalist for the Wales Director of the Year in the innovation category. It’s an absolute honour to be recognised by the Institute of Directors for the work we do here at Mazuma. We strive to provide our customers with the best service possible by making sure that we are constantly changing and adapting to the environment in which we work. To be acknowledged for this work is extremely humbling and motivating, and I am very much looking forward to the awards ceremony to meet other like minded leaders from Wales!”
