A SHOREHAM director has been named among the region’s top business leaders.
Jill Whittaker, managing director of HIT Training, has been named Director of the Year in the Institute of Directors London and South East Awards.
The company is a specialist training and apprenticeship provider for the UK’s hospitality, hotel and catering industry.
Jill said: “I was delighted to be nominated for this award in the first place. For a group of my peers to put me up for this and then to actually win the award is really quite something.”
Rodger Broad, IoD director, said: “The standard set by all our finalists was exceptional, so for Jill to win is a tremendous achievement.
“She goes forward to the UK IoD awards in October where she will compete for the title of UK Director of the Year.”
Jill received her award last Wednesday at the Institute of Directors in Pall Mall, London.
