SME News is delighted to present the CEO of the Year Awards for the very first time!
This is a brand-new awards programme that aims to honour and reward the most outstanding and influential CEOs in the UK who have gone above and beyond to drive their business forwards in the challenges of the current economic climate.
The CEO of the Year Awards 2023 recognises the achievements, innovations, and visions of CEOs across various sectors and industries within the UK.
The landscape that CEOs operate in is evolving each year as more women are appointed to CEO roles, especially in the public sector. This is a sign of progress in this field as female CEOs make up 36% of the total in 2022. UK CEOs also face exciting opportunities to adopt sustainable practices and to focus on diversity and inclusion. Some companies are turning to outsourcing CEOs who have expertise in these areas. Others are making their businesses more energy efficient and reducing their carbon footprint. CEOs are also challenged by the high turnover rate, which rose to 12.7% in 2022, meaning that there are more chances for new and young leaders to emerge and make a difference with fresh ideas.
SME News is dedicated to acknowledging and celebrating the most deserving and best performing SMEs that are committed to serving their clients and customers across the UK. By organising the CEO of the Year Awards, SME News aims to showcase the achievements and stories of the most influential and inspiring CEOs in the UK business scene.
The awards process is straightforward; alongside nominations, we have our dedicated in-house research team that source, analyse and reward individuals that we think deserve to be recognised for their achievements. Using this method means that, regardless of business size or sector, CEOs can be judged on a level-playing ground.
This awards programme is completely free to enter and if you are lucky enough to be successful, you will be presented to our circulation of 78,000 and promoted on our official website for a minimum of 12 months.
In addition, our awardees are welcome to choose from our range of competitively priced promotional opportunities to increase exposure of the good news!
