RoyaleLife’s Financial Director Jason Williams has been named as a finalist in this year’s Central South Mid-Market FD of the Year Awards by accountancy and business advisory firm BDO LLP and specialist recruitment consultancy CMA Recruitment Group.
This is the second year that BDO has partnered with CMA Recruitment Group to discover what it takes to be a successful finance director and to identify the most talented and high-achieving individuals in privately owned companies based in the Central South.
Malcolm Thixton, lead partner at BDO Southampton, spoke at the glittering ceremony at the Hilton Ageas attended by more than 150 guests. He said: “The quality of entries has been extremely high this year. The competition was so tight that after much debate we had to make the decision to shortlist four finalists instead of three.”
Richard Dibden, Commercial Director at CMA Recruitment Group, said: “It’s been fascinating to meet individuals that really exemplify a new breed of finance directors.
Speaking of RoyaleLife’s FD, Richard said: “Jason has demonstrated a high level of competence, drive and ambition in being chosen as a finalist in an outstanding field of entrants.”
“Since joining RoyaleLife – the UK’s leading provider of bungalow living - Jason has played a significant role in redeveloping the operating model, moving the company into the residential market and also personally redesigning the value proposition by developing a new Park Concept.
“As a first for the sector at this level, Jason also secured £250m in funding, supporting continued land acquisition and site development. During the last 12 months, he has also project managed the refurbishment of the existing office as well as acquiring a new facility in Whiteley.”
On receiving his accolade, Jason said: “Personally I was thrilled to be in such impressive company but more than that, the award recognises all the hard work by the team at RoyaleLife in making it the UK’s market leader.”
