Win for Dunbia at Directors Awards

Dunbia managing director Jim Dobson has been awarded Large Company Director of the Year at the NI Institute of Directors Awards.

He was presented with the accolade alongside eight other business leaders, who were recognised for their contributions to their successful businesses.

The judges commented on Dobson’s award and said: “The panel were hugely impressed with Jim’s entrepreneurial spirit, having led an organisation from very humble origins to an employer of almost 4,000 people.

“In a traditional sector of the Northern Ireland economy, Jim has overseen growth by acquisition, but also through exporting, innovation and attention to the training and development of staff at all levels in the company.”

Dobson claimed he was “honoured” to receive the award and said he wanted to “extend it to the group board and management teams” of Dunbia for their pivotal role in the success.

“To receive this accolade alongside other such prominent and esteemed directors is a real privilege, and I believe the entrepreneurial culture and focus on developing our people will continue to be the driver for future growth in Dunbia,” he added.

The annual awards ceremony took place at the Merchant Hotel, Belfast this year, attended by Northern Ireland Employment and Learning Minister Dr Stephen Farry.
