Kane Halsey named the East’s Start-up Director of the Year

We’ve not been shy about sharing the photos but consider this our official announcement! We’re very proud to say our founder and CEO, Kane Halsey, has been named the Institute of Directors East of England ‘Start-up Director of the Year’.

The IOD’s Director of the Year Awards represents the pinnacle of leadership and business excellence. The aim of the programme is to highlight the significant contribution business leaders make to society as well as the economic prosperity of the Eastern region.

The awards give the business community a chance to acknowledge the excellence and professionalism we’re fortunate to have here in the Enterprising East. Kane is delighted to be considered among them.

Kane was presented with the award at a celebratory Awards Lunch held at the Jockey Club Rooms, Newmarket on Friday 14th of June.

“To receive this level of recognition from a prestigious body like the IOD is a huge validation of Pickr’s journey so far! It’s been a huge honour to share the IOD shortlist with so many other amazing directors. I’m very proud to be part of a group of businesses thriving in the East.” Kane Halsey, CEO of Pickr

Kane’s commitment to building an inclusive company culture saw him clinch the award. On receiving the submission, the panel of industry judges commented, “In addition to being a self-motivator, Kane also recognises and rewards those working with him”. The sentiment of these comments was also echoed in Pickr’s recent shortlist as ‘The Best Place to Work in Digital’ in the national Technology Leaders Awards.
