Kane Halsey shortlisted for IOD’s ‘Director of the Year’

We’re very proud to announce our founder and CEO, Kane Halsey, has been recognised by the Institute of Directors East of England ‘Director of the Year Award’! 

The IoD East of England awards celebrate the very best of the region’s business leaders. From start up, to large organisations, businesses in the East have a wealth of talent. These awards allow the IoD to recognise the contribution individuals make to our local business and the greater community. 

“These Awards celebrate leadership excellence, focusing on the individual’s achievement, the importance of the director’s role in the community, and the commitment and expertise which contributed to the success of their business. Kane should be very proud to have been shortlisted and we wish him all the best for the regional finals taking place on Friday 14 June.”  Simone Robinson, Regional Director, IoD East of England 

The winners will be announced at a celebratory lunch held the Jockey Club Rooms in the heart of Newmarket. This area is chosen as it is the most central place for entrants and judges to reach from each of the 5 East of England branches (Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire). 

“Growing a tech business is all consuming. 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 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, Pickr’s founder and CEO
