KEVIN HOLLINRAKE, the co-founder of listed estate agency group Hunters who entered Parliament this year as a Conservative MP, will be headline speaker at an event to celebrate the best of Yorkshire’s finance directors.

The entrepreneur will speak about devolution and the opportunities for Yorkshire business as the Government prepares to transfer powers to the regions.

The Yorkshire Finance Director Awards 2015 are held in partnership with law firm Squire Patton Boggs, recruitment specialist Sewell Business Group, accountants BDO, insurance brokerage Lockton Companies and The Yorkshire Post.

Mr Hollinrake said: “A strategic and disciplined approach to business finance is essential for any ambitious company who wants to make the most of the good times and successfully weather the storm when the going gets tough. I am delighted to help recognise the vital contribution that finance directors make to the Yorkshire economy.”

The judging session has now taken place and a spokeswoman for the sponsors said “it has been a difficult task to separate the award winners from such an outstanding crop of finalists”. Judges analysed commercial and managerial skills.

The awards ceremony takes place at Aspire in Leeds on November 12. Tickets can be bought from Nina Butterfield on 0113 242 1200.
