2019 Finance Awards North West Winners

Professionals and businesses were honoured across 15 award categories at a prestigious awards ceremony on Thursday 17th October at The Hilton Manchester. The awards recognised the outstanding achievements of professionals and businesses, the diversity of talent in the region and future leaders set to innovate and shape the industry. Entertainment came from comedian and North West native, Justin Moorhouse, and live music from the Velveteers.

Thanks to your generous support, we raised over £2,300 on the night for Cancer Research UK.

Applications for the 2020 Finance Awards North West will open early next year.
