CEO of Bondholder Knights Professional Services, David Beech, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year title in a national awards ceremony hailed by David Cameron as "the Oscars of great British business".
David Beech was recognised for his 'visionary leadership' and for creating a 'culture of innovation' in the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. He is one of ten finalists for the award, but the only person to be from the professional services sector.
David commented: "I am thrilled to have been shortlisted at the National Business Awards, especially in an entrepreneurial category with other forward-thinking and dynamic business leaders."
He continued: "Moving away from the traditional partnership model and operating like a 'proper business' has enabled Knights to achieve our full potential by being truly entrepreneurial in everything we do. We pride ourselves on always thinking originally, creatively and commercially."
As described by former Prime Minister David Cameron as "the Oscars of great British business," the competition's finalists were chosen from hundreds of businesses across 18 award categories. David Beech will now present to an expert judging panel who will ultimately determine the overall winners. These results are due to be announced on Tuesday 15th November.
Knights was the first professional services business the UK's commercial legal sector to attract private equity investment and is now the UK's fastest-growing 'full service' law firm.
