Twisted Automotive founder and managing director Charles Fawcett has been nominated for a prestigious Institute of Directors Award.
Shortlisted in the Innovation category for Director of the Year in the Yorkshire & North East region, the award recognises Fawcett’s work to develop Twisted into being a true industry leader, overseeing significant growth and evolution during the company’s 17-year history and, in particular, over the last 12 months.
The Yorkshire & North East Director of the Year Awards aim to raise awareness of the significant contribution business leaders can make to society and to economic prosperity in our region, while recognising the individuals who have displayed the highest standards of leadership in business, public and third sectors.
The Award winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held at The Principal, York, on Thursday 5th July, hosted by BBC News’ business and consumer affairs correspondent, Danni Hewson.
Fawcett said: “It is a real honour to be shortlisted for an IoD award, which recognises the hard work of the entire Twisted team during the last year. We’re thrilled, too, to be nominated in the Innovation category.
“Without innovation, we would not have the strength of brand. We’re known for our production of the world’s best Defender because of our ongoing product development, and so we remain steadfast in our commitment to finding ways to make our vehicles that little bit faster, stronger, smoother, tougher, harder or softer.”
