Finance Awards Wales 2019 is open for nominations.

Following the success of the 2018 awards, this year’s nominations can be submitted until January 11, with the winners announced in Cardiff on April 5, 2019.

Finance Awards Wales MD Matt Hyde said: “Our vision - to recognise, attract and invest in finance talent - is core to what we are doing.

"Last year we were proud to recognise more than 40 winners across 11 categories, shining a light on the rich talent we have in Wales and celebrating the valuable work of the finance sector.”

One of last year's winners was Hannah Heath, of Newport-based Jojo Mama Bebe who took home the title of best CFO / FD.

This year’s judging panel sees a return of Ken Poole, as chairman, Emma Peterson, Mark Tweed and Mike Fowler, with some new judges joining the team.

Economy Secretary Ken Skates said: “I welcome this second year of the Finance Awards Wales and applaud the organisers’ ongoing work to showcase the talented professionals who make up our flourishing Finance sector.

“The calibre of nominations at last year’s Awards proved that Wales has the skills to compete at the highest levels of world business. Recognising the many achievements of Wales’ Finance sector is important and I look forward to us celebrating more excellence and success at the 2019 Awards.”
