Ben Roberts receives commendation as director of family business.
Ben Roberts, managing director of Welsh jewellery brand Clogau Gold, has been highly commended for his work at the Directors Director of the Year Awards.
Roberts was commended in the Family Business Director of the Year category during the Institute of Directors’ Director of the Year Awards UK Final, held last Friday in Hyde Park.
He was named a finalist back in July, amongst five other business talents from across the UK, and fell just short of claiming the coveted title.
After being awarded Young Director of the Year – North Wales, at the regional IoD Awards in April 2011, Roberts was entitled to enter the UK Final awards.
He and his colleague Sonia Menezes were named Business Big Shots in this year’s Professional Jeweller Hot 100. When speaking to Professional Jeweller about his role within the company Roberts had quipped that he was so committed to the company that even on his first family holiday in several years this year he’d be taking ‘several spare phone batteries’ to ensure he didn’t miss a thing.
