From professional services to construction, manufacturing to IT, engineering to retail, OMBs are the backbone of the North West business community. Insider’s OMB100 recognises those businesses that have achieved rapid growth and Directorbank is proud to be supporting this initiative alongside mid-market private equity investor LDC, investment management firm Brewin Dolphin, and law firm Gateley.

George Heppenstall, Directorbank’s Head of North West, comments:

“The OMB100 promotes the entrepreneurial capabilities and niche skill sets of some of the region’s most effective business leaders. Last year, almost 30% of Directorbank’s executive, non-executive and senior management placements were into Northern businesses, and a good number of these were North West-based. We look forward to supporting more regional businesses with Board and senior-level talent solutions in the future.”
