Robinson Services are delighted to announce that David Robinson, Managing Director of Robinson Services has won the award for Family Business Director of the Year at the Northern Ireland Institute of Directors awards held recently in the Merchant Hotel Belfast. Entrants for this award were all directors in second-generation or more family businesses who have responded to the specific challenges that face directors in such well established family firms, and David Robinson fought off some very stiff competition to emerge the winner of this prestigious award.

The winners are now nominated for the Institute of Directors Lunn’s Award of Excellence, which will be presented at the IOD Annual Dinner on 7 February in the Europa Hotel. The winners are also nominated for the national 2013 Director of the Year Awards held in London in Autumn next year.  Everyone at Robinson Services would like to say a huge congratulations to David, who thoroughly deserved to win as he continually leads Robinson Services forward with his hard work and commitment to the company.

David Robinson, Managing Director at Robinson Services, commented;

“I am extremely delighted and pleasantly surprised to have won the award for the Institute of Directors Family Business Director of the Year.  I would like to dedicate the award to my father, Jim Robinson, who established Robinson Services over 40 years ago, and whose hard work and vision has made the company what it is today and he still pays us the occasional visit at our Antrim Head office to check we are keeping up to the high levels of customer service the standards he established.”
