Bradford’s premier business event will be hosted by Yorkshire Media Partners director and former editor of the Telegraph & Argus, Perry Austin-Clarke.
Perry, who edited the T&A for almost 25 years, stepped down from the post, and his role of Group Editor of Newsquest (Yorkshire), in April this year to launch his own media business.
He is now owner and director of Yorkshire Media Partners Ltd, which specialises in cost-effective PR, media and publishing support for small businesses, education providers, charities and other not-for-profit organisations, including the public sector.
Perry (pictured, above, at last year’s awards) said: “Having launched the Bradford Means Business Awards seven years ago and watched them grow to the fabulous event they have become, I’m really pleased to be able to continue my association with them as presenter and I’m looking forward to another brilliant evening celebrating the very best of the district’s business talent and success.”
The event takes place on Thursday, July 6, at the Aagrah Midpoint, at Thornbury.
Thirty firms and individuals have been shortlisted for the ten awards, with on winner also taking away the Winner of Winners award for the most significant contribution to business in the district over the previous 12 months.
