DLA Piper Business Person of the Year Award; IN ASSOCIATION WITH Rensburg Sheppards DLA PIPER.

LAST year's winner, Merseyside property developer George Downing, received this award in recognition of the huge investment his company, Downing Developments, has put into Liverpool's commercial office market in recent years.

The accolade is awarded to the business leader who, in the opinion of the judges, has done the most to enhance the standing of their business and the reputation of the region.

Philip Rooney, managing partner of law firm DLA Piper's Liverpool office, said: "Through the DLA Piper Business Person of the Year Award, we are delighted to recognise the leadership, innovative thinking and enormous commitment not only of the winner but also of all those who drive the region's economy through their flair, acumen and sheer determination to be the best in the market.

"Merseyside has a long and distinguished heritage of great business leaders, and it bodes well for the continuing success of the region that there is no shortage of true leaders here now. Their outstanding performances reflect well on the local business community," said Mr Rooney.
