Alongside our success on behalf of clients, Benchmark International is immensely proud to announce that Roger Forshaw, Associate Director, has won the ‘Rising Star’ award at the annual JCI Manchester Young Talent Awards.
The Awards recognise outstanding individuals between the ages of 18-39 exemplifying the best attributes of the North’s young people, with nominees across sectors including finance, legal, property, recruitment, marketing and media.
JCI Manchester President 2015, Kim Holden says “This is the sixth year of the Manchester Young Talent Awards and each year we are blown away by the superior level of the applications. JCI Manchester is at the forefront of leading the charge on showcasing not just to Manchester but nationally that Manchester has talent – big talent!”
Benchmark International was also shortlisted for Team of the Year and Roger’s victory is his second award in two years, having been part of the ‘Young Team of the Year’ at the 2014’s Insider Dealmakers event. The award also comes shortly after his recent nomination for ‘Young Deal Maker of the Year’ at this year’s Insider Dealmakers awards ceremony.
Having secured victory in the ‘Technology Deal of the Year (Over $250M to $500M)’ category at the 14th Annual M&A Advisor Awards in New York early last week, this is a time to celebrate our achievements and both awards highlight the successful global efforts of the entire Benchmark International team.
Nick Hulme, Managing Director at Benchmark International, commented “Roger is a versatile professional and contributes to a team of exceptional talent. All of us at Benchmark International are delighted to see this young professional recognised for continuous hard work. The entire team would like to congratulate Roger on yet another great achievement.”
