It’s with slightly heavy heads this morning that we thank the Business Insider for hosting and organising the East Midlands Dealmakers Awards at the Belfry, Nottingham yesterday evening.

This is an annual event that recognises achievements and successes by the firms, funders and individuals driving this region’s deal making sector.

We were really pleased to be sponsors of the drinks reception and want to pass on a huge congratulations to both the winners Eversheds Sutherland, PKF Cooper Parry, LDC, Johnsons Aggregates & Recycling’s, Westleigh Partnership, Rob Burden (Clearwater International) and all of the category finalists.
