Moonrise 24hr Recruitment was honoured to sponsor the InspiraTees Awards 2024, held on a beautiful sunny day at the picturesque Hardwick Hall Hotel’s Lakeside Marquee. This year’s event was a resounding success, shining a spotlight on the Tees region’s most inspiring business leaders.

The InspiraTees top 30 list, determined by a poll among the region’s business community, showcased the exceptional talent and dedication of local leaders. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Dr Bill Scott OBE DL of Wilton Universal Group Limited and Wilton Engineering, who was awarded the prestigious InspiraTees trophy for topping this year’s poll.

The event saw 150 delegates enjoying the sunshine, a delectable buffet, and refreshing beverages. The atmosphere was electric as attendees celebrated the achievements of their peers, with framed certificates presented to leaders including Sharon Lane, Gary Dawson, Mike Racz, Zoe Lewis CBE, Imran Anwar, Claire Preston, Alisdair Beveridge, Vikki Jackson-Smith, Frans Caljé OBE, Karl Pemberton CDir FIoD Dip PFS, Alison McGee, Yasmin Khan, and Bianca Robinson.

We are immensely proud to have supported this event and to see so many inspiring business leaders from our area being recognised. The hard work and dedication of these individuals are what drive our region forward, making it a thriving hub of innovation and success.

A special thank you goes out to the Tees Business team—Vicky Nassau, Millie Smith, Chris Garbutt, Bob Cuffe MBE, Martin Walker, and Dave Allan—for organising and hosting such a fantastic event.

One of the highlights of the event was hearing the inspiring stories of the leaders, each emphasising the importance of hard work, teamwork, and authenticity. These themes resonated throughout the day, reflecting the core values that drive successful businesses in our region.

As we celebrated the top 30 business leaders, it was evident that their influence extends beyond their immediate business environments. Many of them are actively involved in local and national charities, making a significant impact on their communities.

The top five business leaders of 2024, as voted by the people of Teesside, were:

  1. Bill Scott OBE DL
  2. Sharon Lane
  3. Catherine Devereux
  4. Frans Caljé OBE
  5. Steve Gibson OBE

It was a privilege to witness the achievements of these remarkable individuals and to see so many familiar faces. The camaraderie and mutual respect among the attendees highlighted the strong community spirit that defines the Tees region.

Reflecting on the event, we at Moonrise 24hr Recruitment are inspired by the stories of perseverance and success. We are committed to continuing our support for the local business community and helping more companies invest in and support their teams to flourish.

InspiraTees 2024 was more than just an awards ceremony; it was a celebration of the collective achievements and the positive impact of the Tees region’s business leaders. We look forward to many more years of recognising and celebrating the best our region has to offer.

Thank you once again to everyone who made this event possible and to all the inspiring leaders who continue to make Teesside a great place to live and work.

Congratulations to all the winners! Here’s to another year of success and inspiration.
