Sophie Chandauka, co-founder and chair of the awards, mentioned: “This year’s winners are not only performing outstanding factors in their own organisations, but also their own life.”

She praised the “ingenuity, resilience and professional savviness” of this year’s mounting stars and explained the successful senior leaders “epitomise” the meaning of function versions: “They are main substantial industrial functions while performing as smart counsel for their investors, boards of directors and soaring talent for the duration of the pandemic and period of social unrest.”

Segun Osuntokun of law company Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner was named black British businessperson of 2020 at final year’s ceremony.

In an job interview with The Telegraph, Mr Osuntokun called for organization leaders to be certain the momentum powering Black Lives Issue and strengthening range in the Metropolis was not just “a moment”.
