This year, the Business Man of The Year Award was awarded to the fantastic David McCann from Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall!
It could not have gone to a more deserving gentleman this year - from when his application was first received, to the Meet and Greets, right through to the big night, David continuously impressed the judges with all of his hard work, inspiring leadership and initiative skills and his passion for Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall's growth.
When David took over seven years ago as Senior Director, he immediately put the business' plans to expand into action; in 12 months, WHN Solicitors evolved from a partnership to a limited company! The team at WHN Solicitors will all tell you the same - David is brilliant at what he does and it is clear that each member of staff is valued and proud to work at WHN Solicitors.
One thing that really stood out to the judges and was made clear in David's acceptance speech, was his sense of community spirit and how proud he is to be a 'Bury lad'. It is really important to the newest Bury Businessman of The Year to give back to the community and making use of all the different, thriving businesses we have in our town. This way, our local economy can grow and Bury will continue to prosper!
His love for the local community can also be reflected through his role as a governer at Bury College, which he then left to become a non-executive director at Rock Healthcare Ltd, a GP service which was, at the time, a not for profit organisation!
So, we'd like to send our congratulations to David McCann and him winning this award is some well deserved recognition for his hard work at WHN Solicitors and in the Bury community.
