Following on from a very successful few months we are excited to announce that our Managing Director, Caroline Packer, is one of the two finalists for the Visionary Leadership Award at the CILEx National Awards in September.
The awards were very highly contended – CILEx received more than 350 nominations across the 14 categories. To get to this stage is a massive achievement for Caroline, but one that can quite clearly be attributed to Caroline’s hard work and the passion and dedication she demonstrates in ensuring a consistently high service is provided by her company.
Competition was fierce and the standards were exceptionally high in these sought-after awards as noted by the CILEx Chief Executive Victoria Hurdley, who stated that the independent judging panel congratulated CILEx on both the high calibre of nominees and the quality of nominations received.
The CILEx National Awards were launched last year to celebrate the exceptional talent, innovation and achievement of CILEx members, supporters and stakeholders. According to their website:
“These exclusive awards recognise individuals, organisations and teams that are providing exemplary service, advice and support to those seeking access to justice. Celebrating the innovative recruitment and professional development practices that are widening access to a career in the legal profession to a more diverse audience. CILEx has been celebrating the achievements of its members, their employers and partners for many years. We are proud to formally celebrate what we have always known, that we support and represent a wealth of talented people and organisations. We will be acknowledging those who are leading the way in an ever changing, forward thinking, professional legal services sector and whose work closely aligns to our mission, our vision and our values.”
Whilst both of the two finalists have been announced in advance, CILEx will exclusively reveal the winner of the award live at the CILEx National Awards Ceremony on 5th September 2019 at Madame Tussauds in London. The awards will be hosted by Claudia Winkleman alongside the CILEx Chief Executive Officer, Linda Ford, together with a representative from the award sponsor.
Caroline was the the recipient of the CILEx President’s Award in 2017. She was shortlisted for the same CILEx Visionary Leadership Award last year in 2018 and this year was also shortlisted for the CILEx Legal Expert award.
This award follows on from what has already been a highly successful year for Caroline and her company, DMR Collation. Caroline was shortlisted for the award of Chartered Legal Executive (CILEx) of the year 2019 at the Devon & Somerset Law Society’s Legal Awards and DMR Collation were Highly Commended for the second year running in the category of Supporting the Industry (1-25 employees) at the Modern Law Awards 2019.
We have everything crossed for 5th September 2019 and wish Caroline the best of luck at the CILEx National Awards.
