Delroy works for Incommunities Group as one of the company’s Directors. His responsibilities include delivering their multi-million pound regeneration and construction programme.

He also oversees the housing group’s award winning apprenticeship programme and their proactive work to attract more women and people from ethnic minority backgrounds into the construction sector.

In addition to his housing work, Delroy is Chairman of the Bradford University’s School of Management International Advisory Board. He also sits on a number of national leadership, construction, apprenticeship boards and groups including the CITB and the UK Government’s Apprenticeship Ambassadors Network.

Huddersfield man Delroy Beverley, said: “I am humbled and delighted in equal measure to be considered for such a highly coveted professional award. As always, the shortlist for this year reflects the diversity, diligence and dedication of the region’s very best business leaders.

“Working for such a successful and progressive employer as Incommunities underpins my own personal values of hard work, strong leadership and commitment to putting the customer at the heart of your business.”

Chairman of the Institute of Directors judging panel, Richard Tuplin said: “This is a very strong shortlist and it was a tough job for the judges to choose from a high standard of nominations.”

The regional awards will be announced at the Hilton Sheffield Hotel on Thursday, 11th June with the winners going through to the national awards later in the year.
