BUSINESS DIRECTOR OF THE YEAR

Mark Woolley, Electric London

“The finalists in my category are my icons! I remember looking at Phil Smith and thinking 'I can be a hairdresser and have a Ferrari!' It’s an honour to be listed amongst them.

You can ring anyone in this industry and get advice! I love that.”
