Special Recognition Award
Congratulations go to Guilsborough Multi Academy Trust Director, Kevin Rogers, who was awarded a Special Recognition Award at the Northamptonshire Business Awards 2021
The Northamptonshire Business Awards 2021 ended with a surprise award for an individual who has been tireless in his efforts to support the county’s businesses, schools and charities, as well as the Chamber’s equality agenda.
The Special Recognition Award was presented to one of the most iconic figures in Northamptonshire’s business community – Kevin Rogers.
Kevin is well known to many people as one of the many leading lawyers at Wilson Browne Solicitors.
During the past three years he was also president of the Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce – regularly giving up his time to support the Chamber and county businesses - and he is a volunteer SEMLEP Enterprise Adviser at both Guilsborough Academy and Northampton School for Boys (NSB).
In addition, he is fondly known as the #SingingSolicitor as – inspired by his late Mum to show it’s ok not to be perfect - he often takes to LinkedIn, with or without his guitar, to perform in aid of local charities or simply to raise a smile.
After collecting his Special Recognition Award, Kevin said: “I’m lucky enough, in the job that I do, to be given the time to do other things to support Northamptonshire’s wider community.
“I feel incredibly lucky to work with the amazing teams at Wilson Browne Solicitors, Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, NSB and Guilsborough School.
“This award is as much about them – and about my family – as it is for me.”
Northamptonshire Chamber deputy chief executive Julie Maclennan added: “We introduced the Special Recognition Award this year to honour an individual who has championed our local community and worked hard to support others in our county.
“Kevin exemplifies this in everything he does and is an inspiration to so many people, so we were incredibly proud to honour him with the Northamptonshire Business Awards’ first ever Special Recognition Award.”
