Newry man Neil Conlon is celebrating this week after he received the news that he has been shortlisted for the Belfast ‘Young Business Man of the Year’ award. Neil found out this week that he will join other gifted business men from Belfast in a tussle for the top accolade. The 28 year old, who hails from Newry’s Dublin Road area, has been working for CPS Property Consultants as a Financial Director this past two years. Speaking to Newry Times, Neil described his role in CPS as being “heavily involved in the management of the 5 branch network of CPS, specifically in the areas of financial management, day to day operations and I also take a lead role advising corporate clients on asset disposal, acquisition and management.” Delighted with the recognition for his hard work, the Newry native continued, “Being recognised by your fellow peers is very important. Considering I am not a long term resident of Belfast it makes it that bit sweeter, to break into the Belfast market and be recognised for making a contribution to the business community is very rewarding for all the hard work.” He added, “The voting for the award is an online vote so I’d appreciate if all readers can vote for me at;” Businesses across Belfast will be commended at the awards ceremony for their fine achievements at the hotly contested and highly anticipated Belfast Business Awards next month. The 2012 Belfast Business Awards is set to be the most exciting yet, with a high calibre of entries across 11 award categories, making the job of the independent judging panel even more difficult. Shortlisted businesses will discover their fate at the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, being held on 8th November 2012 at Belfast City Hall, when all category winners will be announced. For the first time, the general public will be able to vote to determine the winners of Best Hospitality Business, Young Business Person of the Year and Business Person of the Year. Voting is now open for shortlisted businesses in these categories and will close at 4pm on 19 October 2012.
