Johnathan Milner was awarded under the unquoted/private equity backed category at the Non-Executive Director Awards 2017, sponsored by Peel Hunt.
Milner, who has assisted three technology companies to initial public offering on London’s AIM listing, was recognised for its support to the UK life sciences sector and tech start-ups.
Syndicate Room said in a statement that Milner encouraged the business to carry out fewer, but better quality projects that helped it to return to high growth with revenues tripling albeit “challenging times”.
The company said Milner regularly challenged assumptions and changed the formal of board meetings to give issues and key performance indicators “equal footing”.
“It’s fantastic to see Jonathan acknowledged by this prestigious organisation”, said Syndicate Room’s chief executive Gonçalo de Vasconcelos.
“He asks brilliant questions and contributes with great ideas but he is always open to be proven wrong and willing to openly accept other people’s ideas.”
