Midshire’s Sales Manager, Nick Rose has been shortlisted for Business Development Professional of the Year at the Made in Manchester Awards (MIMAs) 2017.
Organised by Future Pro Manchester, the MIMAs celebrate the best in Manchester’s young talent, with 13 categories including: Mentor of the Year, Lawyer of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Accountant of the Year, and Business Development Professional of the Year.
The Business Development Professional of the Year is an award to recognise someone who is integral both in their company and externally throughout Manchester.
A consistent top performer, Nick was promoted to Sales Manager in 2012 and runs a team of 15 sales staff. Second in command to Managing Director, Julian Stafford, Nick sits on the management team and also represents the company in a Group board capacity.
Nick said: “I’m over the moon to have been shortlisted in such a strong category and amongst some very talented people. I’m very passionate about what I do here at Midshire, and to gain recognition for doing that is great. Roll on February and the MIMA’s.”
Fully supported by Julian and Midshire, Nick has gone on to win multiple business awards for his charity fundraising and community work.

Midshire is sponsoring the Manchester Champion category for the second year running at the MIMAs, which is the category that Nick won back in 2014 for his fundraising efforts for Francis House Children’s Hospice. He organised the Midshire F72 event, a Guinness World Record Breaking 72-hour football match which raised in excess of £46,000.
Midshire Managing Director, Julian Stafford commented “Not only does Nick take an active part in the business, he also gives a lot of time to charity, especially local organisations, such as Valley School and Francis House Children’s Hospice.
