The managing partner at law firm DMH Stallard has been named the Gatwick Diamond Business Person of the Year 2020.
Richard Pollins received the prestigious award during the online ceremony hosted by the writer and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth.
The awards have become a well established fixture on the regional business calendar. In addition to showcasing the achievements of individual business people and businesses across a range of categories, they also highlight the success of the Gatwick Diamond economic area.
During Richard’s six years as managing partner, DMH Stallard has grown quickly and has strengthened its reputation for being the leading firm in the Gatwick Diamond area for business and private clients.
“I am very honoured and humbled to receive this award in a year which has obviously been so difficult for everyone. The personal recognition I have received is very much down to the support I have had over the years from my outstanding colleagues across our offices in Sussex, Surrey and London. I am lucky to work with such a fabulous group of people.”
The recipient of the Business Person of the Year must demonstrate their clear vision and strategy and commitment to growing their business in the Gatwick Diamond area.
“DMH Stallard has grown quickly in recent years, both organically and through acquisitions and merger, and further expansion will follow in 2021. It’s been hard work but we’ve created an amazing firm with amazing people which will continue to go from strength to strength; and one which is very much fit for purpose in the new normal. “
