Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd’s Chief Executive Dr Nik Kotecha OBE has been named as one of the UK’s top 100 most inspirational and innovative individuals.
Dr Kotecha was one of only two East Midlands individuals to be named on the 2017 ‘Faces of a Vibrant Economy’ list, produced by business and financial advisers, Grant Thornton UK.
The list identifies people – from emerging entrepreneurs to big business names – who have developed a culture that empowers, develops and motivates their people. It also highlights those who make a positive contribution to the local and wider national community, and demonstrate excellence in growth, innovation and purpose.
Chris Frostwick, partner and practice leader of Grant Thornton’s Leicester office, said: “Our two local Faces of a Vibrant Economy are both exceptional leaders, driving positive results against a clearly defined purpose. Their commitment and passion makes us want to be like them, to work with them and to learn from them.
“These leaders show us how business can be a force for good in society, how creative approaches to public services and commitment to investing in your people can drive superior results and how passion, coupled with purpose and a great idea can change the world for the better.”
