The shortlist has been announced for the third annual awards of Future Faces, the young professionals’ arm of Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce - and the CEO of one of WMAHSN's Serendip tenants is up for a gong.
Rich Westman, the founder and CEO of Kaido Group Ltd, got the nod in the Future Face of Technology and Innovation category. The company is behind the Kaido Insights Engine, which turns health data from connected health monitoring devices into actionable insights for patients, clinicians and businesses.
The shortlisting tops off a great couple of weeks for Kaido Group, who also lifted one of WMAHSN's Celebration of Innovation Awards last week.
Rich will find out if he has been successful at Future Faces’ annual dinner and awards ceremony at Edgbaston Stadium on Friday 15 September. The overall Future Face of Greater Birmingham award will be handed out to one of the winners of the seven individual sector categories.
Chief operating officer at the Chamber, Russell Jeans, who chaired the judging panel, said: “The volume and high calibre of applications received are a sign of how seriously the business community is taking these awards. As a region, it is more important than ever that we support the development of our young professionals and one way of doing this is to recognise their efforts and achievements.The Future Faces awards are a fantastic way of doing precisely that.”
The full shortlist can be found on the Greater Birmingham Chambers website.
