A healthcare business leader has won a prestigious prize in this year’s Director of the Year awards, run by the Institute of Directors.
PJ Care’s chief executive officer Johann van Zyl has been named Family Business Director of the Year for the London and South East region.
Johann, who has been CEO at independent healthcare provider PJ Care since August 2012, said:
This is a real thrill for me. I am absolutely delighted to have been chosen as the winner of this prize from what was a really impressive field of entrants.
It means a lot to me personally, but I have to pay tribute to all my colleagues and friends at PJ Care who are an absolute joy to work with.
I cannot thank them enough for their passion and commitment. I look forward to my dealings with them every single day.
He picked up the Director of the Year trophy at a ceremony in the prestigious surroundings of the Nash Room at the Institute of Directors in Pall Mall, London.
Johann and other winners from across the whole of London and the south east of England are automatically entered for the national award later in the year.
