Outstanding business success in Boston was celebrated last night.
This year’s Boston Business Awards, held at the PRSA, showcased the very best the town has to offer.
Following a three-course meal there was a speech from special guest Mark Hardy, strategic planning director at Sony Music.
He plays a central role in Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment empire, working on shows such as the X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent.
He is responsible for marketing world-renowned recording artists including Leona Lewis, One Direction and more recently last year’s X Factor winners, Little Mix.
Previously, he worked at The Walt Disney Company and Sony PlayStation.
The evening was compered by BCC Radio Lincolnshire’s Melvyn Prior.
