Ryan Brown wins award for Director of the Year for the South West of Scotland. 

Ryan Brown scooped the award for Director of the Year Small/Medium Business for the South West of Scotland at last night’s Institute of Director awards held at Double Tree by Hilton, Glasgow.  

Ryan Brown, Managing Director stated

“Winning this award has been a great achievement for me. I was delighted to be shortlisted as a finalists in this category, especially with the calibre of nominees this year, Eddie Black and the Eco-Genics team are certainly worthy competition and a big congratulations to him and his team; the awards are a great initiative to promote business to the wider audience and provide a great opportunity to network with likeminded individuals. Winning this award is testament to the hard work of our entire team as I couldn’t have achieved this success without them and I would like to take the time to give a special thanks to my dad, Jim Brown, our chairman for all his support and encouragement.” 
“I would like to thank everyone who has supported us throughout the years to reach our goals and grow our business. I look forward to what the future holds with our ambitious expansion plans.”  

Ryan Brown beat off some tough competition in order to make the regional shortlist and was up against some tough competition with Eddie Black who is director of local business Eco-Genics. 

This award is designed to celebrate those directors working in a business that employs under 250 employees and has an annual turnover of less than £25 million. It is awarded to the business that can show outstanding initiative, boldness and imagination in enterprise, as well as sound management practices. Entrants to this award are expected to demonstrate sustainable growth combined with a degree of commercial success that is exceptional for the size of the business. 

Ryan Brown was born and raised in Dumfries and Galloway, he took the risk to start Robinsons Scotland alongside his dad in 2005 and 14 years later they have grown from 1 business to 5 with 116 employees and growing!  

Serial entrepreneur Ryan and Jim Brown have founded several successful construction and manufacturing businesses, securing their position as true entrepreneurial champions.  

With exciting and ambitious expansion plans, the Browns aren’t slowing down anytime soon and are on track to reach new heights in the years to come. 

With an overall strategy for future development for Robinsons Scotland, their aim is to create a £30m a year turnover and expand their tonnage to 350 units per week, establishing further manufacturing opportunities in Lockerbie to support industry in the local area. 

The other businesses that Ryan has developed alongside Robinsons such as CWP Concrete have gone from strength to strength and they have already expanded their site within the first 3 years of trading to include two factories with over 4000m² space and expanded their product range from only offering concrete panels to developing a range of precast concrete products such as A Walls and Lego Blocks that have taken the market by storm.  

Ryan fought off stiff competition to scoop the prestigious accolade at this year’s Institute of Director Awards and is cementing his place as one of the top upcoming construction directors in the industry and with no plans to slow down anytime soon, serial entrepreneur Ryan Brown and his family are set to take their companies to new heights over the coming years.
