The ProShare Awards: check out all the winners here!

7 December 2021

By Martha Parkhurst

Monday was a special night for everyone in the share plan world, as the 2021 annual ProShare Awards got underway at London’s Park Lane Hilton hotel.

After another busy and challenging year, it was great to see the industry come together to recognise so many incredible achievements. This year’s awards were even more special, as they also marked the first time the share plan community has been able to come together in person since 2019. The night was a sell-out, attracting hundreds of guests who got to enjoy some comedy from Jo Caulfield, great food and booze, a mingle, possibly a spot at the photo stand (the props are a must) and dance. Well done to Murray Tompsett for the introductory speech and the rest of his team at ProShare for hosting such a great reunion!

If you weren’t able to be there don’t worry, as we’ve rounded up a list of all the well-deserved winners from the night here.

There’s more details available in the Winners Book! We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate not just those who won on the night, but everyone who made the shortlist for each category too. With such a diverse range of submissions, the judges had a tough call making their final decisions. And with 2021 undoubtedly another tough year for all those working in the share plan industry, every awards entry told a story of achievement and success in challenging times.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s awards and all the achievements to be recognised… but for now, the Eximia team members who attended are still recovering, as Jo Caulfield aptly predicted on the night!
