Clive Bawden has been confirmed as a judge at the finals of the 2019 Spectator magazine Economic Disruptor Awards.

The Spectator’s Economic Disruptor of the Year Awards 2019 is sponsored by Julius Baer.  The Awards celebrate innovative businesses throughout the UK that are disrupting their markets.  They also need to have the potential for rapid growth, nationally and internationally.

Bawden will be one of three judges, joining Mark Embley, regional manager for the Awards sponsor Julius Baer and Juliet Barratt, co-founder of the Grenade Sports Nutrition brand of ‘healthy snacks’, now a multimillion pound business.  They will be led by Martin Vander Weyer, business editor of the Spectator magazine.

“I am delighted to have been asked to join this elite group of judges” said Bawden.  “Particularly given the quality of the finalists in this category and the prestige and heritage of these awards” he continued.
