Merle Hall Wins International Director of the Year 2017


Merle Hall impressed the judges at the Institute of Directors South West Director of the Year Awards last week, and took the title of International Director of the year. With 3 UK offices, two based in Bristol,  Kinneir Dufort operates on a global level.  Our work spans across Consumer, Medical and Industrial sectors, delivering value through multiple areas of expertise including Innovation, Design, Engineering and Technology. The integration of these teams is one of the leading contributors for the success of the business.

It has been a successful year; Merle recently undertook a management buyout of the business, bringing a fresh energy to the firm which now leads business in eight international markets. Judges commented particularly on Kinneir Dufort’s commitment to personal and professional development for her team.   

I’m extremely proud on behalf of Kinneir Dufort, as this award recognises our commitment as a business to creating a superlative working environment for our outstanding and inspirational team. As a consultancy, we recognise we are as good as our team and consequently focus upon ensuring that means best in class”
