Surinder Arora wins Leadership and Diversity Award.
Arora – the Ickenham nominee at the prestigious GG2 Leadership and Diversity Awards – has won ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’.
He began his working life with British Airways, when he saw the chance to do something different. He started off running a bed and breakfast in 1993 and now owns a chain of international hotels, including the Arora Hotel near Heathrow.
Kalpesh Solanki, group managing director of the Asian media and marketing group behind the awards, said: “The award winners are an inspiration to us all. Their achievements are hugely commendable and provide a spur to others.
“The GG2 Leadership & Diversity Awards show how far Britain has come. They also reflect the huge talent contained within Britain’s ethnic communities and should serve as a powerful reminder to many organisations that they cannot afford to overlook ethnic talent and ability.”
