Dream Agility chief executive Elizabeth Clark has been confirmed as a judge at The Northern e-Commerce Awards (NECAs) 2016.
The NECAs, which are designed to celebrate the best in e-commerce and online retailing across the north, will be staged on 21 September at The Point, Emirates Old Trafford.
And Clark will join a range of other high-profile judges, including UK Fast chief executive Lawrence Jones MBE and Microsoft’s UK search director Aaron McGrath, in deciding the winners across 23 different award categories.
Clark said: “From big businesses to enterprising start-ups, the north is packed with thriving online retailers. The NECAs represent a brilliant opportunity to recognise and celebrate their achievements.
“We’re looking for the very best in websites, platforms, suppliers, and marketing, both from in-house teams and agencies, and I can’t wait to be involved in such a fantastic new event.
“Entries are open to all northern businesses and should highlight the success and talent across e-retailing and online business in the north.”
Clark won the FDM everywoman Start-up Founder of the Year award in 2014.
She also recently steered Dream Agility to more recognition, with Google acknowledging the company as one of the best agencies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa at a ceremony in Berlin last month.
Entries for the Northern e-Commerce Awards 2016 should be submitted by 17 June 2016.
