James Howard, founder of Brighouse-based Yorkshire Payments, has won in the New Generation category at the BiYinspired awards.

This award recognises the most dynamic business owners under the age of 35 and was presented a host of other accolades at a special awards lunch at the Queens Hotel in Leeds.

James said: “We’ve got really big plans to develop Yorkshire Payments as a brand across Yorkshire and even further afield and it is always rewarding to feel your hard work and achievements are being recognised.

“I was up there with some impressive competition and it means a lot to our team.”

Yorkshire Payments, based at Thornhill Brigg Mills, recently relocated to accommodate its 15-strong team.
