The director of Brighouse PR and communications agency Faith PR has been nominated for Man of the Year in the International Women’s Day Awards 2015.

Carl Hopkins has been recognised in the annual awards ceremony for his role in helping Faith PR more than treble its turnover, as well as his role in supporting enterprise in the UK.

A marketer and business entrepreneur, Carl joined Faith PR in August 2013 as commercial director.

The business was founded in 2007 by Carl’s wife Stefanie Hopkins, who nominated him for the award.

Speaking about being shortlisted, he said: “I am thrilled to have made it to the final of the ‘Man of the Year’ category in the International Women’s Day Awards. As well as recognising the work of some of the north’s most successful business people, the not-for-profit event raises much-needed funds to support women and young people across the country, which I whole-heartedly support.”

Carl has more than 30 years’ experience in design, marketing, advertising and branding, as well as business ownership.
