Nick Bish, founder of the ALMR Ops Awards, said: "The Operations Managers Awards are not simply a competition, they provide real personal development for the individuals and a boost for the industry as a whole. The finalists have undergone a rigorous judging process, a challenging entry paper, psychometric profiling, field assessment on a routine working day and lastly the tough questioning from three panels of industry leaders.

"The Operations Managers Awards confirm the importance of ops managers in general and shine a light on the best of the best amongst them. I am delighted that to report that each and every year the bar gets higher and the standard of entries match and exceeds our expectations. 2014 was one of the tightest marking yet, suggesting that the leadership of our pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants is in good hands.

"And today, Menesh and Darren are the brilliant winners of these prestigious awards. They have shown outstanding management abilities and exceptional standards of professionalism throughout and I am certain they both are destined for senior roles within the industry."
