"I am overwhelmed and very humbled by the recognition I have received as all I have ever tried to do is build a successful business but also put back into the community," Mark Esho, MD.

Congratulations to Mark Esho who has won the award for 'Entrepreneurs of Excellence in the category 'Race' at this year’s National Diversity Awards. Mark faced some stiff competition to win the award, having been initially short listed from thousands of nominations received for the awards this year.

Mark won this award for two main reasons: the substantial amount of effort and dedication he has put into his own business Easy Internet Services & Solutions to make it a success since 2000, initially armed only with his personal credit cards. He also gives back into the community in a variety of ways, such as working with the Leicester African Caribbean Business Association, The African Caribbean Citizens Forum and the Leicester Cobras wheelchair basketball club, of which he was recently announced a sponsor.

The National Diversity Awards 2012, supported by headline sponsor, Microsoft, was hosted by Brian Dowling at Manchester’s Midland Hotel on the 21st September. The night was a glittering success with appearances from Paralympic heroes Jody Cundy and Claire Hardy, BBC journalist and model Amal Fashanu, the stars of ‘My Transsexual Summer and CBeebies presenter Cerrie Burnell.’

Spectacular performances also took place from singing sensation Ruth Brown from ‘The Voice’ and MOBO unsung award winner Esco Williams. The L project also performed their moving LGBT anti bullying charity single ‘It does get better’. The glittering event attracted a wide range of sponsors from the likes of Northumbrian Water, The Financial Ombudsman Service and Manchester City Council.

After generating so much interest and support in its first year, the awards are sure to go from strength to strength with next year’s event being held in Leeds.
