This award is the highest accolade in the Director of the Year Awards, recognising the personal imprint of the UK's most high-profile leaders on the culture and success of their organisation through outstanding professionalism and the implementation of best practice in governance and leadership.
Dr Palmer was presented with the award in recognition of the successful implementation of a new governance structure, which he established on joining Aston Martin Lagonda in 2014.

Dr Palmer said: '2018 has been a truly historic year for Aston Martin Lagonda, becoming the only truly British car company listed on the LSE, we are the standard-bearer for the UK. Good governance and embedding an ethical approach to business is an incredibly important part of the Second Century Plan, with the vision 'to be the great British car company that creates the most beautiful automotive art in the world'. This award further demonstrates the success of our transformation plan.
'All of our achievements are a testament to the extraordinary skill, professionalism and dedication of our workforce, who continue to demonstrate pride and trust in the Aston Martin brand which spreads out to our customers, our racing teams, our dealers and our loyal fans, and I dedicate this award to them.'
