Success-minded companies are moving into top gear for the 2016 version of the ever popular FSB Hertfordshire Business Awards.
Launched at Mercedes Benz Stevenage on Tuesday, February 9th the awards are this year being held against a backdrop of growing confidence in the strength of Hertfordshire’s economy.
“Hertfordshire is leading the way as the UK economy grows,” said Pam Charman, chairman of the Hertfordshire branch of the business group, the FSB.
“There will be plenty of success stories out there and we are sure companies and sole traders will respond to the opportunity offered by these awards in great numbers as they have done before.
“We must also thank our wide range of forward looking sponsors, without whom these awards simply would not happen.”
The headline sponsor this year is Clydesdale Bank. David Clarke, the bank’s Head of Centre at St Albans Business and Private Banking Centre, said: “Helping businesses grow and prosper is at the heart of what we do at Clydesdale Bank and we are proud to support these awards which showcase the incredible achievements of the top businesses across the county of Hertfordshire.
“The businesses recognised through these awards make a huge contribution to the economic vibrancy of our county through their desire to innovate and grow which is vital to job creation, skills development and long-term economic stability.
“We are genuinely excited at the prospect of reading and sharing in so many powerful stories about the achievements of Hertfordshire businesses over the next few months and also celebrating their successes at the awards ceremony in June.”
Andrew Gallacher, General Manager Hertford, and Group Sales Manager, Mercedes Benz, said: “We are thrilled to host the FSB Hertfordshire Awards launch and look forward to being involved over the coming months.”
