Representatives of H2O Hygiene Ltd will now meet with the Awards’ independent judging panel, which is led by a leading family business individual, supported by a sponsor representative, an industry expert and representative from the Midlands Family Business Awards team.
The company is also automatically entered into the People’s Choice Award, sponsored by Streets Chartered Accountants. The Winner and Highly Commended of this special award are decided solely by the number of votes from the public, and votes can be made online at www.familybusinessawards.co.uk from the 1st to 31st October 2018.
The winners of the Awards’ ten categories remain a tightly kept secret until the Awards ceremony and black-tie dinner, which takes place on Thursday 22nd November 2018 at Leicester’s Athena, and will be attended by more than 300 guests, including representatives from H2O Hygiene Ltd.
Commenting on being named a finalist in the Awards, Tom Davenport, Managing Director, said, “We are all really overwhelmed with receiving the news that we are finalists for another award. We started our business with a vision of success and excellence, so it’s really humbling to see our vision become a reality in such a short space of time. Our ‘work family’, internally branded #TeamH2O, work really hard and I’m so proud that our dedication and levels of service are being recognised in what still feels like our honeymoon phase of business.”
Now in their ninth year, the not-for-profit Midlands Family Business Awards are backed and run by The Wilson Organisation. The firm’s MD Charlotte Perkins, the third generation of the family to lead the business alongside her sister Annabel Prow, says:
“The Awards are the Midlands’ only independent initiative to recognise the work, success, innovations and achievements of family businesses. Family businesses are the backbone of the British economy, with two in every three of UK businesses being family owned. They generate over a quarter of UK GDP and employ around 12.2 million.”
“Our Awards strive to shine a light on this incredible contribution, and the great work, innovation and successes of family businesses and their people here in the Midlands.”
“Each of this year’s entrants demonstrate the exceptional pedigree of the family businesses in the Midlands and the sector’s vital contribution to the region’s economy. We wish H2O Hygiene Ltd and all this year’s finalists the very best when they meet the judges in the final round.”
