Richard Alvin, awards director, Business Champion Awards, said: ‘The last two years have been some of the toughest for many businesses in living times. And the courage, strategic nous and tenacity we have seen are some of the many reasons behind why these awards exist.
‘They are designed to celebrate the champions of British business in quite extraordinary times.
‘Every business winner and shortlisted company demonstrated huge amounts of creativity and strength, and whether they went home with a gong or not, they should all be incredibly proud of their achievements.’
The awards are supported by a stellar judging panel that includes a range of UK business leaders including Phil Jones MBE, MD of Brother UK; Alex Robson, founder of Soho Gin, and Charlie Mullins OBE, who has just exited Pimlico Plumbers in a £150m deal.
Richard Alvin, awards director, Business Champion Awards, added: ‘In an unprecedented time for businesses, up and down the country, we’ve seen an incredible amount of resilience.
‘We are a nation of proud business owners and the last two years has proved more than ever that whatever is thrown at British business we can respond.’
