Biz4Biz, the organisation that provides a coherent voice for businesses in Hertfordshire has announced the winners of the biz4Biz Awards 2017.
Funeral directors JJ Burgess & Sons were named ‘Best Family Business’. The award, which is sponsored by Richmond House Financial Services Limited, recognises a commercial organisation in which decision-making is influenced by multiple generations of a family (blood-line or marriage) and who are closely aligned with the company through leadership or ownership.
A total of 12 awards were presented at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel in Herts by the Rt Hon Michael Portillo.
The biz4Biz Awards are impartial, independent awards that can be won by anyone involved in a business in Hertfordshire. The aim of the biz4Biz Awards is to seek out examples of being the best at what all the businesses in Herts do.
“We are delighted with the way the evening went and the feedback already has been overwhelming,” said Adrian Hawkins, chairman of biz4Biz.
“There is room in the calendar for these awards and the time is right for biz4Biz to show that we are not only there to speak up on behalf of businesses in Herts but also that we are there to recognise and reward all the great things that are being done”
The awards began with an online nomination and voting process in December 2016, this was followed by nominees from the top 20 then being invited to attend a judging day the following month before the announcement of the awards shortlist.
Commenting on the award winners Adrian said: “A look at the list of our finalists shows just what a tough task our judges had. There is so much that we can be proud of and our winners all showed that they just have the edge over their rivals and were able to turn good into excellent.”
