In recognition of the many family businesses which form a key part of both the East and West Midlands economies, we are delighted to be sponsoring the Midlands Family Business Awards 2016.
Organised by Nottingham based family business The Wilson Organisation, the awards are now in their seventh year. They are firmly established as one of the leading Awards for family businesses, with Streets being the lead sponsor for a new category for 2016, the People’s Choice.
In contrast to other award categories the People’s Choice Award gives the opportunity for followers, customers, clients, employees and business acquaintances to vote for their family business of choice from amongst the 31 finalists. These include The Petwood Hotel, Elite Fish and Chips, Ramsden International, Orderwise, A1 Flue Systems and Ballard Removals.
For details of all of the finalists and to vote for your Midlands Family Business of the Year please click here.
The public vote opens today (Monday 3rd October) and will run until Monday 31st October, with the winner being announced at the Awards ceremony on Thursday 17th November at the University of Birmingham. You can follow the story and news as it happens on twitter by following @FamilyBizAwards and using #peopleschoice.
Commenting on Streets’ support and involvement James Pinchbeck, the firm’s Marketing Partner, said: “We are especially pleased to be supporting the Midlands Family Business Awards 2016; as a firm we have looked after many family businesses often for many generations.
“Our commitment to these businesses and our understanding of their unique and often challenging needs is reflected through events like this and also through the development of our Family Business Forum.”
