Yorkshire Business Masters Awards – winners announced

The Yorkshire Business Masters Awards hosted by the Business Desk, have announced this years winners!

We are delighted to see one of our AD:VENTURE clients scoop the Small Business Award, and to see Roger Marsh OBE receive the prestigious Ambassador award. Well deserved in our opinion!

Marsh, who is chair of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership and NP11, was chosen as this year’s Ambassador by an independent judging panel who felt his achievements during the last 12 months had boosted Yorkshire’s profile and helped to attract well-known firms and brands to the regional economy.

The award recognised Marsh’s outstanding contribution to the region and marked the instrumental part he has played in helping the region thrive.

Marsh said he felt humbled and proud but added that it was very much a team effort. “For me, all of what we do, the huge success we can see here tonight and the variety of businesses is key to our economic vitality.

“I am privileged to make the case for the city region and for the North – the North is the solution, not the problem.”

North Brewing Co, who we feature as a case study are celebrating winning the small business award – A fantastic achievement for a business that started up in 2015!

Kayley Worsley, Yorkshire editor at TheBusinessDesk.com, said: “It has been a fantastic evening celebrating Yorkshire business successes over the past 12 months; there was a real energy and excitement around the room and that was brilliant.
“Myself and the judging panel were impressed by the commitment, innovation and drive all shortlisted firms and winners demonstrated right across the region – in a wide variety of sectors. They proved how they are focused on remaining resilient in today’s tough trading environment.
“Despite the current backdrop, the fact that many Yorkshire businesses are remaining optimistic and have a real drive to grow and succeed is a true testament to their strength. Thanks to everybody who joined us this evening and we wish everyone every success for the coming 12 months”
