Held at Hardwick Hall on 29th September, the finals celebrated the excellence of businesses across the North East following the three regional heats.
Throughout the evening, we gathered to commemorate the hardworking, talented businesses across the North East. Whilst waiting with bated breath for the final category, the coveted Company of the Year award.
Sponsored by Newcastle University, the award recognises outstanding performance by highly successful North East businesses throughout the year. Though we had formidable competition from fellow finalists Newcastle Building Society and eQuality Solutions, we were overcome with emotion when we were announced as the winner.
Words cannot comprehend how proud I am of the team. Our hard work and determination have paid off. This year has been monumental for the business, with many more exciting opportunities and announcements to come
