Businesses hailed as Black Country Chamber Awards finalists
More than two dozen businesses have been unveiled as finalists of the annual Black Country Chamber awards.
For the first time, the Black Country's biggest business organisation made the announcement at a high profile event hosted by Wolverhampton's Casino 36.
The Black Country Chamber of Commerce Awards is an annual celebration that was established five years ago. Since that time, the awards have recognised more than 150 Black Country individuals and businesses for their achievements.
There are 10 categories in the awards this year and the winners will be revealed at the prestigious annual awards celebration on Friday, November 9, at Wolverhampton Racecourse.
The three finalists in each category - selected by a panel of judges made up of business professionals from a range of leading Black Country organisations – were announced at the event by chief executive of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, Corin Crane. He said: “The 10 categories were created to reflect the real strength and breadth of the colourful Black Country business community and it has been a very difficult process for the judges as the quality of the applications has been first rate.
“I would like to thank everyone who has entered and I particularly congratulate those that have been shortlisted. I now look forward to what promises to be a very exciting and entertaining evening where we will find out the overall winner in each category.”
The headline sponsor of this year's awards event is business consultancy, Neon Tiger. Managing director Dawn Owen said: “Neon Tiger is delighted to be part of the Black Country Chamber awards this year. As a consultancy with over 35 years’ experience in business, it’s great to see so many success stories in our area.
“The awards evening on November 9 will be a fabulous occasion where we can celebrate the outstanding individuals that live, work and do business in this fantastic region.”
