The Leatherhead & District Business Awards 2017 winners and runners-up were announced at a ceremony held on Tuesday 4 July at St John’s School, Leatherhead. More than fifty people gathered to watch the award winners receive their trophies and certificates from Clare Cowan of BBC Surrey.
Supported by headline sponsor ExxonMobil, the awards scheme has highlighted Leatherhead & District as the location of choice for successful companies. With excellent transport links and premises, the area is home to world-class corporates, retailers and innovative small enterprises. The Leatherhead Business Awards are designed to put the spotlight on the achievements of these companies and business leaders and to celebrate their success. Nominations were received across the six categories this year.
Joanne Rogers, Managing Director of Prowse & Co. who created the Awards said: “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the finalists and to thank the judges and sponsors along with all those who put forward nominations. The evening was a huge success with a great feel-good factor!”
Jackie Quinn, President of the Leatherhead & District Chamber of Commerce, said: “The Leatherhead Business Awards offer a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to demonstrate how great they really are. There were a huge number of entries this year so everyone who reached the finals as well as the winners, should be incredibly proud of their achievement. My business, Jackie Quinn Estate Agents, won Business of the Year award in 2011 and since then, business has doubled. I believe this is because winning this prestigious award gives you fantastic credibility and inspires all team members to do their very best.”
