Published January 22, 2016
Neill & Brown have been shortlisted in the Family Business of the Year Awards 2016 for the Yorkshire region.
The Family Business of the Year Awards are organised by Family Business United, the award-winning magazine and resource centre that champions and celebrates the family business sector. Now in their fourth year, these awards recognise the diversity, strength and depth of family firms across the UK and seek to highlight the contribution that family firms make to the UK economy.
Open to family firms of all generations, sizes and sectors, these awards really do recognise some outstanding family firms and really help to put family businesses on the map.
As Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United explains, “We are delighted to be able to pull together such a vibrant bunch of family businesses, some that have succeeded for numerous generations and continue to thrive, and others that are relatively young but have great values at the heart of what they do. Any one of those shortlisted would make worthy winners and ambassadors for the sector.”
Peter Brown, CEO and 3rd generation Brown, says, “As a family business that celebrates its centenary next year during the 2017 City of Culture celebrations, Neill & Brown are pleased to have been shortlisted for the Family Business Awards for 2016.
“Neill & Brown continue to offer competitive logistics solutions in a demanding market and continues its focus on service.
Winning this prestigious award would affirm our company’s family values whilst highlighting those benefits to our customers.
“People are important to us; for our team this is more than just a job and they happy to go that extra mile. These awards show that there is still a need for the strength of the family business and we are a good example of that.”
The results are determined through a combination of a judging panel and an online vote with all firms eligible for the People’s Choice Award which is a national award that is determined solely by public vote.
