The Herald Scottish Family Business Awards in association with Business Gateway will recognise and reward family businesses of all sizes and all sectors in Scotland.
Many of Scotland’s biggest and best-known businesses have started out as family firms. Some of these big players have continued to grow under family ownership and management, and have become household names, while others have listed on the stock market and made it all the way to the FTSE-100 index.
Now in their third year the awards will continue to celebrate the success of the diverse, dynamic and innovative family business sector, and the contribution which these firms make to the communities in which they operate and to the wider economy.
Hugh Lightbody, Chief Officer at the Business Gateway National Unit said:
“Business Gateway works in every sector, with businesses at all stages of their life cycle, across the whole of Scotland, mirroring the make-up of Scotland’s important family business community. The awards celebrate some of Scotland’s best businesses and we would encourage every family business to enter the categories that best reflect their successes.”
“We are also delighted to sponsor the Fastest Growing Business award. Business Gateway assisted thousands of growth businesses throughout the last financial year and the current year is showing similar numbers coming to us for support to help them achieve their growth ambitions.”
