At last week’s awards ceremony, Tusker was crowned winner of the prestigious Lloyds Bank Growing Business Award 2015.
The awards, created by Real Business Magazine and supported by the CBI, are the most established and respected national recognition of SME and entrepreneurial success.
Tusker has won Growing Business of the Year (large business category), which ‘recognises world class privately owned UK companies’. With a focus on high growth and high quality, the award acknowledges the importance of SMEs to the UK economy, creating wealth, taxes and thousands of new jobs.
Tusker received the award after being judged on several key criteria, including market leadership, consistent profitable growth and scalability of the business. The judges were also looking for evidence of a positive impact on industry, undeniable customer engagement and product and service innovation. As the winner, Tusker successfully demonstrated best practice in customer service, excellence in people management, workforce motivation, and a commitment to sustainability and the local community.
David Hosking, Chief Executive Officer for Tusker, comments: “In an award winning year this is definitely the most prestigious because it is national and open to all types of businesses. Previous winners are now household names. The things that we pride ourselves on: customer service, people management and our impact on the environment, were exactly what the judges were looking for so it’s satisfying to hear they feel we do these things exceptionally well.”
