Around 400 of the city’s leading businesspeople gathered for the annual Brighton and Hove Business Awards ceremony held at Hilton Brighton Metropole on July 14th 2019. Celebrating thirteen years in 2018, the awards are the most sought-after accolade by organisations from every sector in Brighton and Hove.
This year saw a record-breaking number of nominations for each category. Judges had an enormously difficult task, as the entries were of such a high standard.
Entries were judged by an experienced panel of local and business experts including British Airways i360, NatWest, Churchill Square, DMH Stallard LLP, Green Growth Platform, Heart, Hilton Sharp & Clarke, Platinum Business Magazine, Quantuma LLP, Red7, Rockinghorse, Skerritts Wealth Management, Ten7Two Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce and University of Brighton.
David Sheppard, Chairman of Sussex Chamber of Commerce, took the role as Chair of Judges. David joined the Board of Sussex Enterprise in January 2013 and became Chairman in April 2015.
David commented: “It goes without saying that it is a huge honour to be the Chair of the 2018 Brighton and Hove Business Awards.
“Each year the standard of entries gets better and better and this year was no exception. This year’s finalists are a stimulating mix of established businesses and new entrepreneurial ventures with a common thread running through them all – resilience and determination to succeed.
“Congratulations to all the winners!”.
