The Courier Business Awards Announce Winners

The Courier Business Awards Announce Winners

The Courier Business Awards, in association with Henderson Loggie, has crowned local business winners in front of a sold out crowd at the Fairmont, St Andrews.

The awards, now in their third year, took place on Friday 27th November with over 570 guests enjoying an evening of entertainment and awards, hosted by Nick Hewer.

Awards were presented to a number of categories, including new awards for this year; Apprentice of the Year and Deal of the Year. A Local Matters category was also introduced this year, which was divided into four subcategories to celebrate the best local business in Perthshire, Fife, Dundee and Angus.

The Courier Editor Richard Neville said, “Despite the occasional hurdles that all economies face, the local business scene is thriving. We are seeing inward investment on the back of major infrastructure projects and our established local companies are showing they have the ability to move with the times.
“This year’s nominations contained so many inspiring stories of dedication, innovation and achievement making judging a truly difficult job.”

The 2015 judging panel was chaired by Clydesdale Bank Chairman Jim Pettigrew.
