Family Business Of The Week

11th December 2015 Paul Andrews

Weekly recognition of fantastic family firms that have done something special!

Family Business United is delighted to champion the family business sector and announce a new campaign that celebrates a great family business ambassador each week.

As Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of FBU explains, "We are constatnly seeking ways to give recognition to the famaily business sector and this simple initiative will do just that.  We want to recognise the contribution made by family firms of all shapes and sizes and will select the winners based on what they have done, something that deserves to be celebrated, and help us in our cause to champion family firms for all that they do."

Each week, the team at FBU identify one family firm in the UK and one from around the world that has achieved something special and awards them the title of Family Business of the Week.  A social media driven campaign, this will help to draw attention to the contribution that family firms make to the global economy.

If you would like to nominate a family firm that has done something special and who you feel is worthy of our Family Business of the week title please let us know using the contact us form and we will be in touch.
