Family Business United (‘FBU’) is delighted to confirm that Joanne Gualda has joined the judging panel for the Family Business of the Year Awards 2022.
As Paul continues, “We are delighted to welcome Joanne to the judging panel. Joanne brings her experience of working with the family at Bagnalls for over 20 years. As a long standing family business, they have over 145 years’ experience of delivering high levels of customer service. Their investment in people and commitment to being a responsible company means they meet the needs of a wide range of customers from historic properties through to utilities, providing services from painting and decorating to industrial coatings. Joanne is well versed in all things family business, a business that has previously triumphed in these awards as Supreme Champion Family Business of the Year and we are delighted that Joanne is able to join us as a judge this year.”
As Joanne adds, “I feel honoured to be a judge for these awards. I have worked in a family business for 22 years and know the importance that family businesses bring to the economy, not only as employers but also in innovation and sustainability. It is vital that we celebrate family businesses across the UK, for their commitment to people, driving skills and for their investment in the future. I look forward to seeing the breadth and scope of entries and wish every company that enters the best of luck.”
