We are delighted to announce that Jonathan Robb from Hawkshead Relish has been included within the inaugural Family Business United ‘Family Business Top 100,’ which recognises the exceptional contribution of individuals and their work within a family business.
Recognition in respect of:
- Sustainable Development
- Next Generation
Mark and Maria Whitehead MBE set up the Hawkshead Relish Company over 20 years ago. Having had plenty of peaks and troughs along the way the business is now better placed than ever before. An artisan producer of award-winning preserves based in the historic village of Hawkshead in the heart of the English Lake District, this is a family business looking to the future.
As a non-family member, Jonathan is bridging the gap between generations of the family as part of a broader succession process and is guiding the next generation to learn and gain sufficient experience to hand over the reigns to them when the time comes for him to step down.
Jonathan has gained the respect and loyalty of the whole workforce, enabling them to be the best they can whilst offering his full support, guidance and leadership.
As part of the next generation team driving the business forward, Jonathan is an integral part of the management team and fully deserves recognition for his role in the ongoing development of the business.
