Shortlist For Northern Family Business Of The Year Announced

The Family Business of the Year Awards were created in 2012 to celebrate the UK family business sector, to recognise the diversity of family firms across the country and to celebrate the contribution that they make.

These prestigious awards are now in their eleventh year and have become an integral part of the family business calendar #FBOTY2023

We are delighted to announce the shortlisted family firms for the Northern region.  One of these family firms is going to take the regional title in due course.

As Paul Andrews, founder of Family Business United, the awards’ organisers adds, “Each year we are amazed at the nominations received and there are always some real gems that are fabulous ambassadors for the family business sector. The entries come from all over the UK and this year in particular, given the ongoing uncertainty and business challenges caused by the global pandemic and the general trading climate, we are delighted by the number of entries, and the diverse sectors that they represent too.”

“I have said it before but family firms really are the backbone of the UK economy and across the UK they will be vital as the economy recovers from the events of the past few years. We look forward to finding out more about the family firms shortlisted for these awards and crowning some great winners in due course.”

“The awards culminate in a ceremony taking place in June with awards for various categories, sectors and regions.  We look forward to crowning the 2022 winners of the Northern Family Business of the year in due course.”

In addition to the Northern Family Business of the Year Award which is determined solely by the judges, votes are now open for the People’s Choice to determine the publics favourite. You can vote for your favourite from our Northern finalists here:
