Double winners return as 2018 Post Business Awards sponsor
THEY were double winners at the Birmingham Post Business Awards last year. Now Wesleyan – a financial services mutual which is one of Birmingham’s oldest businesses – is returning to our prestigious event as category sponsor.
Founded in 1841, the Wesleyan is proud to sponsor the Professional Services award at this year’s ceremony at the ICC on Thursday, November 1.
Last year the company scooped the top award – Company of the Year – as well as taking home the trophy for Contribution to the Community.
Wesleyan, like other category sponsors, is selecting a shortist for the award, which will be announced in October.
Craig Errington, Wesleyan Group chief executive, said: “As one of the city’s oldest companies, we have a long relationship with the professional services sector in Birmingham, which continues to grow and thrive.
“As previous winners in this category and, having gone on to win Company of the Year in 2017, we are keen to promote high levels of excellence within the services sector.”
Initially established to help workers save for sickness and funeral expenses, Wesleyan now provides tailored financial advice and products to select professional groups, notably GPs, hospital doctors, dentists, teachers and lawyers – and a range of commercial financial products for the organisations in which they are employed.
It has over 1,000 staff based in its head office in Birmingham city centre.
