Dou­ble win­ners re­turn as 2018 Post Busi­ness Awards spon­sor

Birmingham Post - - BIRMINGHAM POST BUSINESS AWARDS 2018 - Fion­nu­ala Bourke Com­mer­cial Ed­i­tor

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.
