Awards show en­dur­ing strength of fam­ily

The Herald Business - - News Digest -

THIS month’s in­au­gu­ral Her­ald Fam­ily Busi­ness Awards demon­strated how a strong fo­cus can help a firm thrive even when the eco­nomic cli­mate is harsh.

Ho­tel op­er­a­tor Auchran­nie Leisure was a dou­ble win­ner at the black-tie event, run in as­so­ci­a­tion with Busi­ness Gate­way and sup­ported by the Scot­tish Fam­ily Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion, RBS, Craig Cor­po­rate and the Grand Cen­tral Ho­tel. The Arran com­pany tri­umphed in the ru­ral fam­ily busi­ness and cus­tomer ser­vice ex­cel­lence cat­e­gories. An­other firm to catch the judges’ eye in more than one area was Kelso coun­try cloth­ing spe­cial­ist A Hume (Out­fit­ters) which picked up fastest-grow­ing fam­ily busi­ness and the small/medium fam­ily busi­ness of the year.

In next month’s Busi­ness Her­ald we will bring you a full list­ing of win­ners plus pic­tures from the event, which at­tracted 200 at­ten­dees.
