Fleet Al­liance awaits fi­nals count­down

The Herald Business - - News Digest -

GLAS­GOW-BASED Fleet Al­liance, an in­de­pen­dent fleet man­age­ment and leas­ing spe­cial­ist, is one of a hand­ful of Scot­tish com­pa­nies to be short­listed in the UK National Busi­ness Awards 2013, with the awards be­ing pre­sented at a cer­e­mony in Lon­don on Novem­ber 12.

The com­pany is un­der­stood to be the only Scot­tish firm to be a fi­nal­ist in two cat­e­gories – the Croner­spon­sored Em­ployer of the Year and the Cus­tomer Fo­cus Award.

The firm has this year al­ready been voted Best Place to Work in Scot­land, and was in the Top Five Places to Work in the UK. Head­quar­tered in Glas­gow city cen­tre, with of­fices across the UK, the com­pany was also a re­cent fi­nal­ist in the Scot­tish National Busi­ness awards.

Martin Brown, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Fleet Al­liance, said: “To be recog­nised at award cer­e­monies in Scot­land is a great hon­our. How­ever, to be short­listed in two cat­e­gories at th­ese UK Busi­ness Awards, which are open to ev­ery or­gan­i­sa­tion in the UK, is an achieve­ment in it­self.”

Dame Helen Alexan­der, chair of the National Busi­ness Awards judges, added: “The en­vi­ron­ment has been tough; th­ese are the firms lead­ing the way to growth. There’s a broad spec­trum of sec­tors rep­re­sented … re­flect­ing the di­ver­sity of Bri­tish busi­ness and the vi­tal­ity of our econ­omy.”
