Friday 28th September saw Samuel Knight compete for the local North East Scale up Business of the year award sponsored by the Entrepreneurs Forum.
Our short listed category was one of the hardest category’s the EF judges had seen in a long time. We were up against Pink Boutique, Pacifica Group and Flame Heating Group. These businesses are considered as some of the best businesses in the North East so to be shortlisted was an honour but to be a finalised just shows how far as a company we’ve came in such a short space of time.
Some of the region’s most credible entrepreneurs, business owners and CEOs attended the event with guest speaker Benedict Allen. Unfortunately it wasn’t our night with the award going to Pacifica Group who are a well-established home service provider. Pacifica employ 485 staff locally who attend over 230,000 service calls per annum. The business has grown exponentially over the last 15 years and by all accounts fully deserved this prestigious award.
Our CEO Steven Rawlingson commented saying. "What a great evening attended by the region's leading business owners and entrepreneurs. For Samuel Knight to be a finalist against the short listed companies is a great honour and a testament to all our staff and their hard work over the years" "furthermore he also stated that “Samuel Knight are finalists for several other UK prestigious awards those being":
- Elite London Stock Exchange Business of the Year Award
- Small to Medium Sized Business of the Year Award
It's safe to say that Samuel Knight is definitely the company to watch throughout 2019 as we continue to raise the bar with what can be achieved through hard work, determination, and perseverance.
