In partnership with the Marriott Hotel Forest of Arden, every month we will be choosing one person who has made an outstanding contribution to business in the borough, to receive our prestigious award.
Nominees could be someone who has launched a new company, expanded and taken on more staff, or even a member of staff who has given extraordinary long service.
A winner will then be chosen and invited to an awards lunch at Marriott Hotel Forest of Arden, with leading members of Solihull’s business community, where they will be presented with a trophy.
Solihull News Editor Ross Crawford said: “We are launching the Business Person of the Month awards because we believe that there are too many unsung heroes in business, taking risks, creating wealth and jobs and keeping not only this borough but also the country moving forward.
“It’s about time they were recognised.”
At the end of the year, the monthly winners will then be invited back to an annual luncheon where one will be crowned Business Person of the Year.
Hotel general manager, Eamonn Thompson, said he was delighted to join the Solihull News in launching the monthly business awards.
“We have an extremely active and entrepreneurial community and our aim is to celebrate some of its success stories by recognising the hard work and effort put in by local firms and small businesses, as well as individuals,” he added.
Winners will be chosen from nominations and people featured in Solihull News business pages.
