The Best Small Family Business award is sponsored by RSA.
Here are the shortlisted businesses in the 2013 Midlands Family Business Awards:
Open to family businesses with a turnover of up to £5million, the Best Small Family Business award recognises the large numbers of smaller family businesses that contribute to the Midlands economy and can demonstrate success across a broad range of measures. In addition to outline financial information the judges will be looking for brief information in the following areas:
- An introduction to your business and its history
- How the family values and family members influence the business
- The ownership structure and how decisions are made
- How you balance the interests of the family and the business
- The key qualities that make it a candidate for Best Small Family Business
- Future plans and aspirations
This award was won in 2012 by O'Keeffe Building Services, with Marshalls of Sutton on Trent and Mitchell Storage & Distribution highly commended.
