Higginsons General Manager scoops award at North West Family Business Awards
The glittering awards ceremony, attracting over 190 entries from family businesses across the region took place inside the Concorde Hangar and events centre at Manchester Airport.
Mark was presented with his award by host, food writer and presenter Nigel Barden alongside sponsors, NXT Recruitment in front of a capacity crowd of over 400 people.
Sue Howorth, Founder and co-director of The Family Business Network and The North West Family Business Awards said: “This has been a fantastic event, which really has celebrated the great work family businesses do, enriching their communities and the country’s economy.
“It was a tough job for the judges as the standard of entries was so high. The support from the public who helped select the winners of the Employee of the Year was outstanding - we had over 3,350 votes for the Employee of the Year! Thank you to each person who took the time to cast their vote.”
Mark thanked his friends, colleagues and family live on stage after winning one of the big awards of the night. He commented, “I’m very honoured to win an award for simply doing my day to day job. I wanted to acknowledge the hard-working and talented team and family that I have supporting me – I couldn’t do it without them!”
Mark added, “Winning the award was a total shock as I genuinely didn’t expect it, although it is a great reward for the years of commitment to the business. It’s definitely one of the highlights of my career so far”.
“The Awards was a fantastic evening and I couldn’t think of a better venue for the awards night - it was great to have a tour on Concorde!”
Mark, along with the other winners will now go forward to the National Family Business Awards in London on 4 June. The North West Family Business Awards are organised by The Family Business Network, which offers support to family businesses of all sizes and sectors.
