2017 Shortlist


“The UK Private Business Awards are a fantastic opportunity
to take stock and celebrate the talent and success right across
the private business sector. 

The ambition of entrepreneurs and their teams makes this
a crucial part of our economy, particularly in an uncertain
economic environment. Passion and innovation isn’t confined
to a specific region or industry and this year the finalists are
from every part of the UK, 
and from industries as diverse
as fashion, construction and financial services.” 

Brian Henderson
Partner, PwC
