UK Private Business Awards 2017: International Business of the Year, sponsored by UBS

04 September 2017

The UK Private Business Awards 2017: International Business of the Year are:

  • Cennox, Childrensalon
  • Cosworth Group Holdings
  • Green Man Gaming
  • Insights Learning & Development
  • Misguided 

The shortlist for the seventh annual Private Business Awards, sponsored by PwC, demonstrates the private business sector’s strength across UK regions and industries. Finalists include fashion, food, financial services and healthcare companies amongst many others, selected from hundreds of nominees.

We were looking for an international business with credible development plans in place to build on its success. The company should operate across borders and could be in any industry sector, but likely to be gaining market share due to strong international growth from a great product or service.

The awards were set up in 2011 to celebrate the best in the private business sector and to underline its importance to the UK economy. The 6 companies shortlisted in this category employ more than 2,000 people and have a combined turnover of £355 million. 

Matthew Barrett, UBS Switzerland AG said:

''UBS provides financial advice and solutions to wealthy, institutional and corporate clients worldwide. We are proud to sponsor this award and support private businesses in the UK with an international focus. The calibre of those shortlisted for this award was exceptionally high and a very good barometer for UK exporters as a whole''

The winners of this year’s awards will be announced on 14 September 2017 at the gala awards at The Brewery, London. Best of luck to all of the shortlist.
