North West Business Masters shortlist revealed

The shortlist has been announced for the 2017 North West Business Masters.

A record number of entries were whittled down by the judging panel with 37 companies making the shortlist.

Judges were particularly struck by the broad range of sectors covered by the businesses that entered this year’s awards as well as their geographical spread across the region. editor Joanne Birtwistle said: “It was a tough judging session, with the quality and volume of entries making it difficult to narrow down to a shortlist. In every category there were businesses that would have made the shortlist in previous years that have missed out.

“The shortlisted businesses gave compelling reasons to be chosen, demonstrating growth, innovation and a passion for what they do.”

The winners will be announced at the 2017 awards dinner on Thursday, April 6 at The Midland Hotel, Manchester.’s Business Masters is fast becoming one of the key dinners in the region’s business calendar.

This black-tie dinner attracts key influencers, decision makers and business owners from across the region.
