Winners revealed at West Midlands Business Masters 2020

In a West Midlands Business Masters Awards ceremony like no other, the Class of 2020 were crowned this evening in a virtual event hosted by’s joint managing director Alex Turner.

This year’s Ambassador of the Year Award went to Rob Groves, senior project director at Argent – the company in charge of developing the huge Paradise scheme in Birmingham city centre.

Alex Turner said: “We’d like to thank the West Midlands businesses for the support we’ve received since March. What we’ve noticed is a real sense of community and we’re sure that will continue when we see you face to face in 2021.”

Rob Groves added: “”I’d like to thank everyone for this award. I’m gobsmacked. We are in immensely challening times but seeing everyone’s faces when we open buildings is fantastic.

“Seeing and feeling our building at Paradise makes me very proud. We’ve got a great team in Birmingham and we’ve been through some hurdles, but it’s only through their passion that we can do something like Paradise.”
