Winners of the prestigious awards will be announced at TheBusinessDesk.com’s black-tie awards dinner on Thursday March 26 at The Queens Hotel, Leeds. Tickets for the awards can be booked here.

The shortlist was selected by an independent judging panel comprising of senior leaders Mark Robson, head of UK regions – Yorkshire and Humber at The Department for International Trade; Beckie Hart, regional director, Yorkshire and the Humber CBI; Diane Cheesebrough, non-executive director, various; Kishor Tailor, chief executive, Humber LEP and Ben Ormsby, Yorkshire editor of TheBusinessDesk.com.

Ben Ormsby said: “We were overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of entries for this year’s awards. The judges had some very tough decisions to make over the shortlist, as the competition was extremely high.

“This year’s shortlist features a variety of interesting businesses, of different sizes, who are focused on ensuring success for their business, as well as supporting their employees, the regional economy and the planet, with sustainability being highlighted in a number of entries.

“The achievements of all those shortlisted should not be underplayed as it takes a lot of time, hard work  and entrepreneurial spirit – especially when we look at the economic backdrop of the last 12 months – to achieve what these businesses have.

“I’d like to thank all of our judges for giving their time. Congratulations to all of those shortlisted, we are very much looking forward to celebrating the region’s business achievements in March.”
