33 businesses honoured as 2015 Business Masters shortlist announced

THE achievements of some of the most successful and innovative businesses in Yorkshire will be celebrated at TheBusinessDesk.com’s Business Masters after the shortlist was announced.

33 different businesses appear on the shortlist for the 10 awards published today, with the Ambassador award shortlist to be released shortly.

The winners of the 2015 Business Masters will be announced at a black-tie dinner at The Queens Hotel, Leeds, on Thursday, February 26.

Alex Turner, TheBusinessDesk.com Editor and chairman of the judging panel, said: “I would like to thank all of the companies who entered and each of the judges for their time and efforts.

“There were dozens of strong entries, which although made the judges’ task particularly difficult, was brilliant to see.

“The shortlisted companies come from a broad range of sectors and from across the county, highlighting the diversity and depth which exists and is flourishing.

Independent judges convened this week to consider the record number of entries, with a lively and detailed session eventually filtering the entries down to the shortlist, which is published below.

The judges were stockbroker Keith Loudon, the Redmayne-Bentley senior partner who took home the Yorkshire Ambassador award at TheBusinessDesk.com’s Masters in 2013, sales and marketing director of 2013 Exporter winner Premier Farnell, the deputy agent for the Bank of England for Yorkshire and the Humber, Will Holman, UKTI regional director for Yorkshire and Humber Mark Robson, and Daniel Gill from Dine Events, a previous winner of the Yorkshire Pride category.
