Cennox win the award for 'Best Management Team' at the FastTrack 100 awards evening
During an event hosted by Sir Richard Branson, Cennox were proud winners of the Best Management Team Award, sponsored by BDO, announced during the 19th annual Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 awards, held at Sir Richard's family home in Oxfordshire.
The founders and directors of Britain’s 100 private companies with the fastest-growing sales were recognised during the event. Representing Cennox, Clive Nation Roy Dodd & Nick Cockett, were present to accept the award.
Sir Richard congratulated the companies on their success, and said that “many great British companies started off at Fast Track 100”, before adding “British entrepreneurs are what powers our nation”.
The Fast Track 100 annual conference and awards dinner celebrates the best of British entrepreneurship, bringing together the founders and directors of the UK’s private companies with the fastest-growing sales. Over the last three years they have grown their sales by an average of 65% a year to a total of £3.7bn, and employ 19,000 people, having added 13,500 jobs over the period.
The annual after-dinner charity auction benefitted young people in Britain through Virgin Strive’s support of the Big Change charitable trust and budding entrepreneurs at the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship in South Africa supported by Virgin Unite. The evening raised over £120,000 – taking the total raised by Fast Track 100 entrepreneurs over the last 11 years to £2.3m.
