Last night marked the finals of the fourth Leicester Mercury Business Awards 2016, attended by hundreds of Leicestershire’s business elite. The awards celebrate success, recognise achievement, and highlight the innovative people and companies in Leicestershire who are putting the region on the map by boosting the economy, whilst making a positive contribution to the local community.
Ian Mattioli, Chief Executive Officer of Mattioli Woods, scooped a surprise special recognition: the 25 Years of Business Excellence Award.
“Mattioli Woods plc was proud to sponsor the Leicester Mercury Business Awards. What a great showcase of the region’s business talent! We saw some inspirational businesses and entrepreneurs who are truly the backbone of the local economy.”
“Furthermore, we are absolutely thrilled and humbled to have been awarded the 25 Years of Business Excellence Award. It’s great knowing that for the last 25 years the business Bob and I created has grown its people, revenue, and profit and is always providing great client outcomes.
“I have been lucky to surround myself with great people; my family and friends, my clients, our suppliers, and the 520 employees who are now my second family.
“I hope we can all do great business for another 25 years!”
Mattioli Woods sponsored the New Business of the Year award, which recognises the region’s brightest new business. Payment Assist took home the award, after Mattioli Woods judges analysed business plans, achievements to date, and potential for growth within the next few years.
