Jul 26, 2017 by Spark Energy
Spark, the Borders-based multi-utility provider to the lettings industry, has been shortlisted for The Lloyds Bank Mid-Market Business of the Year for the 2017 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.
The category recognises companies which have maintained consistent growth, driven by an engaged workforce under effective leadership. Judges also praised entries providing evidence of continual innovation while demonstrating a firm understanding of their customer base.
Spark CEO, Chris Gauld, said: “This is a tremendous achievement and I’m immensely proud of everyone who has contributed to Spark’s growth. The company is expanding rapidly and our people are at the heart of what we do. The majority of our workforce comes from the Borders and through initiatives like our Academy we’re investing in Spark’s future by investing in our people.
“I’m ambitious for our future as a multi-utility provider and I’m determined that we drive the business forward in the next few years. To allow us to achieve this it is vitally important we continue to demonstrate to our customers, their landlords and our partners why we are the best supplier for them. This means saving time and hassle for our partners while providing our customers with excellent service and lower prices.”
The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories. They will now prepare for live presentations to an expert judging panel who will decide the overall winners.
Continuing the celebration of Best of British Ambition, this year’s prestigious award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 14th November 2017, at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, where the winners will be revealed.
Tom Broughton, Group Brand Director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards said: “Given the economic uncertainty over the past year, it is inspiring more than ever to see British businesses prosper. Through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, this year’s selected finalists demonstrate exceptional quality and diversity across a range of business sectors within the UK. We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
