Marcus Evans praised the Nutbourne team after the company was a winner in three categories at the Archant Thames Gateway Business Awards.
The awards - which are contested by entrepreneurs and companies from Essex, Kent and East London - saw Nutbourne recognised as the Small Business of the Year and Employer of the Year, as well as the prestigious Company of the Year.
Speaking after the event, Marcus said: “All of what we do is possible because of the brilliant team we have; all our success and achievements are down to them and their hard work, and these awards are recognition for that.
“When the company was established we wanted to be successful, to meet high standards and to provide an excellent service. We wanted it to be a place where people could thrive, be empowered and enjoy working.
“We feel like we’re achieving that, and so to receive the awards for Employer of the Year and Small Business of the Year is recognition for all the things we’re doing right, which makes us very proud.”
Further recognition of Nutbourne’s success came with the Company of the Year Award, an award chosen by judges from all the winning entries. It highlights a company that has excelled in all areas of business and has shown innovation within its field over the last 12 months.
“We are honoured and humbled to be handpicked by the judges, especially from a group of such excellent and worthy winners,” Marcus said.
“Nutbourne has grown significantly and steadily over the last five years and will continue to do so – to be recognised as Company of the Year during that time will be a milestone on the journey.
“I’d like to thank everyone involved for all their hard work in getting us where we are today.”
