Family Business United is delighted to announce that The Plan Group is the winner of the London & South East People’s Choice Family Business of the Year Award 2016. As Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United (‘FBU’) explains,
“We were delighted to pull together such a vibrant bunch of family businesses for the 2016 FBOTY awards, some that have succeeded for numerous generations and continue to thrive, and others that are relatively young but have great values at the heart of what they do.”
“Plan Insurance undertook a proactive campaign to get the support of the broader community to vote for them in these awards. The public really supported them and not only did they triumph in the London & South East Award, they also finished ninth in the National People’s Choice category too. . They are a great British family firm and truly deserve all the plaudits that winning this award brings.”
Ryan Georgiades, Managing Director of Plan said,
“It goes to show just how much family businesses mean to the public. It demonstrates the power of social media – we had over 400 likes and retweets when we mentioned we’d been shortlisted!
I think that’s fairly unheard of, people don’t tend to engage with insurance brokers in their free time. If you give a high level of service your customers will value you. We owe a massive debt of gratitude to our hugely dedicated team.”
Penny Lovell, Head of Private Clients at Close Brothers Asset Management, one of the judges and the sponsors of the awards added,
“It is a privilege to support these awards and to find out more about the fantastic family firms that are the backbone of the UK economy. With Plan Insurance there is a clear essence of being a family business at their core which really makes them stand out. This is a great family firm and a deserved winner of the title, and clearly a great ambassador for the family business sector in the UK too.”
The Family Business of the Year Awards are organised by FBU, the award-winning magazine and resource centre that champions and celebrates the family business sector. Now in their fourth year, these awards recognise the diversity, strength and depth of family firms across the UK and seek to highlight the contribution that family firms make to the UK economy.
Open to family firms of all generations, sizes and sectors, these awards really do recognise some outstanding family firms and really help to put family businesses on the map. The People’s Choice awards are determined regionally by the public with an overall National People’s Choice Award too.
The awards process concluded at a Gala Reception and awards ceremony that took place in London at the prestigious May Fair Hotel in London on June 2 where all the winners were crowned.
