Cheshire based Fintech and alternative banking solution, Suits Me® is delighted to announce that their CEO, Matthew Sanders, has been acknowledged by the Great British Entrepreneur Awards as a North West finalist in the Scale-Up Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
(Tuesday. 6th July 2021, Cheshire, UK) The Great British Entrepreneur Awards, founded in 2013 recognises entrepreneurs throughout the United Kingdom, admiring the hard work that they put into their businesses. The awards also acknowledge the inspiring stories of the entrepreneurs.
The award has previously celebrated many exceptional entrepreneurs, some of which have gone on to become household names. Previous winners include the founders of Tangle Teezer and the LAD Bible. Further to this, Steven Bartlett won the 2017 Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and has now successfully become the youngest ever Dragon on BBC’s Dragons’ Den.
Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, Francesca James, explained: “Creating the shortlist out of so many wonderful applications were incredibly tough, so I don’t envy the judges who will now decide the regional winners. Everyone who has been shortlisted should be incredibly proud and we’re thrilled to be able to showcase their achievements.”
This year the awards had over 4,800 entrants nationally – the most that they have ever had, making it an exceptional achievement for all the finalists to have been shortlisted. Although coronavirus has made life a little uncertain over the past 18 months, it is pleasant to see that both businesses and entrepreneurs are still being recognised for all their hard work.
The Great British Entrepreneur Awards regional finals are due to be held live in person in September and Matthew will be up against Jack Sutcliffe & Simon Hobson from Powersheds and Martin Blythe at Searchability to take home the Scale-Up Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
Matthew Sanders, CEO said: “I am honoured to be recognised as one of the North West finalists at this year’s Great British Entrepreneur Awards. As a company, Suits Me® constantly strive to ensure that we are able to provide the best service to our account holders. Many thanks to all at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards for thinking so highly of me. I am looking forward to the final and wish the best of luck to all of the finalists.”
