Today, John Henry Group has been shortlisted for the Mid-Market Business of the Year Award for the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. John Henry Group, which has its head office in Cambridge, designs, supports and builds all-scale infrastructure footprints across the United Kingdom across telecoms, highways civil engineering and the power sectors.
John Henry Group Commercial Director, David Scott, said: “We are delighted to have been confirmed as a finalist for the Mid-Market Business of the Year Award.
“This has been an incredible journey of growth over the last few years and to be part of the UK’s broadband infrastructure programme has been exciting for all the team involved at John Henry Group.”
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.
Described as “the Oscars of great British business” by David Cameron, former Prime Minister, this year’s prestigious award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 15th November, at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, where the winners will be revealed.
For the first time, RT Hon Conor McGinn MP recently hosted a reception for the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards at the House of Commons. This enabled finalists to meet fellow entrants, the National Business Awards Advisory Board members, judges (who they will present to in September) and sponsors of each category.
Tom Broughton, Group Brand Director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards said: “Due to the high number of entries for this years’ awards, narrowing the entries down to 140 finalists was a difficult task. But through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, the 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.”
