2018 Sussex Business Awards Finalists Announced

The shortlist for the 30th annual Sussex Business Awards has been announced and hundreds of applicants have been whittled down to just fifty-one finalists. Engage Health Group is delighted to have been nominated for the Business in the Community Award.
Representatives from sixteen towns across the county make the shortlist and after a record-breaking number of nominations, judges had an enormously difficult task as the entries were of such a high standard.
The judging panel, chaired by Mike Herd, executive director of Sussex Innovation Centre, included representatives from Allied Irish Bank, HSBC, Mazars, Gatwick Airport, University of Sussex, Red7, Coffin Mew, Clearline Recruitment, CountyClean Group, Vantage Professional Risks, LMS Group and Rockinghorse.
Commenting on this year’s shortlist, Mike said: “Each year the standard of entries gets better and better and this year was no exception.
“This year’s finalists are a stimulating mix of established businesses and new entrepreneurial ventures with a common thread running through them all – resilience and determination to succeed. Congratulations to all the shortlist!”
Winners will be announced at The Grand Brighton on November 29th.
Over 500 of the county’s leading businesspeople are expected to attend giving guests the perfect opportunity to network with peers, celebrate with colleagues and find out those all-important results.
