Launching The Essex Family Business Top 50

by Matthew Rowe

Family Business United (FBU) is delighted to announce the launch of a new campaign to identify The Essex Family Business Top 50 to provide an insight into individuals within the family business sector that are clearly making their mark.

The campaign seeks to identify those individuals that have made their mark over the years, creating and running successful family firms as a leader, those that have used their presence within their family business to make a difference to the local community in which they operate, individuals from the next generation who are already making their mark and individuals that represent the underlying essence of what family businesses are all about.

The campaign is being sponsored by Rickard Luckin and will culminate in recognition of the Top 50 in an online celebration of The Essex Family Business Top 50 with an event in the autumn to bring them together and recognise their achievements.

As Matthew Rowe, Head of Marketing at Rickard Luckin adds: “We’re really looking forward to continuing our partnership with FBU and determining The Essex Family Business Top 50. Having recently launched the Essex Family Business Hub and put together plans for the region’s Family Business Road Trip we’re thrilled to have the chance to identify 50 family business individuals and to once again celebrate the fantastic family owned businesses in Essex.”

As Paul Andrews, Founder & CEO of FBU concludes, “This is the latest campaign to showcase the significant contribution of the family business sector who do so much in terms of providing jobs, creating income, generating wealth and making a difference to local communities and it will be a pleasure to highlight a group of individuals across Essex who deserve recognition for their role in doing so. We look forward to working with Rickard Luckin on the campaign too.”

The campaign is free to enter so enter/nominate an individual today using the online form. Nominations close on 30 June after which the judges will deliberate and determine the final 50 for inclusion in the inaugural listing of The Essex Family Business Top 50.
