On Thursday 9th September, SoGlos held their inaugural Business Awards at Weston Aviation’s hangar at Gloucestershire Airport where E G Carter & Co Ltd won two awards from the evening.

The process saw 421 nominations from 192 different businesses whittled down to 17 winners.

E G Carter & Co Ltd were delighted to take home not one, but two awards, the Family Business and Business of the year Awards. Representing E G Carter & Co Ltd was Sam Carter, Director and Thomas Jones, Associate Director at the Company. Sam said “We are delighted to win these awards, but this is testament to our team. They are the business. We would like to thank our employees, clients and friends who have all been on this journey with us. Thank you!”

James Fyrne, managing director and co-founder of SoGlos, said: ‘SGGBA was the celebration of Gloucestershire’s business community we dreamt of and so much more. We have been taken aback by the support everyone has shown from the off – from our prestigious sponsors to the number of entries we have received from fantastic businesses across the county.’

Michelle Fyrne, group editor and co-founder of SoGlos, said: ‘It was such a joy to be able to gather together again, and a real pleasure to be able to recognise and celebrate so many diverse businesses and amazing individuals and teams that help make this county so very special.’

Headline sponsors GFirst LEP and The Growth Hub made the event possible, with a host of category sponsors coming together not just to support the awards, but create the judging panel which chose the final winners.

The unique evening was made extra special by partners including Oasis Events, SLX, Neptune Rum, Wild Pizza Co., Fluffy Puffin and Richard Parsons, the Gloucestershire Magician.
