Study Links People's Choice #FBOTY2016
8th June 2016 Paul Andrews
Study Links scooped the Yorkshire People’s Choice Award at the Family Business United ‘Family Business of the Year Awards 2016’ held in The May Fair Hotel in London on Thursday 2nd June.
Study Links was established in 1998 by the Fan family when they identified a need for a higher quality of support to be provided to international students choosing to study in the UK. The family have lead the company to become one of the leading guardianship and placement organisations for international students in the UK. Founders Angela and Eric Fan are still actively involved as Managing Directors, whist their daughter Ailie has taken over the day to day running as Operations Director.
The awards were created by Family Business United to give a platform to great British family firms that use their family nature and values to build successful businesses and represent great ambassadors for the sector. The awards celebrate the UK family business sector and recognise the diversity of family firms across the country and celebrate the contribution that they make.
Speaking about the family’s triumph, Study Links Operations Director, Ailie Fan, says: “I am thrilled that Study Links has been crowned the Yorkshire People’s Choice Award at the Family Business of the Year Awards 2016. Being a warm, caring family business is what makes Study Links unique and this is a very special award for my family. The Study Links family extends to the Study Links team, our students, partners and homestay; this is a very special moment for all of us."
