David Twiddle, Managing Director of Twiddle & Co, sponsors of the inaugural Yorkshire Family Business of the Year Award comments, “As specialists in working with family firms across the UK but with a base in Yorkshire, we are delighted to be sponsoring this award. Yorkshire provided the overall Supreme Champions in these awards last year with Potter Logistics scooping three awards including the overall title, and as the strength and the diversity of the shortlisted firms this year demonstrates, the region is worthy of an award in its own right.”
“We are delighted to be sponsoring this award which seeks to celebrate the best family businesses in Yorkshire, the contribution that they make to this great county and beyond, and to recognise them for this contribution.”
