Business award winners crowned at glittering event

The winners of the third annual Sutton Coldfield and Lichfield & Tamworth Chambers of Commerce awards have been unveiled at a glittering event at The Belfry Hotel & Resort.

The Business of the Year winners were the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership (Sutton Coldfield Large Business), KEP Print Group (Lichfield and Tamworth Large Business), Ark Media Productions (Sutton Coldfield Small Business) and Proftech Talent (Lichfield and Tamworth Small Business).

The four were chosen by a panel of judges comprising Asian Business Chamber director Anjum Khan, Future Faces committee member Rebecca Halbert, ex-Birmingham Chamber president Steve Brittan and British American Business Council committee member Andy Newnham.

The Sutton Coldfield President’s Award went to Mustafa Shevket for his work as head of Sutton Coldfield College, while Paula Da-Silva from the Tamworth Wellbeing and Cancer Support Centre won the Lichfield & Tamworth President’s Award.

The awards dinner was hosted by former Aston Villa TV presenter Jack Woodward, while Birmingham City University were headline sponsors.

Sutton Coldfield Large Business winners, the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership, are a multi-academy trust made up of 12 schools across Birmingham, Staffordshire and Warwickshire.

Led by CEO and influential education sector leader Richard Gill, ATLP have earned a glowing reputation for providing outstanding education and developing the next generation of teachers.

KEP Print Group, the Lichfield and Tamworth Large Business winners, have experienced significant growth after bucking a trend that has led to other print companies suffering since the rise of digital marketing.

The family-run Tamworth firm pride themselves on their culture and staff retention – their average length of service for skilled workers is over 12 years.

Sutton Coldfield Small Business winners Ark Media’s work at the cutting edge of video production has led to contract wins with some well-known international brands.

Lichfield and Tamworth Small Business winners Proftech Talent are professional and technical recruitment experts who have grown their client base and staffing levels since launching in 2017.

Chris Brewerton, senior business development and relationship manager for the Sutton Coldfield and Lichfield & Tamworth Chambers, said: “These awards are a wonderful showcase of all the positive and inspiring work businesses across Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Tamworth have done during the past 12 months."
