Chesterfield businesses confirmed as finalists for East Midlands Chamber Business Awards 2022

The finalists of this year’s East Midlands Chamber Business Awards have been revealed.

Businesses from Chesterfield up for awards include Banner Jones Solicitors, UKATA, Great 2,  Future Life Wealth Management, DBC Training, Rose Cottage Doggy Day Car, The Accountancy Recruitment Group, Aztec Oils and Sheds Ground Maintenance.

In total more than 150 organisations from across Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire have been recognised in the 2022 edition of the annual awards, celebrating the region’s world-class businesses, and are once again delivered in partnership with principal sponsor Mazars.

The awards are split into three events for each county and feature 14 categories, ranging from Community Impact and Excellence in Collaboration to Excellence in Innovation and Commitment to People Development.

Finalists will now have a chance to state their case for winning at a virtual judging day in which they will be interviewed by a panel including sponsors, a Chamber board member and a representative from the Chamber’s senior leadership team.

An overall Business of the Year is also selected for each county from all finalists by Mazars.

East Midlands Chamber chief executive Scott Knowles said: “Despite the challenges of the past few years, our region continues to show its resilience, ingenuity and hunger for growth, and the line-up of this year’s Business Awards is testament to this.

“The East Midlands is packed with so many hugely successful businesses that are at the pinnacle of their industries, and it’s fantastic to have a chance to put them under the spotlight.
“Alongside showcasing the great examples of innovation, green growth and global trading – which are all integral to the future economic landscape – our Business Awards also celebrate how our companies support their people, communities and each other through collaboration.”

The Derbyshire Business Awards take place on Friday 11 November at Pride Park.
