Gatwick Diamond Business Awards 2019 The Winners are announced

25 March 2019

The 2019 winners of the prestigious Gatwick Diamond Business Awards were announced on Thursday evening to a packed audience at the Effingham Park Hotel, Gatwick.  Highlights included Nick Broom being recognised as Business Person of the Year and his company, PVL ltd of Burgess Hill, winning the Business of the Year Award for larger businesses.

 Now in their 11th year, the Awards are a well-established highlight of the business calendar. They celebrate the achievements of individual businesses and business people across a wide range of categories.  Importantly, they also showcase the success of the Gatwick Diamond economic area as major driver of the regional and national economies. 

 This year’s ceremony was hosted by Shaun Williamson a familiar face on stage and screen, starting with his break-through role as Barry Evans in Eastenders.  More recently he has supported Ricky Gervais in TV comedy classics including Extras.  The audience of 600 were also entertained by Xavier, fresh from stealing the show as contenders on BBC One’s “All Together NOW”.

 The Awards are strongly supported by the Gatwick Diamond business community.  The Headline Sponsors were Gatwick Airport, NatWest, Thakeham Group and Extech Cloud.
