John Jones shortlisted for 2013 Red Ribbon Awards
21 March 2013
We are delighted to announce that John Jones has been shortlisted in the ‘Entrepreneurship’ category of the fourth annual edition of the Red Ribbon Awards! Hosted by Family Business Place, these are the only UK national awards dedicated to recognising the achievements of family businesses across all sectors. The awards ceremony will take place 5th July, 2013 at the Lancaster Hotel in an evening which includes a three course meal, live entertainment and the award presentation itself.
“We were spoilt for choice with this year’s nominations. From the hundreds who entered, we believe we’ve shortlisted six family businesses who all truly deserve to win. It’s no secret that family-run businesses are the backbone of the UK economy. In times of uncertainty they are the last ones to make redundancies, keep a long-term view for the business and stay true to their founding values of integrity, trust and loyalty. At Family Business Place we are honoured to present the Red Ribbon Awards to some of the best the sector has to offer and look forward to announcing the winners in London on 5th July.” Anita Brightley-Hodges, Managing Director of Family Business Place
Our chairman and founder Mr John Jones MBE was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2012 Red Ribbon Awards and we hope to replicate this success at this year’s event!
