One year after scooping two prestigious national business awards, Ashbourne Insurance returned to the event as judge and sponsor.
The independent high street broker sponsored the “Customer First” category at the annual Red Ribbon Awards which celebrates successful family run businesses. The black-tie award ceremony took place at the Lancaster London Hotel last Friday, July 5th. The entertainment was provided by the South London, Military Wives Choir and the after dinner speaker was celebrity chef, Michel Roux Jr.
Ashbourne, which has been established for over 30 years and is now run by the second generation of family members, won the “Customer First” award last year against stiff competition including The Goring Hotel, Timpson’s and Travel Counsellors. The Hoddesdon and Cheshunt-based company also picked up a second award in 2012 when Finance Director Sarah Smits, won the “Family Business Ambassador” award.
At this year’s ceremony Managing Director Peter Smits presented the Customer First award. He said: “Winning this award last year really helped raise our profile both amongst our customers and also within the trade. It has given our business a huge competitive advantage and so we are delighted to be giving something back by sponsoring it this year.”
Since collecting the Red Ribbon awards Ashbourne has added to its success by winning the Small to Medium Business of the Year category at the recent Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s awards 2013.
