The Growth Business awards programme is a continuation of the highly respected M&A Awards, which have been recognising corporate finance and deal-making excellence for ten years.

The SME of the Year category is open to any business with an annual turnover between £2m and £10m and a staff of up to 250 employees. The award recognises businesses that have shown significant organic growth, and can show evidence that they have a sustainable and effective plan to continue and accelerate growth in the future.

Neva Consultants’ Senior Partner Graham Prince said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be shortlisted again for a national award and that our significant growth has been recognised in this way.

“The team has worked extremely hard in the last two years to grow the company while creating job opportunities and supporting the local community. We are so pleased that our efforts have been recognised once again.”
