Ashridge Group recognised as Buckinghamshire Business Awards Company of the Year

One of the UK's leading facilities management specialists, Ashridge Group won the Best in Aylesbury Vale business award at the Bucks Business event and then topped it by being awarded the overall prize of Company of the Year.

Based in Aylesbury, the Ashridge Group provides services and consultancy to sectors as diverse as corporates, live entertainment venues, rail and critical national infrastructure. Championing a people-oriented approach to business development, the company also looks to develop partnerships with other suppliers in the county as part of its aim to support the growth of the local economy.

Organised by Buckinghamshire Business First, a business-focused community which operates as a support hub for businesses in Buckinghamshire, the awards recognise entrepreneurial vision and hard work in the county. This year the glittering bash was held at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre, with the very best in local business turning out in force to celebrate each other’s great successes.

Alex Pratt OBE, holder of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion, was Master of Ceremonies for this year’s awards, he said, "Nights like tonight are touchstones along the road to growth, nights where business ideas are shown to bear fruit. These awards act as a celebration of success and a vindication of perseverance in the face of internal and external pressures that challenge all businesses."

Twelve individual awards were handed out on the night with categories including Growth Business of the Year, New Business of the Year and Business Leader of the Year. The final award of the night, selected from the pool of winners, is the Company of the Year award which recognises an outstanding organisation whose growth, ambition, quality of management and ethos have enabled it to outperform its peers.

On hearing the announcement that Ashridge Group had been selected as the overall winner for 2018, Group Managing Director Emma Walker said:

"We are absolutely delighted to have been named Best in Aylesbury Vale and even more thrilled to have been named the overall Company of the Year. We constantly strive to combine a quality service with a major emphasis on our own people's development. Being recognised by these prestigious awards reinforces our vision of excellence and underlines the hard work of all of our team."
