Now in their seventh year, the Croydon Business Excellence Awards celebrate the successes and achievements of the borough’s large and vibrant business community. 

Since their inception, the awards have gone from strength to strength, with last year’s event attracting a record number of entries and over 450 people to the glittering awards ceremony.

Speaking on behalf of headline sponsor Willmott Dixon, Roger Forsdyke, managing director of Willmott Dixon in South London and the Southern Home Counties, said:  “We have worked in the borough for a number of years and are delighted to be one of the many businesses that contribute to making a difference for the people of Croydon. Therefore, it is with great pride that we are able to sponsor the Croydon Business Awards to celebrate all of their fantastic achievements.”

Launch sponsor, Green Network Energy UK also welcomed the 2018 awards.  Sabrina Corbo, Executive Vice-President, commented: “Green Network Energy is about accepting challenges, doing things differently, and using our passion in our business. We started our careers in 2003 as a start-up and we pushed our entrepreneurial attitudes further and higher, moving into the UK in 2014 to create Green Network Energy UK.

"We believe in talent and have always supported new talent to build their professional careers. That’s why today we want to promote and encourage talented entrepreneurs to take the next step and be the new generation of successful businesses. We consider the Croydon Business Excellence Awards a great opportunity to support the best talent and the start-ups that will bring growth to Croydon."

As well as Willmott Dixon and Green Network Energy UK, the 2018 awards are sponsored by Allianz Partners, AMP House, Chequers Cleaning Contract Services, Superdrug, and Sussex Innovation Centre and supported by Mobile Bar Hire, and Handelsbanken.
