Osborne announced as a Lloyds Bank National Business Awards finalist

Today, 23 July 2015, Osborne has been shortlisted in the Customer Focus category for the 2015 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. Osborne, based in Surrey, is a construction, property services and property development company, employing around 800 people.

Osborne is the only main contractor to have been shortlisted at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. Going up against other finalists, Osborne will compete for the prestigious prize, with the winner being revealed at a gala dinner, held on 10 November at Park Lane’s Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Andy Steele, Group Chief Executive at Osborne said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for the Customer Focus award, and even more so for being the only company within our industry to be nominated. At Osborne we work really hard to put the customer at the heart of everything we do and this is a fantastic accolade for our people.”

An all-encompassing range of industries are represented in the shortlists for this year’s awards, with companies from recruitment and children’s clothing, to pet food and online marketing being selected for the chance to win a coveted Lloyds Bank National Business Award.  The scale of the finalists is just as varied, with companies turning over less than a million pounds to over £25 million, employing 20 people or over 70,000 people.

Tom Broughton, Programme Director of the National Business Awards said: “The quality and range of this year’s entries exceed even those of last year, which is no mean feat. The draw of being involved with the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards has seen companies from all kinds of industries submit applications, which have been narrowed down using our thorough and comprehensive scoring system. We are now looking forward to the next step in the judging process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”

Finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories. They will now prepare for live presentations to expert judges who will decide the overall winners that will be revealed at the awards ceremony on 10 November.
