Sure Group founder and MD shortlisted for top Yorkshire business award

We’re excited to announce that our founder and managing director has been shortlisted for one of Yorkshire’s most prestigious business awards.

Charles Draper has been shortlisted for Entrepreneur of the Year at The Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business
Awards 2020.

The Yorkshire Post Excellence awards recognise and celebrate the inspirational business people who are bringing jobs and investment to our region during a period of uncertainty.

The awards shine the spotlight on the region’s brightest, bravest and best-performing companies.

In a year that has presented every single person in Yorkshire with significant challenges, the awards will honour the firms which have weathered the storm the best, not just in terms of performance but also how they looked out for clients, customers and staff.

They will be presented by a top class media personality and celebrate the best of Yorkshire commerce.

On his shortlisting, Charles said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have been selected for the shortlisted of Entrepreneur of the Year at The Yorkshire Post Excellence Awards. These awards are an outstanding showcase of Yorkshire’s best business talents and achievements and it is an honour to be featured alongside these high-profile individuals and organisations.

Charles added: “This has been a challenging year for everyone involved in business and this is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and recognise the hard work, creativity and resilience of our business community.”

Greg Wright, the Yorkshire Post’s business editor, said: “The awards ceremony has become
one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the region’s corporate calendar.

“The wonderful, dynamic enterprising companies that have earned a place on the shortlist prove that our region is the best place in Britain to do business.

“The judging panel was particularly impressed with the large number of companies who have gone out of their way to protect and support the local community during the pandemic.

“It is more important than ever that we focus on our region’s deep-rooted commitment to enterprise
and innovation.”

The Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards 2020 will take place on Wednesday, November 4 through a digitally streamed event. For more information visit: https://www.yorkshirebusinessexcellence.co.uk/
