The Albert Goodman Family Business of the Year Award
Leading Somerset based accountancy firm, Albert Goodman, is delighted to be the main sponsor of the Somerset Business Awards for the third year running. The firm is also thrilled to sponsor its own Award, the Albert Goodman Family Business Award, which launched last year.
Albert Goodman has a long standing relationship with the Awards, having been the main sponsor since 2009. Managing Partner, David Griffin, explains why the firm supports the Awards so extensively, “At a time when we are experiencing the worst economic conditions for several decades, the doom and gloom promoted by the national media can be contagious and depress activity. However, at a local level, smaller businesses are adapting and innovating to thrive. By celebrating the success of these local businesses, the Somerset Business Awards help promote the positive activity happening within our local business community.”
David adds, “It was a natural choice for us to support Somerset’s large number of family businesses by creating the Albert Goodman Family Business Award. We are extremely proud to hold the renowned International Centre for Families in Business (ICFIB) Corporate Member Accreditation and are tremendously passionate about providing quality, specialised services to family businesses.
“Specifically, the Albert Goodman Family Business Award celebrates those businesses that have achieved excellence, success and longevity. For a family business to be successful there is no blue-print or proven formula, but it is possible to learn from the experiences of others. So, by celebrating successful family businesses, and the attributes that have made them a success, we will hopefully inspire and motivate others. Our sponsorship of the Award underlines our specialist knowledge and commitment to family businesses within our region.”
One of the largest firms of independent Chartered Accountants in the South West and within the top 60 firms in the UK, Albert Goodman has 15 partners and over 200 staff with offices in Taunton, Chard, Yeovil, Weston-super-Mare, Bridgwater and Weymouth.
