Cawarden honoured with family business award

Derby-based Specialist Contractor, Cawarden, has received a major award at an awards ceremony that celebrates the UK family business sector.

Cawarden was announced as the Midlands and Central Family Business of the Year by Rob Davies, senior affiliate at BanyanGlobal. They also came runner-up in the Property & Construction Family Business of the Year and Midlands & Central People’s Choice Family Business of the Year.

The awards took place in an online premiere airing on YouTube which brought the British family business community together to celebrate the very best of the sector.

Businesses were judged against criteria including the roles family members play in the day-to-day running of the business, family values and the positive impact delivered to the wider community through philanthropic activities.

William Crooks, Cawarden Managing Director, said: “It’s fantastic to be chosen as the Midlands and Central Family Business of the Year winner as well as being a runner up in two other categories. It means so much to my whole family and the wider Cawarden Family. We hope our family business serves as an inspiration to other family businesses out there.

“This award is a testament to everyone’s hard work and I’m delighted by our success. We will be able to look back on this achievement with immense pride and it will form a wonderful milestone in our rich heritage which all started from very humble beginnings. A huge thank you and well done to the entire Cawarden team – our award success would not have been possible without you!”

Paul Andrews, founder & CEO, FBU, adds: “Cawarden is a fabulous family business with purpose and values at its core. The judges were really impressed with their submission and the journey that they have been on as a family and as a business. There is a real ethos of ‘family’ throughout the business and a real purpose to excel at what they do.

“This is a pioneering family firm that is recognised as a leader in their sector and the fact that multiple generations of families have worked in the business speaks volumes for the culture that has been created and the way that they look after their staff. Cawarden has come a long way and continues to strive to do more, driving excellence through investment and improvement and are worthy winners of this award.”

The Family Business of the Year Awards were created by Family Business United (FBU) to celebrate the UK family business sector, to recognise the diversity of family firms across the country and to celebrate the contribution that they make.
