Sara Speirs, Managing Director of Spectrum Service Solutions has been shortlisted for the 2018 Royal Bank of Scotland Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the Service Industries Entrepreneur of the Year award.
Spectrum beat off some tough competition in order to make the regional shortlist, with a record number of businesses entering the awards nationally across the wide range of categories.
Now in its sixth year, the Royal Bank of Scotland Great British Entrepreneur Awards has celebrated some amazing entrepreneurs over the years, many of whom are now household names. Past winners include David Buttress of Just Eat, Julie Deane of The Cambridge Satchel Company, and James Watt of BrewDog.
The Service Industries Entrepreneur of the Year Award celebrates those who operate in the service industry and provide a service in an original way. Spectrum, who have offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, offer a unique service which positions them as a perfect candidate for the award.
Sara Speirs, Managing Director at Spectrum Service Solutions, said: “I am delighted that we have been acknowledged for our hard work and commitment in the industry. The awards have recognised some great entrepreneurs in the past and we are honoured to be on the list of finalists within the Services Industries category for 2018.”
Creator of the Awards, Francesca James, said: “We have been inundated with some incredible entries this year, and all shortlisted applicants should be extremely proud of themselves! This year has yet again seen a record number of entrants and we’ve been absolutely blown away by the strength and diversity of applications.”
Gordon Merrylees, Head of Entrepreneurship at NatWest said: “Following another record-breaking year, I want to thank all of the entrepreneurs who entered and congratulate those who have been shortlisted, I look forward to seeing them at the regional finals.”
“Entrepreneurial spirit is still clearly alive and well, and NatWest is thrilled to be able to continue to support these awards to celebrate success with the businesses that are the lifeblood of the UK Economy as they start, scale and succeed.”
