We've been shortlisted for the Lloyds Bank Mid-Market Business of the Year Award

We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Lloyds Bank Mid-Market Business of the Year Award for the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. LIND, a family owned and operated business represent BMW & Harley-Davidson Motorcycles and Porsche with dealerships in Guildford, Newmarket, Norwich, Reading, Tonbridge & Welwyn Garden City.

“As a family based automotive company, LIND strives to deliver excellence, integrity, and the highest levels of customer care in all of its businesses. Being shortlisted for a national business award endorses these values, but more importantly it gives the team some highly prized recognition.’’ Russell Dacre, MBE Owner & Managing Director.

The 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 an expert judging panel who will decide the overall winners.

Described as “the Oscars of great British business” by David Cameron, former Prime Minister, this year’s prestigious award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 15th November, at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, where the winners will be revealed. 

For the first time, Conor McGinn MP recently hosted a reception for the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards at the House of Commons. This enabled finalists to meet fellow entrants, the National Business Awards Advisory Board members, judges (who they will present to in September) and sponsors of each category.

Tom Broughton, Group Brand Director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards said: “Due to the high number of entries for this years’ awards, narrowing the entries down to 140 finalists was a difficult task. But through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, the selected finalists demonstrate exceptional quality and diversity across a range of business sectors within the UK. We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
