“I am so passionate about the Hawkins and Brimble brand, the values we represent and the success that we’ve already had, that I’m delighted to stand front and centre representing a company that celebrates great British quality and the true spirit of entrepreneurialism”

Hawkins and Brimble founder Stephen Shortt has been shortlisted for the The Duke of York New Entrepreneur of the Year for the 2018 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.

Gloucestershire-based entrepreneur Shortt, set up Hawkins and Brimble in 2016 with a vision to create a range of grooming products that epitomized ‘cool Britannia’; meeting the needs of the modern man, using an expert blend of natural ingredients that yield ‘unrivalled results’. With the business still only in its second year of trading, Shortt now leads a focussed team that has taken this unique range to an astonishing brand value of £5m.

The awards, now in their 17th year, have a long-standing history of celebrating the best of British business. Entries opened earlier this year when The Lloyds Bank National Business Awards opened the London Stock Exchange. Called the “Oscars of great British business” by Former Prime Minister David Cameron, the awards recognise companies who are driving exceptional growth across the country.

Speaking of the shortlisting Shortt said, “I’m not generally one to put myself in the limelight when it comes to awards such as these, preferring to stay very much part of the team and celebrate our collective success. However, I am so passionate about the Hawkins and Brimble brand, the values we represent and the success that we’ve already had, that I’m delighted to stand front and centre representing a company that celebrates great British quality and the true spirit of entrepreneurialism.”

The shortlist was finalised after over a thousand registrations were meticulously assessed against each category’s criteria. Sarah Austin, Brand Director of The Lloyds Bank National Business Awards explained, “All entries faced a rigorous judging process, which is why the awards are an accolade to true, world-class achievements, offering businesses the credibility and encouragement to continue in their ambitious success. Due to the high-level of competition witnessed this year, all finalists should feel incredibly proud.”

The finalists must now make their presentations to a panel of judges and leading business luminaries, after which the winners will be revealed on the November 13 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.
