This recognition reflects her ‘exceptional entrepreneurial spirit, dedication, and remarkable achievements within her industry.’ It also recognises her commitment to being an equal opportunities employer whose team is comprised of individuals from a vast range of backgrounds.
Speaking to The Leaders Council, Challess said, ‘I am thrilled that the firm is being recognised for its focus on opening doors as an equal opps employer, with learning and development at the forefront for every member of our team.’
Francesca James, founder of The Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said, ‘Every year I am blown away with the quantity and quality of applications we receive, and this year is no exception. The Great British Entrepreneur Awards receives thousands of applications annually and the competition is tough. I am truly inspired by the remarkable accomplishments of this year’s finalists. Their collective achievements of generating over £2.7 billion in turnover and employing over 33,000 people demonstrate the exceptional impact they have made in their industries and communities. These entrepreneurs exemplify the spirit of innovation, resilience, and growth that drives the entrepreneurial landscape in the UK.’
