Corporate and commercial partner, Chris Wills, commented: “As someone who is new to the county, being involved in the judging process alongside the other panel members offered me an invaluable snapshot of the diverse range of successful businesses that Gloucestershire has to offer.

“The calibre of the entries showcased the strength and depth of Gloucestershire’s business offering in a wide variety of sectors, and it was particularly encouraging to see the number of businesses who are exporting their products and their services outside of the county and, indeed, the country. 

“We wish Datasource Computer Employment, Gloucester Carpet Outlet and Truturn Precision Engineering the best of luck in the Family Business of the Year category, and look forward to presenting the winning business with their award this October.”
