MHA Carpenter Box Shortlisted in GDB Awards for the second year running


Sussex-based chartered accountants, tax and business advisers, MHA Carpenter Box, has been named as one of only three finalists in the Business of the Year category of the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards 2018 for the second year running.


MHA Carpenter Box Practice Director, Chris Coopey, is understandably delighted with the news, commenting: “Being shortlisted for such a prestigious award for a second time is great news and highlights the quality of the team here at MHA Carpenter Box – all of whom like to go that extra mile to help our clients achieve their business goals. We won a national accountancy award in 2016 and the Professional Services Firm of the Year in 2015, so our fingers are firmly crossed that following a record-breaking trading performance last year, we’ll be a real contender as Business of the Year.”


With its main head office in Worthing and a Gatwick office that has grown from four employees to 27 in a little over two years, MHA Carpenter Box has seen an impressive increase in its client base which made 2017 an exceptional 12 months for the firm.


The Business of the Year category is awarded to high performing and innovative companies that do the right thing for their clients, people and the Gatwick Diamond Community.


The Gatwick Diamond is a key economic area, not just for the South East, but for the whole of the UK and the business awards celebrate those who have shown innovation and inspiration in their work, as well as real commitment to the region. The awards, now in their tenth year, have become one of the regions premier business occasions recognising the ‘best of the best’.


MHA Carpenter Box now has to wait until 15 March to find out the results, which will be presented by comedian Brian Conley at a glittering black-tie ceremony at the Effingham Park Hotel, Gatwick.
