Sussex-based chartered accountants MHA Carpenter Box have been named as a finalist in a remarkable three categories of the prestigious 2020 Gatwick Diamond Business Awards.
Now in their twelfth year, the awards celebrate people and businesses who have shown innovation and inspiration in their work and have demonstrated a real commitment to the region; they celebrate the ‘best of the best’ across the Gatwick Diamond.
MHA Carpenter Box has grown from strength-to-strength in recent years and now employs over 170 people at its offices in Worthing, Brighton and Gatwick; in fact, in the last month the firm has moved to new larger premises in Gatwick to meet the growing demand for its services in the area.
MHA Carpenter Box Managing Partner, Alan Edwards, was delighted to hear that the firm has been nominated as a finalist in the Employer of the Year and the Developing People categories of the awards. It has also been shortlisted in the Community Investment Business of the Year category following a very successful year in 2019 where the firm’s Charitable Foundation raised over £35,000 for local charities in its 10th anniversary year.
Alan commented: “Being shortlisted in no less than three categories of such prestigious awards is a great achievement for MHA Carpenter Box and it highlights the quality of our team members – all of whom like to go that extra mile to help our clients achieve their business goals.”
The firm now has to wait until Thursday 19th March to find out the results at a glittering awards ceremony at the Effingham Park Hotel, Gatwick.
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
