We have just won the North West Family Business of the Year Award 2022 for Business Services, beating off strong competition from a record number of 186 businesses from across the North West region.
The award was presented on Friday night at The Rum Warehouse in the Titanic Hotel, Liverpool, with food writer and presenter Nigel Barden as the host for the evening.
When announcing the winner, the judges said that “It was clear how much Hackney & Leigh care for the team that work with them, and how culturally, they all live the vision and values of their story as a family business,” going on to add that “It was evident that this was very important to all, and not just as part of growth, but also for the sustainability of their business in the local communities.”
Speaking after receiving the award, Simon Leigh added “Hackney & Leigh is 40 years old this summer, and this award, which means the world to us, is a great way to kick start our birthday celebrations. This award is really for our amazing team and extended family (3 of whom have been with the company for 35 of those 40 years!) and without whom it wouldn’t have been possible.”
Derrick Hackney commented yesterday, “Since we were announced as winners on Friday night, we have had so many lovely messages of support and congratulations from clients, suppliers, and members of the communities in which we live and work in. Every message has been hugely appreciated, as without the support of everyone around us we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
