Neva Consultants has been shortlisted for a national award for the second time in less than a year.
The company, which offers contract hire, vehicle finance and fleet management consultancy services, was identified by Growthbusiness.co.uk as one of 17 fast-growth UK successes in the start-up, SME and mid-market business segments to be shortlisted in the High Potential Business Awards 2016.
The company has grown by 40% in the past two years and arranged finance for a total of £67 million pounds worth of vehicles in the last calendar year.
Neva Consultants is competing against Rant & Rave, Farsail, Bloom & Wild, Revoo and Union Hand-Roasted Coffee.
The winner will be announced on June 22 at a ceremony held at The Savoy in London.
The SME of the year category is open to any business with an annual turnover between £2m and £10m and a staff of up to 250 employees.
The award recognises businesses that have shown significant organic growth, and can show evidence that they have a sustainable and effective plan to continue and accelerate growth in the future.
Graham Prince, senior partner at Neva Consultants, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be shortlisted again for a national award and that our significant growth has been recognised in this way.
“The team has worked extremely hard in the last two years to grow the company while creating job opportunities and supporting the local community. We are so pleased that our efforts have been recognised once again.”
Last year Neva Consultants was crowned one of the regional winners in the awards run by the British Chambers of Commerce.
The company won the regional award for best use of technology to improve business performance and represented the south region in the national finals last November.
Neva Consultants services all sectors ranging from multi-national companies, SMEs and private individuals.
Presently operating a fleet size of circa 6,000 vehicles and growing, the company deals with all aspects of vehicle procurement including vehicle choice, tax efficiency, Grey Fleet and Duty of Care obligations.
