Zenith has been shortlisted for the Growing Business Awards 2011 Company of the Year, which recognises world-class independent companies that demonstrate high growth and high quality.
The Growing Business Awards are hosted by Real Business Magazine and the CBI, and are being held to coincide with the Government-backed Global Entrepreneurship Week on Monday, November 14, at the London Marriott Hotel.
Zenith has been shortlisted for Company of the Year, which has been won in previous years by Betfair, LOVEFiLM and lastminute.com.
In order to be shortlisted, Zenith had to demonstrate market leadership, consistent and profitable growth, scaleability of business, a positive impact on the industry, undeniable customer engagement, product and service innovation, evidence of best practice in customer service, excellence in people management and workforce motivation as well as a commitment to sustainability and to the local community.
Tim Buchan (pictured), Zenith’s chief executive officer, said: “Our ongoing growth is down to our continuous innovation, our drive to lead the market and our ability to deliver high quality, cost effective vehicle solutions. The loyal and dedicated team at Zenith has worked very hard to build a company that we can all be proud of.”
Zenith’s Directors will attend a judging day later this month when they will be grilled by the likes of Helen Loveless, Enterprise editor for the Financial Mail on Sunday; Charles Morgan, managing director of Morgan Motor Company; and Isabel Oswell, head of business at The British Library.
