Monday 08 October 2018

We are delighted that IMC Worldwide has won in the Large Business of the Year and Company of the Year categories at the Surrey Business Awards 2018. Winners were announced at a gala dinner on Thursday 4 October at Epsom Down Racecourse.

The Awards, in association with Surrey Chamber of Commerce, celebrated success among companies and individuals in the Surrey county. 

Hundreds of applicants entered and the 46 finalists, which represented a wide range of sectors and company sizes, competed in 15 categories.

Standout people create a standout business that does standout things.

– Gavin English, IMC Managing Director

Entries were independently judged by a panel of industry experts and insiders from across the region, chaired by Louise Punter, CEO of Surrey Chambers of Commerce.

The Large Company of the Year Award, sponsored by Heathrow Airport, recognises businesses that demonstrate a healthy financial performance and a strategic plan for growth.

The highly sought-after Company of the Year Award, sponsored by NatWest, is not directly entered but chosen by the judges from businesses entering SME of the Year and Large Business of the Year.

IMC was crowned Company of the Year because judges found we excelled in every part of the awards criteria, from financial performance to strategy for developing the business, through to engagement in the community, to mention just a few.

IMC Worldwide is delighted to be awarded the 2018 Surrey Business “Large Business of the Year Award” and the “Company of the Year Award”. Winning these awards is testament to the high quality, dedication and experience of our people who are passionate about improving the lives of the less fortunate around the world’, commented IMC Worldwide Managing Director Gavin English. ‘We are very proud to be a successful Surrey-based business contributing positively to a thriving community.
