Hosted by broadcaster and columnist, Julia Hartley-Brewer, this year's Kingston Business Excellence Awards was a sell-out event and attended by over 200 representatives from the local business community.
Judges from Kingston University's Business and Enterprise Centre were delighted to award local website design and digital marketing company, Figment Agency with the Best Creative and Media Sector Business award.
Ron Tuninga, Pro Vice Chancellor of Enterprise and Dean of the Faculty of Business and Law, presented the prize and said: "The winner of this category is an entrepreneurial business with great creative and technical initiative. They have big plans for future expansion with excellent marketing and financial analysis."
After the event, Steve Grant, Managing Director of Figment Agency said: "The award has given an instant boost to team spirit; it's been fantastic for PR and has already fuelled our drive to achieve even greater things in the future. I also think it gives a nod of acknowledgement to the smaller business and would urge other businesses in the area to enter next year, whatever their size". Steve Grant, Managing Director, Figment Agency
Kingston University is pleased to sponsor the annual awards which are developed and organised by Kingston Chamber of Commerce, and held in partnership with Kingstonfirst and the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames.
