GRIMSBY’S Pink Jacket Marketing has pulled off a double award win at The 2017/18 Yorkshire & Humber Enterprise Awards.
The Business Hive-based operator won Excellence in Corporate Event Planning, and Best in Lead Generation.
Managing director Julie Keen said: “To win one award is amazing, but to win two is beyond comprehension. The awards were anonymous and judged by an independent panel, so it was a massive shock when I received the news out of the blue. To be recognised by independent experts is just incredible.
“This year has been fantastic for awards – we were shortlisted for Best New Business in the Northern Lincolnshire Business Awards, as well as being runner-up in the Lincs Digital & Tech Awards.
The company is less than three years old, having quickly moved from hot-desk arrangement at the E-Factor centre on Dudley Street to an office.
“It’s a real honour to be recognised for the hard work and effort we put in to managing our clients,” Miss Keen added.
“Generating leads and arranging corporate events can be very challenging, especially in the current climate of uncertainty around Brexit, but to be recognised and rewarded for something I love doing, it’s amazing.”
She has been working with Brigg-based Action Coach John McHale, who has helped several companies succeed and be celebrated, as previously reported.
He was described as a catalyst for business success after helping several companies earn high-profile recognition.
“John is fantastic,” Miss Keen said. “He challenges me and the business to be the best we can be. My only regret is that I didn’t start working with him sooner!”
