The shortlist has been revealed for the second annual New Year Business Dinner and Awards, incorporating the Sutton Coldfield and Lichfield & Tamworth Chambers of Commerce.
Three awards will be handed out at the sold-out event, which takes place at The Belfry on Friday 26 January.
Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Tamworth will each have a Business of the Year award, with four companies shortlisted in each category.
Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce chief operating officer Russell Jeans chaired a judging panel which included Solihull Chamber president Kevin Johns, Future Faces president Sian Averill and Asian Business Chamber vice president Manjit Kang.
Mr Jeans said: “The high calibre of entries for all three categories offered a great reminder of the quality of businesses in these parts of the region and drawing up the shortlist certainly proved to be a difficult task for the judges.
“The inaugural New Year Business Dinner was a resounding success and hopefully it will go on to become an important part of the Greater Birmingham business calendar.”
HSBC and Fairway Training Healthcare are headline sponsors for the event, which is being hosted by former Aston Villa TV presenter Jack Woodward.
Bracebridge Corporate Finance are sponsoring the Sutton Coldfield Business of the Year award, while Power Minerals – whose managing director is Sutton Chamber president Nigel Waldron – are backing the Sutton Coldfield President’s Award.
The print sponsors for the event are Tamworth-based KEP Print.
