Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM is sponsoring and judging the ‘Growth Champion of Surrey’ Award, a new category at this year’s Surrey Business Awards.

The Surrey Business Awards, back for their third year, are all about celebrating local business, large and small, and provide a great opportunity for companies to boost their profile, grow their networks and help put Surrey on the map as one of the best places to do business in the South East.

Despite the uncertainty since the Brexit vote and various changes in the economic growth figures over the past few years, there have been many businesses in Surrey achieving outstanding, sustainable growth. RSM wants to recognise this achievement. 

These companies are vital to the UK’s economic success – they account for annual revenues of more than £43.4bn, driving rising demand, lowering unemployment and generating wealth and prosperity across the South East. 

RSM partner Jon Da Costa said: “Surrey is a powerhouse, with over 144,000 active businesses delivering a significant and growing contribution to the national economy. The county is home to many dynamic businesses, notably in the construction, professional services and technology sectors.

“The launch of this new award provides a great opportunity to recognise the hard work that Surrey businesses have put in to driving their growth, and we are proud to be involved.”

RSM will be kicking off this exciting new category with extensive research to identify the fastest-growing businesses in the county. While the growth statistics are the basis for the research, RSM is interested in the story behind the numbers. 

The firm will be contacting the Surrey-based companies that have been shortlisted from the research to invite them to participate in the awards. This will be a great opportunity to celebrate success, increase brand exposure and attract the best talent.
