West Oxfordshire Business Awards 2014In search of an outstanding business to win the Owen Mumford Innovation Award

The 2014 West Oxfordshire Business Awards (WOBA) are up and running and very soon the winners will be announced.  Owen Mumford is once again proud to sponsor the prestigious Innovation category and is looking forward to presenting this special award to the winning business.

As sponsors we take part in the judging, a part of the process we always enjoy.  Andy Vardé, Owen Mumford’s Director of Research and Development, who judges the Innovation category said; ‘The WOBA awards are all about celebrating successful local businesses.  Over 60 years ago Owen Mumford started life from a small lock-up garage with just three people and today it is a global company with Headquarters and manufacturing sites based in Oxfordshire and sales offices in China, Europe and the United States.  We are delighted to support an award which recognises new and innovative businesses that share our drive to grow and succeed.’

Last year’s winner of the Innovation Award was CETA Insurance; selected particularly for their innovative web tool, which allows them to establish branded Insurance websites for clients – within days.  We were impressed by how CETA understood user needs and planned and executed product development to meet that need perfectly, resulting in a number of new blue chip customers.

The WOBA 2014 Finalists were announced at a vibrant Entrants’ Celebration event hosted at AirTanker in Brize Norton on 4th February.  The 33 finalists were selected across 11 award categories and the winners will be announced at an Awards Gala Dinner on Friday 14th March 2014 when we look forward to revealing the business that has won the Owen Mumford Innovation Award.
