Hundreds of individuals from businesses across the county came together on Friday evening (14 June) for the Oxfordshire Business Awards 2019, as the winners across 14 categories were announced.
The black-tie dinner – held at the John Henry Brookes Building at Oxford Brookes University – was attended by 500 guests, representing businesses from a variety of sectors and hosted by the TV personality and impressionist Rory Bremner.
Since its launch in 1994, the ‘OXBA’ has recognised the achievements of thousands of businesses from right across Oxfordshire, including accolades for new businesses, small businesses and the county’s larger businesses.
Finalists for this year’s awards were announced at the beginning of May, following a record number of award applications.
The 25th OXBA are sponsored by 14 of the county’s leading businesses, with 13 prizes awarded – ranging from accolades celebrating innovation, through to a charity and community award.
The winner of a 14th category – the very special Hawkins Business of the Year Award – was chosen from all the winners and finalists across each of the 13 award categories and went to property and construction consultants Ridge & Partners LLP.
Thank you to our Dinner sponsor Newton.
