Ben Russell chosen to judge Wirral Business Awards

BEN Russell, chief executive at Russell Taylor Holdings, has been chosen to be on the judging panel of Wirral Business Awards 2019, one of the biggest business events in the North West.

Ben, who was named Business Person of the Year at the Wirral Business Awards in 2017, will join other judges who have all been selected for their broad knowledge and experience in industry and commerce throughout the region.

The awards, organised by Wirral Chamber of Commerce and Mills Creative Media, will be held at The Floral Pavilion, New Brighton, on June 21 to celebrate best practice and the positive impact local businesses make on the national and international economy.

Ben said: “One of the biggest achievements of my life was winning the Business Person of the Year award two years ago.

“The greatest reward in getting recognition like this means you can pay tribute to the teams of people in your business who make it all possible. Without their skills and dedication to their jobs and to our customers, the organisation would not be the amazing success it is today.

“Wirral has a huge amount of business talent and Wirral Business Awards is the ideal platform to showcase the enterprise and innovation of these companies and the huge contribution they make to the local, national and international economy.”

Paula Basnett, chief executive at Wirral Chamber of Commerce, said: “Ben Russell is one of the region’s leading entrepreneurs, proven by the success of Russell Taylor Holdings which was recently named as the UK’s fastest-growing privately-owned recruitment company.

“He will bring great knowledge and experience to the judging panel of the Wirral Business Awards and, as a former award winner himself, there is no doubt he will be very supportive to those businesses looking to highlight their innovation, enterprise and success.”
