Double success for Tharsus at the North East Chamber of Commerce Annual Business Awards 2022
Colleagues from across Tharsus Group joined Founder Brian Palmer, Universal Wolf MD Tim Rutter and Group CEO Joni Rautavuori at the awards dinner, where they got a lot more than they bargained for...
We’d been shortlisted for Larger Business of the Year, so they were thrilled to collect our award after we were named the winner. However, little did they realise they would be on stage a second time to collect the top award of the night – Business of the Year 2022!
Drawn from the category winners, Business of the Year recognizes a stand-out submission. Making the winning announcement, Darush Dodds, Corporate Affairs Director of sponsor Esh Group, called out our colleagues saying:
“What really stood out with Tharsus Group is their ability to onboard people and develop them, giving them a career with lots of potential – the true meaning of Social Mobility. Privately-owned and proud of its Northumberland roots, this is a North-East business truly representative of what this region and its people are capable of. They’re flying the flag for this region on a world stage.”
Attributing this double success to our colleagues, Brian Palmer praised the “dedication, hard work and spirit which make our achievements and this recognition possible” adding “these are their awards!”
Our thanks go to the awards organisers and our congratulations to all those who were shortlisted and won. An exceptional group of truly great businesses.
