Usborne Publishing has been crowned Private Business of the Year at the Private Business Awards 2015.
Founder Peter Usborne was on hand to accept the award at the ceremony that took place in London on September 30th.
Sponsored by PwC and in association with HSBC Private Bank and Numis Securities Ltd, the Private Business Awards recognises the success and achievement within the UK’s private business sector.
There are ten different categories, allowing the judges to focus on enterprises of different sizes and approach.
“This is the first award we have won that is not from the publishing industry, but from a much bigger pool – the whole world of private business,” said Usborne, founder of Usborne Publishing.
“While I am somewhat reluctant to think of myself as a ‘businessman’ I am honoured to be seen in this way. But the main credit must go to my staff. I receive awards. They win them.”
