Luxury motorhome company, Travelworld Motorhomes received a highly commended accolade for Fastest Growing Business at the Midlands Family Business Awards on Thursday 23rd November.

Attended by over 300 guests and held at Leicester's Athena, the ceremony and dinner featured some of the region's most accomplished businesses from all different sectors.

Sponsored by PwC, the Fastest Growing Business category recognises businesses who can demonstrate strong and sustained growth, as well as family values.

Ross Edwards, managing director of Travelworld said: "To receive recognition for the growth we've achieved over a short space of time, is a testament to everyone at Travelworld, a team that, as we speak, continues to demonstrate its commitment, working hard in preparation for our big move to Cresswell Park in Staffordshire by the end of the month."

In its ninth year, the MFBA is a not-for-profit initiative celebrating the achievements of businesses across the whole Midlands region and is run by Nottingham-based insurance and financial solutions provider, the Wilson Organisation, also a family business.

Wilson's managing director, Charlotte Perkins said the team and judges were 'blown away' by the calibre of all the finalists. She said: "We run the awards as a not-for-profit initiative and are honoured to provide a platform for the Midlands' family business community to showcase and celebrate their successes and work, for the ninth year running.

"The talent, ambition and entrepreneurial spirit of our finalists and winners highlights the significant role that family businesses play in keeping the Midlands' economy thriving."

Ross continued: "We congratulate all other businesses who took part this year. For us, not only were we celebrating as a Midlands-based business but we were also proud to be representing the motorhome sector. Our big takeaway from the awards credit is even further impetus to keep on growing and being successful."
