Outstanding business award success for Penn
Outstanding Branding CEO Sarah Penn (pictured center) was announced as the winner of the Woman in Business Award on June 13, at the Southwark Business Excellence Awards 2019.
The prestigious award recognises an individual, whose business acumen, leadership and success sets an example to others, and who has made a significant contribution to the local business community. At the same awards, Outstanding Branding was Highly Commended in the Employer of the Year category, which recognises companies taking care of their people.
It looks for employers with a strategic and committed approach towards employee investment, engagement, welfare, training, development and diversity, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or social status. Penn, who heads the certified wholly women-owned business, said: “I’m so overwhelmed to have received this accolade; being recognised for doing the job I love is a phenomenal feeling.
For Outstanding Branding to be recognised in the same night as a Highly Commended Employer of the Year is so incredibly rewarding too, and I’m enormously proud of our management team who have such a huge part to play. Also, of course, a huge debt of gratitude needs to be paid to my business partner, Andy Thorne, without whom neither I nor the company would be where we are today.”
