SSE Audio scoops Business Masters Award13 June 2017
Around 200 guests gathered to see Redditch-based SSE Audio Group win the ‘Medium Business’ gong at the annual West Midlands Business Masters Awards ceremony, held at the Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham, last week. The annual awards recognise Midlands-based firms that have contributed significantly towards the region’s economy.
SSE was the winner in the category for companies employing 50-250 people. Group directors and founders John and Heather Penn picked up the award on the night.
Alex Turner, editor of TheBusinessDesk.com: “It was a fantastic evening that celebrated the achievements of businesses, large and small, from across the West Midlands.
“The strength of the entries for the awards meant that only the very best companies made it onto the shortlist and they should all be very proud of their success.”
John Penn: “It’s a great honour for us to have won this award against some stiff competition. After our success last year at the Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, this is further recognition of how far we have come as a company. The world of rock ’n’ roll is now being recognised as the serious professional operation it is, making a significant contribution to the economy at a regional and national level.”
SSE celebrated its 40th anniversary last year and is now the largest UK supplier in the live events sector, with offices in Redditch, London and Heywood, Manchester.
