Elliot Simmonds Has Been Nominated For Stockport Young Business Person of the Year

Speaking about being shortlisted, Elliot had the following to say:

“Obviously it’s a huge accolade to be on a shortlist of three for such a well-known local awards ceremony, and to be honest I’m just incredibly flattered to even have been thought of – although you’d always like to win it! There are some great local companies being recognised at these awards, and for me to be there alongside them is overwhelming. I’d like to wish everyone the best of luck, and I’m sure it will be a brilliant night for the award announcements in October!”
