First Names Group triumphs at Jersey Business Awards

19 May 2015

We are proud to announce that First Names Group has been crowned Large Enterprise of the Year in the Jersey Business 2015 Awards for Enterprise.

The Jersey Business Awards for Enterprise is considered the premier business event on the Island, recognising and celebrating the very best of Jersey business.

The title of ‘Large Enterprise of the Year’, sponsored by States of Jersey Economic Development, was awarded to First Names Group during a glittering gala evening on Friday, 15 May at the Royal Jersey Showground. The vibrant event marked the end of this year’s Enterprise Week and showcased some of Jersey’s most enterprising organisations with seven different awards presented throughout the night.

For each award, a separate judging panel independently analysed each entry and scored them against specific criteria designed to assess attributes exhibited by best practice organisations in the category.

Ben Newman, Managing Director of First Names Jersey, said of the win:

"We are absolutely delighted to have won the award for Large Enterprise of the Year. With Jersey being our new head office and with over 200 ‘First Names’ based in Jersey, winning this award is very significant to us. This award is a welcome testament to the hard work we as a Group have put in since rebranding two years ago, and to the success of our people philosophy on which our business and brand have been founded.”
