Finalists announced for Fife Business Awards 2022

10th December 2021

The 2022 Fife Business Awards in association with Blackadders and Henderson Loggie received the highest ever number of applications. Of those applications, many were from businesses who had never applied before.

Previously a category sponsor, Henderson Loggie made the move to joint principal sponsor and Managing Partner David D Smith said of the sponsorship:

"We're delighted to be involved in recognising the talented individuals and businesses across Fife, who have shown incredible determination and spirit throughout these challenging times."

Fellow principal Sponsor Blackadders shared the view saying:

"Blackadders are pleased to sponsor the Fife Business Awards. The awards are an excellent opportunity to showcase and give recognition to the standout individuals and businesses who are making a great contribution to the region. We look forward to attending the awards ceremony and meeting all the nominees.”

The panel of 18 judges, all prominent business figures from across all sectors have spent 3 weeks meticulously sifting through 200 pages of Fife Business Awards applications, and the scores are in!

The judges agreed that the quality of applicants was outstanding, making the shortlisting process a very difficult one. They were impressed by the breadth of talent and success stemming from businesses of all shapes and sizes, across Fife, and they are very much looking forward to meeting the finalists over the coming months.
