Online PR News – 28-October-2010 – – A Taunton businessman who has raised his two children over the last nine years as a single parent while leading his business start up into a multi-million pound company has taken two honours at The Somerset Business Awards.
Jeremy Hyams, the Chief Executive Officer of Property Consortium UK, has been awarded The Albert Goodman Entrepreneur of the Year accolade at the Somerset Business Awards – while his business took the Somerset Business of the Year title for more than 50 employees.
The entreprenuer award was presented to 42-year-old Jeremy in recognition of his positive role as a ‘Dadpreneur’ - balancing caring for his children while keeping his business on a growth curve.
Operating from Culmhead Business Park, Jeremy’s business has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 1996 – growing into three separate but interlinked companies – Property Consortium UK, Building Claims Services and Property Consortium Drainage.
The businesses turnover is now in excess of £12million and employs almost 80 people.
Awarding the second title, of Somerset Business of the Year, judges recognised the high-level Investment placed on staff training, commitment to the environment and the management team’s clear vision of the business’s strategic direction – namely to be the market-leading property repair service for the insurance industry.
Jeremy said: “I’m absolutely over the moon. To win two titles came as a complete shock.
“The success is testimony to the hard work of the team here.”
