Business awards for STC members Silverstone Park & Longhurst

Silverstone Technology Cluster

8th November 2019

STC members Silverstone Park and Longhurst Ltd both collected awards at the recent SME South Northamptonshire Business Awards.

MEPC’s Silverstone Park business estate, a founding member of the STC, was runner-up in the South Northants Business of the Year category.

Independent financial planner Longhurst – a regular contributor to the STC website – won the award for Best Website.

Meanwhile, Silverstone Park Commercial Director and STC Chair Roz Bird was also a finalist in the Business Person of the Year as was another of the estate’s occupiers and fellow Cluster member, tech recruitment agency TD Group, in the Customer Service category.

Roz commented: “It’s six years since MEPC took over management of Silverstone Park and to come so close to a ‘best business’ award at a highly recognised event is further recognition of the huge strides that have been made in that time in developing the estate into a global business destination.

“Many congratulations to winner of the award Fortitude Financial Planning and also to Longhurst and TD Group for reaching the finals – it was great to see Chris Broome collecting the Best Website award on behalf of Longhurst.

“Another ‘well done’ as well to Nuovo, whose team shared the same table and picked up the Best Restaurant award.”

Longhurst’s Chris Broome, who is also behind the ‘Inside Silverstone’ business podcasts, said: “I couldn’t be happier to announce that our business won the Best Website of the Year award.

“The financial services industry isn’t renowned for producing colourful and life-focused content. We’re delighted that the judges liked our genuinely refreshing approach.”
