The title of Outstanding Brightonian was awarded to Mike Holland, who is one of Brighton’s best known entrepreneurs famous for buying the Engineerium and the restoration of Stanmer House.
Other big winners on the night were Hotel du Vin which was named best place to Entertain Your Clients and Neilson Active Holidays named best place to work whilst Spannerworks took the award for Business Growth.
Awards organisers worked with local experts in carbon balancing, CLevel, to deliver what is reputed to be the first awards ceremony of its kind in the south east to be carbon balanced. All food served at the event was locally sourced by the Hilton Metropole, thus further reducing the BAHBA carbon footprint.
Organisers of the BAHBAs reported a 30% in award entries and 33% increase in the number of companies taking part.
