In the build-up to the ceremony of the BIBAs 2016, we look back at some of the businesses and individuals which have stepped up to pick up the awards’ iconic trophy down the year.

Here we look back to 2011, when Lytham-based accountancy firm Danbro collected the Employer of the Year award.

When Damian Broughton and his wife, Helen, stepped onto the stage to accept the Employer of the Year award at the BIBAs in 2011, they had no idea how quick they would be back.

Danbro, the Blackpool-based specialist accountancy firm, followed this fantastic win by picking up the prestigious Business of the Year prize.

The double win capped 12 years of business success which saw the couple go from setting up in a small garage in Kirkham to running one of the UK’s fastest-growing firms.

Speaking after the awards, managing director Damian said: “We are thrilled to be winners of business and employer of the year.

“Our success boils down to the hard work that everyone puts in at Danbro and it’s great to be recognised at a prestigious event like the BIBAS.”
