“When I launched Denwa from my back bedroom, I never expected it would lead to awards like this,” admitted managing director Rob Scott as he took to the stage at the BIBAs 2012 to collect two prizes.
His firm, Denwa Communications, based in Barrowford in Pendle, collected the Employer of the Year and the Small Business of the Year at the ceremony having enjoyed double-digit growth in every one of its first six years in business.
It picked up clients including Easyjet, LoveFilm and the Royal Navy as well as a turnover of more than £2m.
Speaking after the BIBAs ceremony, Rob said: “To win one award at the BIBAs would have been an amazing achievement, but to win two was incredible and it left me speechless to be perfectly honest.
“It was particularly satisfying to be named Lancashire’s top employer because I personally take great pride in creating the right ethos at Denwa.
“Our whole philosophy is built around the saying ‘if you enjoy what you do, then you will never have to work a day in your life’.”
The success continued in 2013 when Denwa was shortlisted for Small Business of the Year category at the BIBAs with its managing director among the nominees for the Entrepreneur of the Year prize.
