Vistech celebrating region’s new Community Champions

The inaugural Best New Tees Business Awards will be a “brilliant” event to “inspire” the next generation of new businesses and entrepreneurs, says the MD of a firm that’s sponsoring the Community Champions category.

Organised by Tees Business in association with PD Ports, the awards will take place within the marquee of Kirkleatham Walled Garden, near Redcar, on the evening of Thursday November 11.

The awards attracted more than 100 entries and nominations – and category sponsors have now chosen the final three in each category.

Vistech is sponsoring a Best New Community Champions category which will see Beth Hodgson’s Redcar Cleveland & Beyond, Kay Coleman & Associates and Engineering Together fighting for the winners’ gong.

Vistech managing director Chris Taylor said: “Celebrating the best new businesses in our area will inspire those future entrepreneurs and employers.

“We chose to sponsor the Community Champions Award specifically as Vistech is very much a company which invests in and gives back to the local community.”

Client relationship manager Danielle Butler added: “Vistech is proud to be part of in inaugural Best New Business Awards and the Community Champions Award is a perfect fit for with all the charitable and community-based work we carry out.

“Vistech is very much at the heart of the Teesside community which goes hand-in-hand with being one of the area’s largest employers.”
