The fourth annual award ceremony, held in association with Societe Generale Private Banking, is due to take place in Rome on 23 June. The gala event will celebrate family businesses and their leaders that display the best virtues for successful enterprises: stability, longevity and sustainability.
The six categories this year, including a new award Top Next Generation Entrepreneur, are:
- Top family business
- Top family business leader
- Top family business rising star
- Top next generation entrepreneur
- Top non-family director
- Top sustainable business
The selection process will begin by offering the readership of CampdenFB the opportunity to propose top companies/leaders in each category. Click here to vote.
A team of senior business school professors and CampdenFB’s editor will then decide a shortlist, which the eventual winners will be selected from. The judges will look at the performance of the companies/individuals in each category and commitment to the family business model.
Nicholas Moody, editor of CampdenFB and member of the judging panel, said: “We’re excited to be celebrating the fourth year of our European Families in Businesses – which champions those truly innovative and enterprising businesses that are powering the European economy.
“We know there are many fascinating businesses out there that deserve their time in the limelight so we’re calling on all readers to get involved by sending in your nominations by the end of February”.
The event is being held in conjunction with Campden Wealth’s European Families in Business Conference, which features a range of high-profile family speakers including Marco Emilio Lavazza, vice president of Italian coffee manufacturer Lavazza SpA, Anna Fendi and Philippe Lacoste.
Public nominations will remain open on the awards site for the next seven weeks, closing on 27 February.
