Purpose wins regional awards

Bondholder Purpose Media is celebrating its success at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) Awards for the East Midlands after scooping the High Growth Business of the Year title.

It won the award after scooping the East Midlands Chamber's Outstanding Growth Performance award for Derbyshire, and will now go on to represent the region in the BCC's national business awards in London on 24th November.

The firm won the award following a solid period of business expansion over the past couple of years, which saw it launch a new creative arm after acquiring assets from former Derby-based design agency, Revolver Revolver, and a new video division, following its merger with A-Star Media earlier this year.

Matt Wheatcroft, Managing Director at Purpose Media, commented: "It's been a great 12 months for us, which has seen us double in size, both in terms of headcount and turnover, so it's great to be honoured not only locally by East Midlands Chamber, but also nationally by the BCC. We look forward to going down to London to represent the region in November."

Chief Executive of East Midlands Chamber, Scott Knowles, added: "The Chamber awards are the only business awards in the region delivered purely by business for business and are also the only awards which offer the winners the chance to share their stories on the national stage."
