Danaher & Walsh scoops Family Business of the Year award

Danaher & Walsh Group has won the Family Business of the Year award at the Leicester Mercury Business Awards 2019.

The award was presented by TV funnyman Mark Dolan and Olympic medalist Gail Emms MBE at a gala dinner. The event at Leicester's Maher Centre was attended by around 600 people from the Leicestershire business community.

Additionally, Danaher & Walsh Group was a finalist in the overall Company of the Year category, which was eventually won by multi-disciplinary architectural and consultancy practice RG+P.

The Leicester Mercury Business Awards aim to celebrate success, recognise achievement and highlight the innovative people and companies throughout Leicestershire, who are putting the region on the map while making a positive contribution to the local community.

Speaking about the award, Managing Director Dan Danaher said: "We're very grateful to have been awarded Family Business of the Year, especially this particular year, as we're celebrating our 50th anniversary.

"Whilst we continue to grow significantly as a business, we still maintain a strong family ethos. It's very pleasing to be recognised for this."
