Swansea teen recognised at esteemed family business awards
Thomas Design, a digital and print design agency based in Swansea, is celebrating the recognition of one of its own at this year’s prestigious Red Ribbon Awards at Wembley Stadium.
Josh Thomas, son of managing director Damian Thomas, has been presented with Highly Commended for Excellence in the One to Watch category.
Josh was shortlisted as a regional finalist earlier this year, representing Wales and his family’s company.
The awards took place on 15 July, and saw family business leaders from across the UK congregate to celebrate the achievements of their nominees.
Currently in its seventh consecutive year, the Red Ribbon Awards has become one of the most sought after accolades for family businesses across the country. The awards aim to recognise the contribution of enterprising families and entrepreneurs. Previous winners include: Michael Roux Junior, Pimlico Plumbers and East End Foods.
Josh said that he was thrilled about the news, commenting:
“I’m so surprised. It was a shock to be placed in the final, but to come highly commended is a huge honour and I’m so proud of the business that we have built as a family. It just goes to show how much you can achieve.”
Damian Thomas, Josh’s father, said:
“I’m ecstatic for Josh, it’s a huge testament to his hard work, and I know he’s going to do great things for our business. I’m incredibly proud of him.”
Over the last 12 months, Thomas Design has doubled its turnover and has grown its customer base by approximately 35 percent. It provides a full digital offering to its clients, including web design, graphic and print design, and online marketing.
