WEBSITE development and on-line marketing firm Purpose Media has chosen to sponsor one of the categories at this year’s Chad’s Business Awards.

The business, based near Junction 28 of the M1, is sponsoring the Retailer of the Year section in the fourth edition of our awards, which aim to find and reward the very best companies and entrepreneurs in Mansfield and Ashfield.

Managing director Matt Wheatcroft said he wanted to see a retail business rewarded for its efforts in a difficult economic climate.

“Purpose Media has chosen to sponsor the award for ‘Retailer of the Year’ to recognise a retail business, that despite these tough economic times, has shown high levels of customer service, an innovative approach to building the strength of their business and ambitious but realistic plans or ideas to help grow over the next few years,” Matt said.

Purpose Media was founded in 2009 and was originally based on developing brochure-style content managed sites for local businesses.

In April this year, the company moved from Mansfield’s i-Centre to new offices located on the A38 near Junction 28 due to significant growth in demand from retailers wanting to develop e-commerce websites.

This year’s Chad Business Awards ceremony will be held on Thursday 22nd November with a glittering event at the John Fretwell Sporting Complex at Sookholme, where the best of the area’s business community will be showcased and celebrated.

The black tie event will see guests enjoy a champagne reception, four-course meal and ceremony.

Tickets for the awards evening are on sale now, tables of 10 can be purchased for £500 plus vat and individual tickets are £50 plus vat per person.

There are some top awards up for grabs, ranging from Business Personality of the Year to The Environment Award and most Most Innovative Property/Building Development.
