2 November 2021

A very strong line-up of finalists for the 12th annual Thames Valley 250 awards has been announced.

The Thames Valley 250 is a listing comprised of the top privately-owned businesses (by turnover) headquartered in the region, which is defined as Oxfordshire, Berkshire, West Surrey, North Hampshire and parts of Buckinghamshire. The private award event returns after being postponed in 2020 owing to Covid-19.

Thames Valley 250 sponsors BDO, Gateley Legal, Nouveau Solutions and Dowgate Wealth will reveal the winners in eight categories during a special awards dinner at Easthampstead Park, Wokingham, on 18 November.

Peter Laurie, Senior Adviser at event organiser The Business Magazine, said: “The judges were impressed by the quality of entries during such a challenging and uncertain period. Once again, Thames Valley businesses have shown real strength in their growth, innovation and leadership. We look forward to welcoming all guests to this evening of celebration".
