Edwin Ellis Creative Media Director Stacey Barnfield is celebrating being named Businessman of the Year at the Birmingham Awards 2019.
Now in their fifth year, The Birmingham Awards celebrate the best of the city’s entrepreneurism and commitment to the regional business community. Broken into categories covering small business, leisure and hospitality, venues and arts and culture, they attract hundreds of nomination and thousands of public votes.
This year’s event was held at The Library of Birmingham with the new-look Centenary Square, HSBC and the Big Wheel providing a stunning backdrop.
Stacey, who founded Edwin Ellis with co-director Catherine Hendrick four years ago, would like to thank the judges and voters for honouring him with the award.
He said: “As a born and bred Brummie simply being nominated for such a prestigious award in my home city was fantastic. To then win the category of Businessman of the Year is extra special. I’m over the moon.
“Knowing first-hand the highs and lows of launching and running a small business during turbulent economic times, I congratulate all my fellow finalists and winners at the Birmingham Awards. They deserve their moment in the spotlight.”
