Grimsby catering equipment dealer Sylvester Keal is hoping to taste double glory next month after being nominated for two local business awards.
The distributor has been shortlisted for the North East Lincolnshire Economic Investment Award, while company director Irene Keal is one of three people in the running for the Business Person of the Year award.
Keal has been with Sylvester Keal for 10 years and is responsible for HR, marketing, sales and accreditations. She also oversees the company’s membership of CEDA and its quality assurance standards.
Nominees were chosen by three teams of judges and decisions were made by majority decision, with the winners set to be announced at a gala dinner in Scunthorpe on 17 May.
A film crew was recently sent to the distributor’s premises to produce a video will which be played at the presentation dinner.
Keal said the company was delighted to be shortlisted in two categories. “This is fantastic news for us. It shows that by adopting our company visions and values we actually have what it takes to be up there in lights with some very high profile and substantially larger companies than ourselves. It also proves our commitment and dedication to being the best for our customers.”
The Northern Lincolnshire Business Awards are organised by the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce.
Family-owned Sylvester Keal has been operating for more than 25 years, providing commercial kitchen equipment services to customers in a range of sectors.
