Smart10 won the New Business of the Year Award 2013

RothamstedThe judges said: “Smart10 has demonstrated over 100 per cent growth in its key financials, revenues and profits, whilst at the same time investing capital back into the business and wider community”

Claire Brindle, Director of Smart10, said: “After last year’s triumph with the Judges’ Award, we wondered if we could maintain our progress, so to be nominated was amazing, but to win was the icing on the cake. We’re just ecstatic.

“It’s not about one person, you are only as good as your team and we’re lucky to have a dedicated, loyal and committed team. It’s great to be recognised as a business and as individuals at Hertfordshire’s business Oscars.”

Claire is very excited about the future of Smart10 Ltd, and as a business it has plans to expand yet again in early 2014.
