THE big prize of the night was awarded to Havant firm Dynamite Recruitment, which left the ceremony as winners of the Overall Business of the Year trophy.
The firm won two awards – the first award of the night, which was Small/Medium Business of the Year, and then Team of the Year.
The winner of each category is put forward for the overall award, with the judges making a decision on which one has impressed across the board.
Business owner Matt Fox, who set up the company just a year ago, said: ‘We’re absolutely ecstatic.
‘I don’t really know what to say, apart from thank you to the judges for giving this to us. I’m absolutely speechless, this is amazing.
‘I cannot tell you how pleased we all are – just overjoyed.’
The judges praised the firm, with BAE Systems’ Cat Thorogood saying: ‘It’s not just about making money for them, it’s about making sure their clients are well supported and their staff are well looked after.
‘They seem like an excellent company to work for.’
