Lion Joins Sir Richard Branson at Home for Awards Dinner

The Directors of LION Trackhire were guests at last night’s prestigious conference and awards dinner organised by Sir Richard Branson at his Oxfordshire home.

The event was to celebrate the country’s top 100 fastest growing private companies as recognised by The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 organisation.

Late last year LION Trackhire were listed at No.26 ahead of some of Britain’s business elite but were doubly surprised yesterday to find they came runner up for the ‘Best management team’ award.

Carl Springthorpe LION’s Chairman explained that the event was bristling with Britain’s sharpest entrepreneurs and said the whole event was alive with a passion for business opportunity. Growth in export was high on the agenda and there were some great keynotes and panel sessions from the likes of Matt Brittin (Google Europe), Richard Reed (Innocent) and of course Sir Richard himself.

Coincidentally, LION Trackhire supplied Trakway for the event and Dale Robinson, MD of LION said “LION are investing heavily into export into Europe and I’m proud to say we’ve installed some brand new Trakway for Sir Richard today, so the whole thing has been a huge success for us”.
