Licensing solicitors Poppleston Allen is delighted to have sponsored the Business Leader of the Year award at last nights (March 13) Publicans 2018 Awards; a highly coveted award scooped by Chris Hill, CEO of New World Trading Company.

This wasn’t the only award the pub company took home from the glittering ceremony hosted by TV personality Rob Brydon, as they also picked up: Best Drinks Offer, Best Pub Employer and Best Pub Operations Team.

Lisa Sharkey, Managing Partner at Poppleston Allen comments: “It was certainly a night to remember for New World Trading Company. Winning four awards in an industry that has such strong competition is no mean feat.”

Lisa continues: “The night was also a huge success for some of our clients, too.  Fullers took home Best Managed Pub Company (51+ sites), Toby Carvery won Best Value Food offering and Stonegate Pub Company were crowned Best Late Night Operator.”

The partnership allows the firm to build on its profile as the licensing firm of choice for pubs and other licensed premises operating today.

Ed Bedington, editor of the Morning Advertiser, which operates the awards, said: "It’s been a brilliant night and we’re really pleased to be able to recognise and reward such excellent businesses . The event is all about celebrating some of the great work and companies that we have across the pub sector, and all our finalists and winners here tonight are a credit to the industry as a whole.”
