Cambridge-based software consultancy and St John’s Innovation Centre Tenant, Green Custard has been crowned Business of the Year (less than 50 employees) at the at SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards 2019. But that's not all, they scooped the Overall Winner gong too!

"Thrilled to win, especially the second award which was a huge surprise. Great for our team to get the recognition they deserve, and it motivates us to keep improving for our staff, partners, and customers." - Jonathan Custance, Director, Green Custard.

The SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards help raise the profile of industrious, hardworking and enterprising SMEs - with 20 categories creating almost 100 finalists from across the region.

Delighted to have been named a finalist for the Business of the Year category, the team donned their tuxedos and gowns and headed to the stunning Duxford Imperial War Museum for the glitzy ceremony on 4th July.

On hearing the words "and the winner is ... Green Custard!" they jumped out of their seats and were totally overwhelmed at winning their category which is awarded to businesses showing outstanding initiative, boldness and imagination. The excitement of the evening didn't end there, the Green Custard team were welcomed back to the stage as it was announced that they had won the most prestigious award of the evening ... Overall Winner 2019!

“A very interesting and exciting business, a clear winner for us.” - a judge for the SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards

Both wins took the team totally by surprise and they are over the moon to have taken two awards back to the office after entering only one! This achievement really couldn't have come at a better time as Green Custard is currently celebrating their 10th business anniversary too.

“Although Jonathan and I founded the company 10 years ago, these awards are the result of the fantastic work of our team - I’m extremely proud of them.” - James Green, Director, Green Custard

James and Jonathan would like to thank all of their employees, customers, partners, friends and family for making this all possible. They also congratulate their fellow winners and finalists too, commenting on how many talented business owners were in the room.

The next stop for team GC? Wembley! They are now up for Business of the Year at the SME National Business Awards 2019 which are being held in December 2019.
