We are delighted to announce that our winner of the Business Person of the Year Award at The Cherwell Business Awards 2020 is Jolyon Bennett of Juice Global Ltd.

Jolyon was chosen as the winner by our judges for his exceptional hard work and dedication to creating and building his business, and his extraordinary passion for creating new and sustainable products.

Charlotte Toemaes, Corporate Services Partner and Director of the Cherwell Business Awards, said:

“Talking to Jolyon and learning about how he had built Juice from scratch was truly inspiration. He has single handed grown Juice into a multimillion pound, international business and is now developing sustainable products and packaging, which could be a game changer across the world.”

The other finalists were Ryan Breslin of Cherwell Windows and David Cooper of One Man Band who both demonstrated great leadership and innovative ideas to develop and differentiate their businesses.

Charlotte continued:

“This year we saw an extremely high standard of applications which made judging the Business Person of the Year Award incredibly difficult. All three of our finalists showed great passion for developing their businesses and demonstrated how they are thinking outside the box in these changing times.”

The 9th Cherwell Business Awards took place on Friday 11 December in a virtual awards ceremony for the very first time due to the coronavirus pandemic. Throughout the evening 10 awards were given out to businesses across the Cherwell District. To see the full list of winners, visit the Cherwell Business Awards website.
