THE MOTHERSHIP GROUP WIN PRESTIGIOUS AWARD
It was great night for Liverpool based The Mothership Group last Thursday, when they took home an award at the ‘Regional Business Awards 2015’.
The Mothership Group were victorious as ‘Newcomer of the year’ at the event held at St Georges Hall in Liverpool. The judges were impressed by their unique approach to building businesses, and the impressive rate at which they have launched four new business propositions in just 12 months.
500 of Merseyside’s movers and shakers attended the event, with other winners including: Liverpool Airport and Jaguar Land Rover, to name a few.
Group CEO Lorna Davidson commented: “It’s a great achievement to win this fantastic award. When we started the business, just 12 months ago, our key objective was to launch businesses that disrupt markets, solving commercial problems, and improving the sectors in which they operate. We are extremely proud of the work that we have achieved in such a short space of time.”
Just earlier this year Red Wigwam, the group’s temporary recruitment company, was recognised by the ‘Everline Future 50 2015 list’ as one of the countries most disruptive businesses.
Continued Lorna: “All of the five directors within the business are successful entrepreneurs in their own right and have made their mark in previous roles. Collectively we bring our experience, knowledge and ideas together to develop all of the businesses within The Mothership Group.”
Those businesses include; Red Wigwam, FMCG Talent, connecting future business leaders in the consumer sector with employers and mentors who can support their development, My Perfect Shop, an on-line portal, app and hub network which enables the UK’s circa 50,000 convenience stores and brands to connect with each other and the communities they serve, Jammy Pet, a monthly hamper of treats, toys and health products aimed at the 13 million UK households with pets, and, finally, Graham Fifteen, originally conceived as an internal marketing service for the group but is now also delivering outstanding work for external clients.
The group has also set up a charity, The Mothership Foundation, created to give something back to the local community. In 2014 the foundation – alongside Frederick’s Foundation – set up and launched a Liverpool hub which funds and supports local businesses that need funding and support.
Concludes Lorna: “It doesn’t stop here, we are already researching other ideas to realise our ambition to invest and bring to market two other companies as part of The Mothership Group, using capital and profit raised from the current businesses. We are also aiming to take one of the current businesses to market, giving others the opportunity to own and run an already successful business and for us to move onto the next challenge”.
