Business leaders and VIPs joined vehicle leasing and fleet management specialists Neva Consultants to celebrate the refurbishment of their head office in Piltdown and business award success.
Guests included Nus Ghani, MP for Wealden, and Cllr Barby Dashwood-Morris, chairman of Wealden District Council and other representatives from Wealden Council, East Sussex County Council and Uckfield Chamber of Commerce.
The event was originally planned to celebrate the head office refurbishment but became a double celebration after the company’s success in the Lewes and Wealden Business Awards.
Neva Consultants won Medium size Business of the Year, The Innovation Award and the Overall Business of the Year, the main award of the evening.
Guests enjoyed a buffet lunch and were able to meet staff and learn more about the business.
Neva Consultants senior partner Graham Prince said: “I am grateful to all those who gave up their valuable time to attend and share out celebration.
“We are very proud of how the company has grown. We have increased in size from 16 employees in 2013 and will have 22 full-time staff by the end of this year.
“We have grown the number of vehicles supplied on their leasing and finance packages from 1,400 in 2013 and are on target to supply in excess of 2,000 in 2015 – which is 40 per cent growth.”
Mr Prince added: “Our success is down to the hard work of all our staff and with the economic climate remaining positive for the next few years we are confident that the company should continue to grow.”
Neva Consultants will represent the Lewes and Wealden region in a gala finals night, to be held in October, when all the winners of regional awards across Hampshire, Sussex and Kent go head to head at The Grand Hotel in Brighton.
