IFT Announces Award Winners

We are proud to announce this year’s winners of our prestigious Annual Awards, celebrating turnaround excellence across a range of companies and sectors.

The IFT Annual Awards, the most prestigious awards to celebrate business turnaround and the UK’s world class turnaround experts, recognises individuals and companies who have made an extraordinary contribution to UK plc and the turnaround profession.

The winners are as follows:

Large Company Turnaround of the Year – SIG Plc, the building supplies distributor, which has returned to robust profitability ahead of schedule, thanks to a transformation that got into the nuts and bolts of the business and in which leadership and employee engagement played a major role.

Mid-market Turnaround of the Year – Archant, the UK’s fourth largest media company. Thanks to a pioneering transformation plan, the key regional press player is on a path to growth.

SME Turnaround of the Year – Camvac Ltd. This manufacturing business specialising in metallising and lamination was an excellent example of a full business turnaround executed in an active manufacturing environment.

Community Impact Turnaround of the Year – Hovertravel picked up this award. Hovertravel provides a critical infrastructure link to access the Isle of Wight and is a company essential to the every-day lives of a community. Thanks to creative actions taken, the financial performance post-recovery now outperforms the pre-distress period.

In the firm categories:

Gateley Legal PLC picked up Legal Adviser of the Year, showing real commitment to championing new tools to provide new options for clients as well as promoting diversity across their workforce.
