We are delighted to say that our director, Joseph Barsby was triumphant at the Niche Business Awards on Friday night. The awards celebrate outstanding Leicestershire businesses and business professionals and Joseph was a finalist in the Young Entrepreneur category.
Entrants had to be 35 years or younger before the closing date at the end of May to enter this award and will have exceptional achievements, and their journey will show their ability to overcome obstacles and identify new opportunities. Joseph was up against some tough competition for the award but came out as the overall winner.
Joseph is a director at G. Seller & Co, the last remaining independent funeral directors serving the communities in and around Hinckley at their time of need and has truly embraced his role as a business leader. As the third generation of the family to lead the business Joseph is putting his stamp on the business and spearheading a significant investment for the future with a major development of their premises alongside numerous other improvements to further enhance the service that they offer to families. Whilst he may be young, he is focused on the future and the business will continue to reap the benefits for generations to come.
As Joseph explains, “It is a real honour to be recognised as the Young Entrepreneur of the Year and I am delighted to accept the award. I was not expecting to win but to do so is fantastic! No recipient can ignore the fact that there is always a team that help to make the sort of changes that we are currently undertaking and whilst I am personally thrilled with the award, I need to recognise the ongoing endeavours and support of my wife, our family and the incredible team that we work with on a daily basis. We are a ‘family’ and work together to continue to enhance and improve every aspect of our service and I am incredibly proud of the standards that we maintain. Winning this award is fantastic and I am personally honoured to have been awarded the title this year.”
“Niche Magazine put on a fabulous evening and to come away a winner was the icing on the cake!”
