The performance of a marketing agency over the past 12 months has been recognised by two nominations for a prize in the Halton Business Awards.

Aqueous Digital, which is based at Sutton Weaver, is a finalist in one of the Family Business of the Year categories.

Jonathan Guy, the company’s founder and managing director, is also among the contenders for Best Entrepreneur.

It marks a fourth successive year Aqueous has been has shortlisted.

“As always, it’s an honour for us to be recognised as one of the best in the region,” said Jonathan.

“We are particularly honoured to be included in the Family Business of the Year category because we have built Aqueous on a clear set of values and with a real family feel.

“To be nominated is welcome recognition for the hard work and dedication of everyone here.”

A judging panel will reach its verdict before a gala dinner at Halton Stadium later this month.

The annual showcase, hosted by Halton Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise, provides an opportunity to reward exceptional achievement by businesses operating from Widnes and Runcorn.

Aqueous was the outstanding candidate for marketing excellence two years ago, winning the award at the 2017 ceremony, before reaching the final again in the same section last time out.

Jonathan added: “To reach the final means a lot to us all.

“The team has doubled in size over the past year, helping us to create an environment that is both great to work in and also gives every individual an opportunity to develop both personally and professionally.”

Winners in the 2019 edition will be announced during the ceremony on Friday, November 15.
