Bearsden business nominated for an award

Bearsden-based firm Golden Charter Ltd is hoping to strike gold again, after being nominated for Best Performing Business with more than 51 employees at the Glasgow Business Awards next month.

Last year, the later life planning experts were awarded the title along with the most prestigious accolade of the evening, the Bank of Scotland Award for Most Outstanding Business.

“Our success last year helped us attract more exceptional people to Golden Charter, opened new doors to us and reinforced our belief in our ability to grow our business across the UK.”

Stuart Patrick, chief executive of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce said: “All the finalists for this year’s awards would be worthy winners, so this should be another exciting contest. The ceremony is a key event in business community’s calendar, allowing us to celebrate the success of a diverse range of sectors across Glasgow and the West of Scotland.
