Devon marketing agency shortlisted for Exmouth Business Awards

Straight Marketing is one of three Exmouth businesses which has been shortlisted for the ‘Best Professional Services Company’ award in the inaugural Exmouth Business Awards.

The Exmouth Business Awards are a joint venture between the Exmouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce and the Exmouth Journal. The idea behind the awards is to reward businesses of all shapes and sizes – ranging from the biggest to the small independent retailer.

Alison Jobson, Director of Straight Marketing, comments: “We are delighted to have been recognised as a reputable business in Exmouth and shortlisted for this award. There is a thriving business community in Exmouth but it is often overshadowed by Exeter and forgotten about. We are pleased to see Exmouth businesses being acknowledged in this way and think it delivers a very positive message for business in Exmouth.”

The Exmouth Business Awards were open to all businesses within the Exmouth boundaries with eight categories up for grabs.

The nominations were judged by the Editor of the Exmouth Journal, Phil Griffin, the Chairman of Exmouth Chamber, Ian MacQueen, Exmouth Chamber Executive Member, Nigel Wilkinson and the Principal of Exmouth Community College, Tony Alexander.

Commenting after the judging Ian McQueen said: “The judges had a difficult time whittling down the entries – some of the sections were extremely competitive.”

The winners will be announced at an awards dinner at Exmouth Pavilion on Friday 26 April 2013.
