We’re excited here at Posterhaste HQ to be a finalist at The National Family Business Awards - which are held at Wembley Stadium this Saturday!
The awards were founded 10 years ago to honour and celebrate the 4.8 million family-owned businesses in the UK.
Our company is a family business at its core, run by married couple Sam and Keira Willis. Posterhaste was launched more than seven years ago in a whirlwind year the co-founders. They were married in summer 2012, development started on the website in September and Posterhaste was trading from December that year.
The idea for the business came after Sam and Keira couldn't find the exact print they wanted for their living room - after much complaining, window-shopping and designing, Posterhaste was born!
The Lincolnshire-based company has been selected as a finalist in the retail category of The National Family Business Awards, held on July 13. More than 100 finalists from all four corners of the UK and Ireland will go head to head across 10 categories, judged by an independent panel.
“We’re thrilled to be recognised in these important awards - family at the heart of Posterhaste, and is core to the whole operation.” says Sam.
Keira adds: “We’ve welcomed family members onboard as the company has grown and there are incredible benefits to working with people you are close to. It’s great to see the efforts of family businesses recognised in this way, and we’re so pleased to have been shortlisted.”
