Thames Valley 250 dinner recognises region’s top performers

An awards dinner was held last week to launch The Business Magazine’s 2018 TV250 listing, which ranks the Thames Valley’s top private companies by turnover.

As one of five sponsors, Henley Business School attended to celebrate the region’s business successes and present the Leadership Team of the Year award, which was won by MMR Research.

This year’s listing saw IT products supplier Westcoast overtake Thames Water for the number one spot, a major achievement for a home-grown Thames Valley company.

The full listing is available at:

An economic powerhouse

With combined sales of over £20 billion, TV250 businesses make a significant contribution to the national economy.

David Murray, publisher of The Business Magazine and the TV250, noted: “One interesting statistic that came out last year was that the economy of the greater Thames Valley actually dwarfs the economies of the so-called powerhouses like Greater Birmingham and Greater Manchester.”
