Magenta wins the Sussex Small Business of the Year award

The team is excited to announce that we have won a Sussex Business Award (SBA) for ‘Small Business of the Year’!

The announcement was made last night (30th November 2017) at a lavish awards ceremony at The Grand hotel in Brighton. The Small Business of the Year award, sponsored by Sussex Chamber of Commerce, recognises business excellence across Sussex.


The Sussex Business Awards are the longest established of their kind in the county and widely considered to be ‘the one to win’. Magenta faced fierce competition in this category from Juno Wealth Management and ViiSana Limited. Commended for its energy, business strategy, growth and dedication to ensuring its clients receive the best possible service and results, Magenta was crowned winner.


At the event, David Sheppard of the Sussex Chamber of Commerce announced the news and presented the Magenta team with one of the seventeen coveted trophies up for grabs this year. With the glamorous backdrop of The Grand, an iconic and luxury independent hotel standing centre stage on Brighton’s famous seafront, the SBAs proved their place yet again as the event of the year for businesses along the south coast.


“I’m absolutely elated to have won this award,” said Cathy Hayward, managing director of Magenta. “To go from a one-woman-band at my kitchen table seven years ago to what we have now is testament to the team that I’m so lucky to work with. We’re all delighted and excited about the next chapter, exploring new ways of helping ourselves and our clients be the best that we can be.”
