Isles born entrepreneur scoops ‘new start’ business award
A young businessman from Shetland has won the “New Start Business of the Year” at a national awards ceremony.
Gavin Bell now lives in Edinburgh and runs a social media agency there called Blue Cliff Media.
Mr Bell, the son of Shetland Islands Council convener Malcolm Bell, moved south to study in Manchester, aged 18, before moving to Edinbugh in 2014.
And his company picked up the gong at the WeDo Business Awards on Friday. The event was held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel with more than 180 Scottish entrepreneurs in attendance.
Mr Bell said: “It’s an absolute honour to have won New Start Business of the Year. I launched Blue Cliff Media 18 months ago now and to have our achievements formally recognised is amazing. It gives me the confidence that what we’re doing is actually working and sets us in good stead going into 2017!”
