The Scottish winner of the High Growth Business of the Year was revealed as Microsoft 365 consultancy Appetite for Business, who will now represent the region at the UK national finals held on May 19, 2022 at the Radisson Blu in Glasgow.

The Aberdeen based consultancy received the accolade at the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Awards ceremony that took place at the Waldorf Astoria in Edinburgh on 31st of March 2022.

Each year, the FSB celebrates the achievements and contributions of smaller businesses with up to 250 employees and the self-employed through its UK awards scheme.

Following the event Sheryl Newman CEO at Appetite for Business commented:

“We really didn’t expect to win given the other fantastic businesses in our category, it was a real surprise. Nothing happens without good people, and I am incredibly proud of the whole team for their tenacity and hard work and dedication to our customers.”

Over the last two years the firm, which was set-up in 2016 by Sheryl has achieved strong growth, increasing its revenue by almost 100pc. The team at Appetite for Business work with SME and high growth businesses to realise the benefits of digital transformation for business process automation using Microsoft 365 technologies. By creating streamlined scalable operations to improve business results, Appetite for Business are helping companies reduce costs, drive business improvement, enhance the customer and employee experience, and ultimately establish data-driven organisations.

David Groundwater, Development Manager FSB, North East Scotland commented, “CEO, Sheryl Newman has led the business from strength-to strength since its launch in 2016. But our judges were blown away by the significant growth in the last few years and the recognition of the need for digital transformation faced by so many companies. Sheryl and the team at AFB have been successful in crafting digital solutions allowing clients to stay connected, save money and boost productivity at a time of great change. I wish them every success in the UK finals in May.
