Part of the Fennel Group, owned by local entrepreneur William Bird, its sister company Fennel Restaurant also received the gong for Best Inverurie Business for the second consecutive year, while it was also a finalist for Best Restaurant.

Now in its second year, Scotland’s Business Awards recognise the country’s leading independent companies. As regional winners, both Fennel Media and Fennel Restaurant will represent the north-east at the national finals to be held at Glasgow’s Marriott Hotel on Sunday, May 28.

Jo McIntosh, operations manager at Fennel Media, said: “We’re thrilled to have received this award, and particularly as a start-up company, are proud to help carry the torch for the north-east business community at the grand final in May.

“While the business is still relatively new, we have received a tremendous response from clients and other stakeholders for our level of professionalism and creativity. Hopefully this award win is the first of many to follow for the business!”

Based at the Thainstone Business Centre, near Inverurie, Fennel Media provides full video production, UAV survey and inspection, photography, audio visual rental and installation, animation, and 3D modelling – all of which are bespoke and tailored to suit individual clients’ needs.
