Furniture Village’s Charlie Harrison recognised as future leader
Furniture Village’s commercial director, Charlie Harrison, has been presented with a Next Generation Award by Family Business United in recognition of the significant contribution he has made to the family business.
After being shortlisted with eight other future family business leaders, Harrison’s “drive, passion and commitment” was recognised as outstanding by a panel of expert judges, who made the announcement at an awards dinner at Pennyhill Park Hotel.
Family Business United’s managing director Paul Andrews said: “It’s an absolute honour to present Charlie with the Next Generation Award. Family businesses would not exist if it were not for the underlying involvement of families and individuals within these businesses, notably the next generation as they step up to take on various roles as the business and the family look to the future.
“Charlie’s commitment to Furniture Village over the last 20 years has been quite honestly outstanding and it’s clear that he’s played an enormous role in both the success and growth of the business and will continue to do so in the years to come. ”
This latest award joins three further Family Business Award trophies that were scooped by Furniture Village earlier this year. These included Supreme Champion Family Business of the Year, Retail Family Business of the Year and London & South East Family Business.
Harrison added: “This year marks my 20th anniversary at Furniture Village. Working alongside my father, day in day out for the past 20 years has been one of the greatest privileges of my life. I’ve learned from the best. It’s an honour to steer the business into the next generation, doing right by our customers, our suppliers, our partners and our planet. It’s been a phenomenal ride, here’s to the next 20!”
