Newport business woman named 'Entrepreneur of the Year'
Jan Hopkinson, Managing Director of Smart Training and Recruitment, was awarded the coveted title at the Langtry Manor Venus Awards ceremony in Bournemouth, beating off stiff competition from over 60 nominations.
Jan has been at the helm of the Newport based business for the past ten years. Having built up the business from scratch, the company now operates nationally in nine regions across the country employing over 150 full time staff.
“The Award isn’t just about me. I’m immensely proud to share this award with a strong, passionate and committed team who continue to strive to move forward with dedication, loyalty and commitment that has been the benchmark for our continued success at Smart. I would also like to thank our employers and learners for their support of our business without whom we couldn’t have achieved 10,000 successfully qualified apprentices the company has delivered to date”.
Congratulations to Jan.
