Julie Hardy, who runs the successful Bedford Signs Express franchise with her husband Chris, was recently named as a finalist in the Bedfordshire Businesswoman of the Year award.
Being shortlisted in the franchise category, Julie was delighted to be nominated for the prestigious award. It comes just two months after the husband and wife team were shortlisted for a Special Achievement Award at the Signs Express biennial convention.
The awards nomination was part of the annual Bedfordshire Businesswomen (BBW) awards. The organisation was founded in 1988 and is a not-for-profit networking organisation for women who live and/or have business interests in the county.
Commenting on the award nomination Julie said, “I was delighted to hear I had been nominated for the award. The Bedfordshire Businesswomen organisation is a great way for likeminded business women in the region to come together to discuss experiences and network.”
