The fourth annual English Asian Business Awards presented by Lloyds Banking Group took place on Monday 8th June 2015, where the winners were revealed at a glamorous ceremony at the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel.
The classy black tie event acknowledged and celebrated the accomplishments, determination and hard work of professionals and organisations from the Asian business community across England.

The 2015 English Asian Business Awards presented by Lloyds Banking Group were hosted by BBC Radio Leicester Assistant Editor, Kamlesh Purohit.

“This is one of the reasons why Lloyds Banking Group has pledged to grow our lending to SMEs by at least £1 billion every year until the end of 2017, to support UK businesses and help them achieve their growth ambitions.”
