Award sends a clear message

Golden Charter has won a top industry award for Excellence in Communications.

The company had lots to celebrate at this year’s Glasgow Business Award at the Hilton Glasgow on Thursday 6 October.

Gordon Swan, Director of Communications at Golden Charter, said: “We were delighted to be shortlisted for the Excellence in Communications award, so to take it home on the night meant a great deal to us.

“A big part of our role is to engage with and inform independent funeral directors, and the two real drivers of that have been SAIFInsight and the Funeral Planner of the Year Awards. The magazine is in better shape than ever, and our surveying shows that more than 90% of Independents are reading it following our revamp. To have that work acknowledged is fantastic.”

The communications award is only the latest in a long line of recent successes for Golden Charter.

The company won Most Outstanding Business at the Glasgow Business Awards in 2014, and is listed in The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 league table of Britain’s fastest-growing companies for the second consecutive year. Last year, Golden Charter also secured Scottish and UK Institute of Directors Awards for CEO Ronnie Wayte and Chairman Magnus Swanson.

Ronnie Wayte said: “Our awards success is a reflection of the growth we have sustained over a number of years. To be recognised now for our innovative communications shows that we have another string to our bow.

“When working with trusted local businesses in a field like funeral planning, the quality of our work is paramount. This award helps show that we are serious about that quality and have the talent to do justice by our market leading position.”
