John Mason International Movers Named Finalist from Over 5,000 Companies in 2024 Great British Entrepreneur Awards

John Mason International Movers is delighted to announce that it has been named as a finalist for the 2024 Allica Bank Great British Entrepreneur Awards. Selected from over 5,000 entrants and now in a shortlist of just six companies, this recognition in the highly competitive Established Business of the Year category highlights our unwavering commitment to excellence, innovation, and entrepreneurship in the international moving industry.

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards, often hailed as the “Grammys of Entrepreneurship,” are a beacon for the UK’s most dynamic and innovative businesses. This year’s finalists highlight a collective turnover of nearly £2.9 billion and employment for around 20,000 people, underscoring the pivotal role these businesses play in driving economic growth and innovation.

John Mason International Movers, based in Liverpool, has been at the forefront of international relocations since its inception in 1884 by one of the world’s first female entrepreneurs, Mary Mason. Her pioneering spirit continues to inspire our operations today, making innovation and entrepreneurship part of our DNA.

“We are incredibly honoured to be a finalist for such a prestigious award. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and we are excited to celebrate this achievement with the wider entrepreneurial community,” said Simon Hood, Executive Director at John Mason International Movers.

Previous winners of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards include the trailblazers behind BrewDog, MyEnergi, Zilch, Grenade, and ClearScore, who have risen to become household names. The awards ceremony, set to take place on Monday, 18th November, at London’s prestigious Grosvenor House, is the largest entrepreneurial celebration in the UK, providing a platform for businesses to connect, celebrate, and champion the spirit of entrepreneurship.

Francesca James, Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, stated, “The calibre of entries this year is truly outstanding. These entrepreneurs are the backbone of our economy, and their stories are a testament to the incredible resilience and creativity of the UK’s business community. We are thrilled to recognise their achievements and support their continued growth.”

John Mason International Movers’ inclusion as a finalist reflects not only our enduring legacy but also our ability to evolve and innovate. Our story began with Mary Mason’s vision 140 years ago, and it continues to unfold with each new move we handle. This nomination also follows our recent recognition with The King’s Award for Enterprise, further solidifying our status as leaders in our field.

From start with Michelle to finish with Gill the level of service was excellent. John Mason and its international partners handled my move from Devon to Australia seemingly effortlessly. I couldn't ask for better.
