Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Business News Wales Shortlisted for Two Welsh Business Awards


Business News Wales is proud to announce it has been shortlisted for two prestigious awards this month.

Managing Director, Mark Powney, has been shortlisted for ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ through Cardiff Business Awards. The award recognises business people who have successfully launched innovative ideas and turned them into successful businesses.

Mark has been growing Business News Wales at a fast pace over the last three years. As an independent publishing company, Business News Wales aims to be the voice of Welsh business news and it generates positive news stories for businesses of all sizes. The team is rapidly growing its readership throughout all areas of Wales.

Mark has also successfully established Recruitment Buzz (5 years), an online recruitment news source and Ecom Digital (8 years) which provides high level digital marketing consultancy to some of Europe’s major job boards.

The award ceremony takes place June 23rd at Cardiff City Hall.

Business News Wales has also been shortlisted for ‘Digital Business of the Year’ by South Wales Business Awards, which are to be held June 14th at the Bear Hotel, Cowbridge.

Business News Wales has created an online news source that offers a very original digital solution. The model is different to other new sites in the market and it avoids the traditional advertising model. It combines traditional publishing methodologies with the latest digital marketing strategies.

Rachel Jones, Head of Group Publishing, says;

“We are extremely proud to be nominated for the acclaimed awards that recognise the best of Welsh businesses across all sectors. It’s great to be part of that recognition. Business News Wales is developing in size and innovation and we have ambitious plans in place to grow the business and develop even further over the next 12 months.”
