Search on for business person of the year

The hunt is still on to find the top business person in the Express & Star Business Awards 2019.

This category is being sponsored by Wolverhampton-based Marston's this year.

The Marston's group was among the winners in 2017 when Marston's Beer Company took the title business of the year and managing director Richard Westwood received the award on behalf of the company.

Business person of the year has previously been won by Sam Ferguson of EDM in 2013, Lindsey Flynn of Well Associates and Henry Carver from Carver Building Supplies.
