Jonathon Moyce, owner and managing director of Loving Pets UK Ltd, has won the prestigious Young Exporter Award 2018 presented by the British Experters Association.
Jonathon brought together all the key elements that the judges were looking for in a winner: he started his own business, has designed products, and has grown his business exponentially since he founded it in 2014 – always with a clear focus on exports.
The company currently exports to 11 countries and stocks with multinational vendors.
Clearly happy to roll up his sleeves to do whatever it takes to make the business a success, Jonathon is a true export entrepreneur, said the judges.
Jonathon received his award from Marcus Dolman, co-chairman of BExA at the organisation’s Annual Lunch held at Mansion House last week.
"I feel extremely honoured to receive such a prestigious award from BExA," said Jonathon.
"Developing, managing and growing a business can often be a lonely place, so being recognised for “Young exporter of the Year” makes the sleepless nights, travelling away from my young family and the highs and lows all worthwhile.
"One of the core values at Loving Pets is to build a strong relationship with the customer, make friends and build trust. Winning this award enforces our values and adds credibility to what we are trying to achieve in Europe. Great team effort all round."
Geoff de Mowbray, co-chairmen of BExA and one of the award judges commented: “Having met with these remarkable young people – all of whom are winners in their own right – I’m pleased to report that the spirit of UK exports is well and truly alive!”
