Licensed gift and collectable specialist Fanattik has been named Small Business of the Year.
The plaudit was presented to Managing Director Anthony Marks by the Federation of Small Businesses on Friday 28 February.
The licensee works with some of the biggest movie and video game studios, including 20th Century Fox, Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, Microsoft, Capcom and Bethesda.
Anthony says the award is the start to a big year for the company.
“2020 is going to be a huge year for us,” he says. “The response from retailers who visited the Fanattik stand at [UK trade show] Spring Fair was better than we could have hoped for and to now follow that up with this award is a great way for us to start the year.”
The gong follows several nominations for Gift of the Year, but this award is “extra special” Anthony adds.
“It honours the whole team, from the warehouse to buying, and shows that a small company producing high quality items can compete with the major players in the gift industry.”
