A BOOMING Wigan business is in the running for yet more national honours.

Colin Stevens, of Better Bathrooms fame, has been shortlisted in the CEO of the Year category in the fifth annual UK Private Business Awards.

The finalists were selected by PwC and HSBC Private Bank from scores of entries across the UK.

Mr Stevens, who built up the business from a one-man operation in his bedroom to a multi-millio-pound enterprise, said: “Upholding a dynamic and ambitious approach to business, I strongly believe in ‘Being there first, launching fast and fixing quickly’.

“Despite this risky ethos, I encourage everyone within the team to try new things, not being afraid to go back to the drawing board. As a leader I have created a culture on innovation and I believe in my team, in the business and our vision.”

The winners will be announced at a London dinner on September 30.
