Neil Douglas, Managing Director of Viper Subsea, said “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award and we are really proud to see our innovation and technological advances being recognised on a national scale.”

The Private Business Awards are sponsored by PwC. Senior Partner, Ruby Parmar, explains their importance: “All too often private businesses are seen as less glamorous than listed companies, so it’s great for us to be able to support private business awards and help showcase the businesses that are the foundation of the British economy.”

The Winners will be announced at the Private Business Awards dinner which will be held on Wednesday 10th September at the Guildhall in London.
