Birmingham-based agency, Digital Cake, has been recognised as one of the best businesses in Britain, as Lloyds Bank Business Excellence Awards 2021 announces its finalists. Celebrating the resilience, innovation and creativity of the nation’s businesses, these prestigious awards showcase the best of the UK’s corporate community.

An agency founded by retailers for retailers, Digital Cake has been commended for its work with small businesses within the retail space, having secured a finalist spot within the ‘Business Enabler of the Year’ category. With a passion for supporting the acceleration and growth of small businesses within the region, Digital Cake’s commitment to supporting independents in the industry has been lauded as exemplary.

Putting Birmingham on the map for innovative digital marketing, the team has recently celebrated a monumental year that saw the team double in size and the sales increase by 80%.

Event Director of The Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards (BBEA), Sarah Austin said:

“Our awards are a national platform to showcase, celebrate and honour the very best of British business. Becoming a finalist is a very impressive accolade; all our finalists stood out as truly creative and innovative during a turbulent year for British businesses; they have proven their companies to be resilient, entrepreneurial and really are best of the class.”

The Lloyds Bank Business Excellence Awards announcement comes shortly after the agency has been shortlisted for another two awards at the West Midlands Business Master Award. An event that celebrates the achievements of the most innovative, ambitious and successful businesses in the region.

Chris Thomas, CEO and Founder of Digital Cake, said:

“We are thrilled to be among the top businesses in Britain by becoming a finalist in these very prestigious national business awards. It’s also truly humbling that we have been chosen in the West Midlands Business Masters Award; as an agency, we love to champion Birmingham and the businesses within our city, so it’s great to be recognised by the region.

“Being a finalist for both of these awards is a testament to the innovation, hard work and dedication shown by our team during the last year, who have all worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to support our clients during one of the most difficult periods the retail sector has experienced. To be included in a category with such esteemed nominees is an honour, and we are hugely grateful to be recognised alongside them.”
