The Face of British Family Business

Family Business United (FBU) which is the global champion of the family business sector and shares insights, news, research and much more, has launched their latest innovative campaign ‘The Face of Family Business’ which Caribbean Blinds is proud to be part of.

Representing the sector in a way that has never been portrayed before, the face, which celebrates old and new, encapsulates the true spirit and diversity of the family business sector across the UK today.

With more than 6 million family firms across the country, employing over 12 million people, family businesses collectively make a significant contribution to the economy of the UK through the provision of jobs, creation of wealth and income generation, not to mention the good they do in their local communities too.

Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of FBU explains, “I have been championing the family business sector for over 20 years and 2021 sees us celebrating the tenth anniversary of the creation of Family Business United and we wanted to do something to celebrate.  Family firms are the backbone of the UK economy with family firms the length and breadth of the nation.”

“The ‘face’ is a great way to celebrate the importance of family firms across the UK who over the past 18 months have shown their resilience and strength in dealing with the pandemic.  Many of the individuals featured are involved with long-standing family businesses that have been around for generations and see themselves as custodians of the business for future generations, continuing making decisions for the long term, innovating and demonstrating entrepreneurship to achieve their goals,”
