Janine Edwards shares reasoning behind Headline Sponsorship of LMBA 2019


Janine Edwards Wealth Management Ltd is a Principal Partner Practice of St James’s Place Wealth Management. Over the years Janine has forged an ever-growing presence as sponsors of Midlands-based business awards.

Janine and her team, who provide a range of specialist wealth management services to high net worth individuals, are set to reprise their role as Headline Sponsor of the Leicester Mercury Business Awards upon its return on 11 April 2019.

An event which recognises the achievements and successes various businesses across a range of industries have had over the past 12 months, Janine explained the benefits the awards bring to the region of Leicestershire: 

“There is much to be learnt from successful companies across Leicestershire, and, by celebrating their accomplishments we will incentivise others to follow in their footsteps.

“We see these awards as a wonderful opportunity to encourage a strong, tightly knit business community that works in the interests of everybody.

“Collectively, local businesses have shown fantastic resilience in recent years and our most successful companies serve as examples to us all. For that, they deserve all the recognition they can get.”

Headline Sponsorship isn’t the only returning support Janine is bringing to the event. Always an advocate for sponsoring the biggest and most prestigious award of the night, the Company of the Year, Janine is proud to once again be recognising a firm that has proved to be an invaluable asset to the local business community.

And, with each category sponsor responsible for the selection of the three finalists, Janine has a clear idea of what she is looking for in this year’s Company of the Year award winner:

“We will be looking for a company who have developed a strong business presence with proof of certain accomplishments such as strong market share, economic turn around and innovative approach. All of these elements are crucial to a successful business, and we are looking forward to seeing those who are nominated.”

Janine has more than 30 years’ experience when it comes to wealth management, and continues to, work with some of the Midlands’ greatest and most successful businesses and businesspeople.

So, as an influential businesswoman Janine is all too aware of the importance of supporting other businesses and other entrepreneurs on their journey to the top. She explained:

“Peer recognition is an important factor in driving progress in the world of business, so the bigger the impact we make with these Awards the better.
