Darren Fell wins Sussex Businessperson of Year 2016

Posted by Tom West on Dec 2nd, 2016

It may have been a bitterly cold week, but there’s been much to celebrate for Team Crunch. Our Senior Accountant Chris Barnard landed the prestigious New Practitioner of the Year gong, and to put the cherry on top, last night CEO Darren Fell was declared Sussex Businessperson of the Year.

Darren was one of three finalists shortlisted by the Sussex Business Awards with the specified criteria of an ‘outstanding achievement by a businessperson who is contributing to the success of a business based in Sussex’.

Commenting on the award, Darren said:

“This was a huge surprise. Helping entrepreneurs succeed is a real passion of mine, so to be recognised with this award is a great honour. It’s also a testament to the hard work of everyone at Crunch and how we’ve grown the business since our launch in 2009.

“We’re proud to be contributing to the Sussex economy and have plans to do even more for our community in the coming years. The best is yet to come!”
