Gibbs S3 founder recognised for outstanding leadership in British Muslim Awards
Gibbs S3’s founder and CEO, Farida Gibbs, has been selected as a finalist in the British Muslim Awards 2016.
Gibbs’s company has recorded 52% growth in 2015 compared with the previous year, and total revenue predicted to be $75m. She has now reached the final stages of the Muslim Business Woman of the Year award for a second time, recognised once again for an award which celebrates those women who are leading the way with business innovation and achievement.
Gibbs commented, “I am incredibly honoured to have reached the final stages of this award, which plays such an important role in recognising the fantastic achievements amongst the British Muslim Community. From business men and women to outstanding charities and community workers, the awards are a real celebration of inspiring people, amongst whom I feel very privileged to appear.
“This award should not reflect only on me: I lead a fantastic group of people at Gibbs S3, and the outstanding results we have seen over the past few years are all down to their hard-work and dedication. I look forward to the great things they will achieve in 2016 and beyond.”
Gibbs was awarded Business Woman of the Year at the British Muslim Awards for the first time in 2013. She has also been recognised in a number of other awards, including the Asian Achievers Awards, BMA Awards, RBS Asian Woman in Achievement Awards and Global Enterprising Woman of the Year Award. In September 2014 she was selected as one of the Brummell 30 Inspirational City of London Women Entrepreneurs.
Now in its fourth year, the British Muslim Awards will this year take place at The Paragon Hotel, Birmingham, where they will be presented by Al Rayan Bank. The celebratory evening on the 28th January will recognise a wide range of achievements which cover various aspects of society including business, charity, sport, as well as arts and culture, designed to reflect the successful contributions that British Muslims make to society.
