Two members of Vistage Scotland’s V66 group have been in the headlines recently after their companies scooped two significant awards.
Fiona Dewar (pictured) is one of the Directors of Vets Now, the out of hours emergency service for pets which has won the Scottish regional prize at HSBC’s prestigious Business Thinking awards. Founded in 2001, the company now treats around 100,000 animals every year in two referral hospitals, 52 clinics and 600 vet practices which are spread throughout the UK.
Fellow V66 member, Becky Woodhouse has been celebrating after her PURE Spa in Aberdeen won the Day Spa of the Year category at the 2012 Professional Beauty Awards.
PURE Spa saw off stiff competition from other spas such as The Sanctuary and The Dorchester in London. Becky opened the first PURE Spa in Edinburgh in 2002. There are now four outlets in Glasgow, Aberdeen and the capital employing over 65 staff.
In an interview with STV, Beck said: ‘It is a privilege to represent Scotland at the awards. Pure Spa are challenging the traditional views of spa because we believe that it is possible to create a five star spa service which is also convenient and accessible to all, not just a lucky few.’
Paul Pinson, Chair of V66, commented, 'I'm thrilled with the well deserved successes we've celebrated in the V66 group recently. These prestigious awards pay testament to the vision and talent of Becky at PURE Spa and Fiona at Vets Now. The group continues to thrive and seeing the achievements of our fellow members further confirms what a great team it is to be part of.'
