The list was the result of Enterprise Nation’s competition, which was powered by Experian, and set out to recognise those who provide support behind the scenes to ensure Britain's businesses get the best start and achieve their growth potential.

John was selected from hundreds of entries from around the UK and he is one of five people selected in the Legal category. Voting is now open to identify the top ten outstanding experts.

Those who were selected to be on the Top 50 Adviser List are set to be awarded certificates at a celebratory evening event in London on March 12. The winners selected from each category will also be revealed as the country’s top 10.

John Berrisford, Business Support Lead, said: “I’m delighted to have been selected to feature on this national list of recognised business support leaders. This is a very proud moment for me and the Service, as it shows just how well regarded our work is amongst those within the business sector.

“This is a huge achievement in itself but I would be absolutely thrilled if I were to win my category. I’d really appreciate any support and votes from those I have worked with over the years.

“My role within the Service has involved me working closely with hundreds of businesses around the county, helping them understand and implement their fire safety responsibilities, providing them with guidance and support along the way.”
