On December 8, the award ceremony of the annual Family Business Awards winners took place


The jury and organizers of the competition sincerely congratulate the finalists, nominees, all participants of the competition and fans for their joint contribution to the development of family business in the country.

The following companies were recognized as the winners of the competition:

- In the ‘Small Business’ nomination, the company Verde (the Pronins family) won.

- In the nomination ‘Medium Business,’ the Private Diversified Enterprise ‘VYMAL’ (the Lazar family) gained the victory.

- In the nomination ‘Large Business,’ the HD-Group (the Shestopalovs Family) was claimed the best family company.

For the second time, the organizers had to hold the competition for the best family business under the conditions of the full-scale war. This year’s award ceremony took place in an online show. It was a very emotional ceremony. After all, the stories of the competition participants became not just interesting business cases, but the extraordinary war stories of families that inspire others, whose actions and achievements are impressive. As never before, the jury members paid attention to the social component of business: the assistance to the Armed Forces, the state or local communities, to projects aimed at restoring the country. ‘We are all one social project now,’ Vladyslav Burda, the President of the Association of Family Business Owners of Ukraine, said at the ceremony.

In 2019, the Association of Family Business Owners of Ukraine (FBN Ukraine) initiated the Family Business Awards of the Year competition to promote the values of family business by identifying and awarding the best family business of the year. Deloitte in Ukraine and IdeasFirst support the event.
