The City of Liverpool Business Awards (COLBA) were established by Downtown in Business way back in 2004 to acknowledge and celebrate companies and entrepreneurs that have made a successful and significant contribution to economic growth in the city region.


Wild Thang Team Who Attended Liverpool Business Awards 

It was an evening filled with many inspirational people and companies that have been rightfully recognised for all the right reasons, many of whom we are genuinely proud to call friends and clients. Wild Thang was also incredibly proud to sponsor the Newcomer of the Year 2024 award, which was won by the outstanding Municipal Hotel. Supporting emerging businesses in Liverpool aligns perfectly with our commitment to giving back and fostering growth and innovation in our local community.

We saw a great theme of sustainability throughout the event which suited the floral design of the room, with Wild Thang being heavily committed to sustainability this was great to see! Shout out to ThinkWine who provided guests with their low calorie, health conscious alternative alcoholic drinks on arrival, we saw they are a B- Corp registered company which is inspiring for the team as we have submitted our own application to become B-Corp certified.

It was truly inspiring to witness other award-winning Liverpool businesses being recognised. The awards showcased the intive spirit and resilience that drive our city forward. The evening also coincided with the general election, where we celebrated the change brought about by our new Labour government, heralding a new era of progress for our city and nation.

Andrew Dwerryhouse Wild Thang MD Commented: “I know first-hand the incredible work Downtown In Business do supporting and celebrating organisations across the UK business community,  so this is one of the best moments in my professional life and gives me an incredible sense of pride, but as always I will only ever receive an award on behalf of our team because its all of those amazing and talented individuals that are all part of the Wild Thang family  that make these things possible. For those who don’t know it’s Wild Thang’s 28th year in business, starting out with a small Princes Trust grant we are by no means an overnight success & while we are now a multi award winning company this one feels extra special because it is the prestigious Chief Executive’s Award chosen personally  and presented by the Downtown CEO Frank Mckenna, to be recognised by a peer you genuinely both admire and respect is nothing short of sensational. In the same week we heard the news that we are also a finalist in the Liverpool Chamber Innovation Awards in three categories so it’s got to go down as one of the best weeks in Wild Thang’s history in terms of positive recognition.”

Downtown CEO Frank McKenna

"It is always difficult to choose the winner of the Chief Executives award at COLBA, as there are so many outstanding businesses to select from in the Liverpool City Region. However, having observed first-hand the momentum and growth of Wild Thang in recent times, Andrew and his team were worthy winners this year. The success of the business is built on the quality of the product they produce, the way in which they immerse themselves into the brands that they work with, and the enthusiasm in which they approach their work. I have also been hugely impressed by the company’s ability to expand into new territories, not least the US, and I am sure that Wild Thang will continue to be a role model and one of Liverpool’s success stories for many years to come."
