Two Impressive Awards for Eveden
Eveden is presented with Exit Management Team of the Year & Chief Executive of the Year at the Midlands BVCA Management Team Awards.
The lingerie and swimwear design and manufacturer Eveden who is responsible for market leading brands such as Freya and Fantasie, is celebrating after it was presented with two prestigious awards at the Midlands BVCA (British Venture Capital Association) Awards.
The event which was part of a year-long process run by the BVCA, firstly presented Eveden with Exit Management Team of the Year. This was given for LDC’s sale of Eveden to Japan lingerie market leader Wacoal. To reflect its new Wacoal ownership, in January 2013 the business that was known as Eveden Group announced its name change to Wacoal Eveden.
The BVCA Awards then went onto name Eveden’s Chief Executive Tracy Lewis, Chief Executive of the Year. Worthy winner, Lewis was also recently awarded in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards for Best Consumer Product Business in the Midlands as well as UK Private Equity-backed Entrepreneur of the Year.
Based in Northamptonshire, Eveden is the United Kingdom’s largest lingerie and swimwear design and manufacturer. Offering its portfolio of brands Freya, Fantasie, Fauve, Elomi, Goddess and Huit – Eveden is market leader of fuller bust and full figure collections throughout Europe, North America and Australia and specialises in catering for women from an A to K cup.
Both of Eveden’s awards will now be taken forward and considered for the national BVCA Awards which are due to take place in London in July.
Tracy Lewis, Chief Executive of Eveden, said: “I am delighted that Eveden has been presented with the BVCA Midlands award for Exit Management Team of the Year and absolutely thrilled to have been presented with Chief Executive of the Year. Winning these awards is testament to our consistent effort and achievement in developing the reach of our brands internationally. On behalf of everyone at Eveden, I’d like to thank the BVCA.”
