The Queen's Award for Enterprise 2022

Proper receives a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in this year’s honours list

We’re delighted to have received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise. The award was given for excellence in the international trade category, and recognises outstanding growth in overseas trade across the past three years. Over that period, Proper Music Distribution’s exports increased by 85%, growing to nearly a quarter of the company’s turnover.

Managing director Drew Hill said: “In the face of both Brexit and the pandemic, the team at Proper have worked incredibly hard to adapt to every challenge in building our international trade. To receive any award is an achievement and to be recognised by something as prestigious as this is a particular honour that will serve to spur us on even further.”
