South: CMA Recruitment Group joins Solent 250 sponsors

The Solent 250 campaign has a new sponsor – with CMA Recruitment Group joining the line-up of supporters of the annual listing and associated events, run by The Business Magazine.

The Solent 250 lists the top 250 companies headquartered in the Solent region, ranked by turnover. Each year there is a dinner, awards and roundtable discussions.

CMA joins HSBC UK, professional services firm RSM and law firm Irwin Mitchell as sponsors of the campaign.

Commercial director Richard Dibden said: “CMA Recruitment Group is delighted to be sponsoring the Solent 250 campaign in 2019. As a long-established recruitment firm and the south’s leading independent accountancy & finance, executive and HR consultancy, we work closely with many companies on the 250 list and we look forward to making new introductions and helping to support even more businesses throughout the region.

“As we have offices in Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, and Basingstoke, we feel the Solent 250 is a perfect fit for us, and we are excited to be involved in this initiative.”

Companies on the Solent 250 list are invited to participate in a roundtable debate on January 17, and to be a guest at the annual dinner on April 2 at the Hilton at Ageas Bowl, Southampton. Spaces are limited – interested companies should email Linda Morse at

The dinner will see trophies presented for categories including Employer of the Year, International Business, and Ones to Watch. In the next few months, judges will visit a number of companies and interview key directors, and will then draw up a shortlist of finalists.

The Solent 250 list is currently being updated and a new listing will appear in the Jan/Feb issue of The Business Magazine, and online on our website.
