Wiltshire Business Awards 2017: Business Person of the Year winner Robin Deller

ONE man smiling more than most at the Wiltshire Business of the Year Awards was Robin Deller, co-founder of bespoke travel company Imagine Cruising, who claimed the Business Person of the Year Award.

Launched in 2011 and based in Royal Wootton Bassett, the company offer cruises and holidays to destinations around the globe.

As well as being based in Wiltshire, the company also has offices in Dubai, South Africa and most recently in Australia.

“I was thinking about the last time I won a personal award and I realised I never had so really for me this is a significant win,” said Mr Deller.

“I’m a very lucky person because I think if you can find a job you genuinely love I don’t think there’s no greater reward in life.

“I work with amazing people and create special memories for my customers.

“I’d like to dedicate this to my second family, my staff.

“I think it’s always good to win something as a business but to be nominated as an individual that is much more personal.”

Second in the category was Paul Coleman of CMS Group and third was Sam Gooding of Gooding Accounts and Richard Marsh of CIS Ltd.
