With a change in category this year to 'Most Innovative Company Award', Malcolm Swift, managing director financial services, said: "We were keen to sponsor this award which recognises businesses which have taken great strides in achieving growth and development of their business using highly innovative products, services and process to help achieve this. I'm sure this can be said for many businesses in South Devon, and certainly an approach we take here at Pavey Group."
