Driving force behind leading chauffeur company nominated for top Scottish business award

Published: 02 September 2015

The director of Scotland’s leading chauffeur company has been recognised as one of the most prominent female business leaders in the country.

Heather Matthews, Managing Director of family-run firm Little’s, which co-ordinates chauffeur services throughout the world, has been shortlisted for Female Business Leader of the Year at the Scottish Business Awards 2015.

The nomination follows an unprecedented year of business for Little’s, which involved an extensive re-brand of the company and maximising the opportunity of a phenomenal rise in visitor numbers to Scotland due to major events including The Commonwealth Games and The Ryder Cup.

Little’s won key contracts throughout what tourism chiefs hailed the ‘Year of Homecoming’ as well as building upon its already well established client base, yielding impressive results for the firm.

At the core of the company's success was Heather’s forward thinking approach to modernising the company in anticipation of what she knew would be a landmark year for business in Scotland. 

The prestigious Awards, which last year welcomed Sir Richard Branson, will play host to Scotland’s business elite as well as this year’s speaker Hollywood actor and activist George Clooney. Renowned as the UK’s biggest business dinner the event will take place on November 12 2015 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre
