Ambition Broxbourne would like to congratulate Peter Smits, managing director of Ashbourne Insurance, who has been crowned Entrepreneur of the Year in the South East in the National Family Business Awards 2017. 

The awards ceremony took place at Wembley Arena on Saturday 15 July, and was attended by guest of honour, Olympian Jamie Baulch. 

Peter Smits has headed Ashbourne Insurance, based in Hoddesdon, with wife Sarah and brother-in-law Matthew Hunt since 2008.  

The National Family Business Award judges said: “We felt the culture and values presented by the team at Ashbourne Insurance really encompass what it is to be a family business. Those values are driven throughout the team by Peter, highlighting what Peter and the family hold dear is also reflected through the wider team.

“Holding on to that ethos as the company has grown in size can have been no mean feat and shows that family really is at the heart of what they do and have achieved.”
