Local business woman Margaret Reynolds is fast becoming someone to watch out for in the world of enterprising entrepreneurs.
Margaret, the owner of Moray based company Dogrobes, has been shortlisted for an Association of Scottish Businesswomen (ASB) Award under the category Most Enterprising Business.
Last year she won the Moray Business Women’s Most Enterprising Business Award, and now she is representing the Moray area in this category on a national level.
Margaret has come a long way since she took over the Dogrobes business in 2013 from local woman Anne Playle.
The company, which was set up in 2004, makes drying towels for dogs. They are practical, easy to use and are fast becoming a must for any dog-owner.
When Margaret took over the business she thought she would be maintaining it as a hobby, but she soon recognised its potential.
She has expanded her operation and this has taken her from sewing her own product to employing a manufacturer, developing an eye-catching brand, revamping her website and still making time to get out and speak to her customers.
She said she is delighted to be nominated as a finalist in the Most Enterprising Business category: “It’s lovely to be recognised for what we’ve achieved.
“I’m very grateful for the support of a great team of people who work with me. Ultimately, it’s thanks to our customers, who continue to be the best brand ambassadors and spread the word about the effectiveness of Dogrobes.”
The Association of Scottish Businesswomen annual awards will be held in Glasgow on September 18.
