Daval MD Featured in Prestigious 42 Under 42 List
Insider Magazine’s 42 under 42 list features business people from various backgrounds and a wide range of industries, the members of this elite club are the rising stars of the future and ones to watch out for.\r\n
All entrants on the list are under 42 years of age and involved in businesses in the Yorkshire region, either owner-managers or working high up in large organisations. It is their skills and aspirations which have made them stand out and be named in the 2016 countdown.\r\n
Daval’s Managing Director, Simon Bodsworth, has been named as one of this year’s 42 under 42, and now features on the 2016 edition of this prestigious list.\r\n
Simon has been recognised as one of Yorkshires finest for his involvement in the development and innovation happening at Huddersfield based, Daval Furniture. In 2007, Daval developed Option-i, a production technology which allows Daval to produce made-to-measure furniture at a mid-market price point and keeps the business lean.\r\n
Simon commented on his inclusion on the list; “I am very proud to be recognised as a rising star in the Yorkshire Business circuit. My dad, who founded Daval furniture, has the ability to see the bigger big picture, never give up and stay true to himself, these are traits I have followed and practice on a daily basis within my role.”\r\n
Daval Furniture is going from strength to strength, the firm reported 15% growth in 2015 compared to the previous year and is set launch its new kitchen and bedroom collection in April which features seven new innovative and industry leading product ranges.\r\n
To celebrate featuring on the list, Simon has been invited to attend the Yorkshire 42 under 42 dinner at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds in April. He will be joining a select audience of successful entrepreneurs and business owners at what is widely regarded as one of the best event in the region for celebrating entrepreneurial talent.
