Titus Sharpe comments: "I am delighted to be shortlisted for the Smith and Williamson Entrepreneur of the Year Award. This year has been a real turning point for MVF; in the last few months we have gained major investment and expanded our flagship brand ExpertMarket.com to the USA. It is great to be part of these awards celebrating UK business and to be shortlisted with such notable entrepreneurs."
