Gamucci founders Taz and Umer Sheikh have experienced a tidal wave of award nominations during 2014, being nominated for a stunning six awards throughout the year.

The highlight of the year has to be a thoroughly deserved and long overdue nomination for Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the British Muslim Awards ceremony held in Manchester, which resulted in victory for the brothers.

Additional nominations came in the form of the English Business Awards and English Asian Business Awards, as well as the Asian Achiever Awards, being highly commended in Entrepreneur of the Year categories - further recognition of their hard work.

In June, the public overwhelmingly voted for Gamucci as the Best Electronic Cigarette Brand during an outstanding Consumer Choice Awards ceremony, solidifying our place in the hearts and minds of e-cigarette consumers across the nation. Gamucci defeated five other major electronic cigarette companies to take the crown.

The final nomination of the year and arguably the largest accolade yet, is Taz and Umer’s nomination in the Retail Entrepreneur of the Year category at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2014, in association with NatWest. The ceremony takes place at Old Billingsgate, London on Wednesday 19th November.

Here’s to another prestigious ceremony in November and further awards success in 2015!
