Steve Haslam, founder of TLC Inns, was crowned Best Individual at last week's MA200 Awards for the best independent multiple retailers.

Haslam scooped the prize after receiving high praise from his staff for all the hard work he puts in, his openness and willingness to muck in whenever needed as well as his business acumen in growing TLC Inns.

Haslam founded TLC Inns in 2006 with partner Jo Drain and has turned around three failing Enterprise leaseholds — Cutter Inn in Ely, Cambridgeshire, the White Horse in Rmasden Heath, Essex and the Windmill in Peterbrough — with turnover reaching a very healthy level.

In August he opened his first freehold — the Henny Swan, near Sudbury in Suffolk — after acquiring it from Punch Taverns.
