In all, five Irish companies have been announced as finalists and Ruban d'Honneur recipients of the European Business Awards 2014/2015. They are: Dawn Meats, EPS Group, Morgan McKinley, PayPal and Version 1. These companies will now go on to compete in the final round of judging, resulting in 11 overall category winners to be announced at a gala event in May.
“We wish the five Irish companies that have reached this stage all the very best in the competition. As former champions we know how competitive the awards are, and we also recognise the benefits winning this prestigious award can bring to your business. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the Irish entrants in the final,” says Liam O’Kelly, CEO of AirSpeed Telecom.
Just last year, AirSpeed Telecom was named ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ at the European Business Awards event in Athens, and was one of four Irish companies to make the 100 Ruban d’Honneur finalists. During a competitive contest AirSpeed emerged as one of 10 category winners.
Winning the award has been a real boon for AirSpeed Telecom and has helped raise the company’s profile not only in Ireland but across Europe. “Securing the award for Entrepreneur of the Year is a tremendous achievement and recognises the hard work, focus and enthusiasm of the entire AirSpeed Telecom team. Demonstrating our ability to grow the business by 40% annually over the past few years, while maintaining consistently high levels of service and value for our customers, was a key factor in securing this win. Gaining recognition of that achievement from such a high calibre judging panel represents a significant endorsement for our business," says Liam.
"As proud sponsors of the European Business Awards in Ireland, we are thrilled to see 5 Irish companies get through to final round. These awards are widely recognised as one of the most reputable in Europe and this will reinforce the reputation and continued success of these companies. The judges were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm and determination shown by the entrants from Ireland. Well done to everyone," says Aidan Scollard, RSM Farrell Grant Sparks, responsible for European Business awards in Ireland.
"To survive in this economic climate is hard enough, so to innovate, prosper and expand in the way this year’s Ruban D’Honneur recipients have is truly remarkable. Europe needs more companies like these," says Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards.
