100 BUSINESSES REACH FINAL IN EUROPEAN BUSINESS AWARDS; 30 VOTED NATIONAL PUBLIC CHAMPIONS

100 businesses have been announced as the finalists and Ruban d’Honneur recipients in the 2013/14 European Business Awards sponsored by RSM International. Additionally, in a separate public vote, 30 companies have been named as their country’s National Public Champion.

The finalists were chosen from 375 National Champions by an esteemed panel of judges made up of European business and political leaders, academics and entrepreneurs. Having decided on the ten Ruban d’Honneur recipients for each of the ten Award categories, the judges will now undertake face-to-face interviews with each successful Ruban d’Honneur recipient in order to decide on the overall category winners to be announced in May.

Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM International, the 7th largest global audit, tax and advisory network and the lead sponsor of the European Business Awards, said: “These 100 businesses are shining examples of European business success. We wish them well in their 3rd and final round of judging and look forward to announcing the overall category winners at our Gala Event in Athens, Greece, on 27th May 2014”.

In the public voting round, over 70,980 votes were cast by the public; deciding who will become the National Public Champion in their country. A second phase of public voting, which opens today and runs until 25th March, will see all National Public Champions, representing 30 countries across Europe, compete to become the overall European Public Champion, also to be announced at the Gala Event in Athens.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “Our judges were extremely impressed by the very high standard this year and we have been delighted by the public response to the videos. More than double the number of votes were cast this year than last. It is great to see so many people engage with the awards. Well done to all our winners.”

The European Business Awards is an independent Awards programme, designed to recognise and promote excellence, best practice and innovation in the European business community.
