Data centre and communications firm Node4 is to represent the UK as a National Finalist for the European Business Awards. The company made the finalist list for The RSM International Entrepreneur of the Year Award category.
Node4 beat off stiff competition to be selected as one of fifty National Finalists and will now compete for National Champion status in the next round of the competition. Final category Award winners will be unveiled April 2013.
The European Business Awards are dedicated to raising the visibility and progress of companies who excel in delivering innovation twinned with successful commercial results whilst acting responsibly and positively affecting the social environment they operate in.
Andrew Gilbert, Managing Director of Node4, said, “We’re delighted to have been named as a finalist for this award. We’re also proud to be flying the flag for the UK as one of the National Finalists. The award recognises the extraordinary work we have been doing to ensure that companies have access to leading edge technology and communications and we are always looking at ways of continuing our high rate of innovation. For all the stories emanating from Europe relating to the economic challenges, there are still many success stories of companies that are excelling.”
The 2011 European Business Awards showcased organisations with a combined turnover of €1 trillion Euros (8.23% of EU GDP including Turkey, Armenia, Georgia and Kazakhstan). These businesses employ over 2.7 million people across the continent.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards says, “Over the past six years we’ve received an incredibly high standard of entries from organisations that are passionate about their business. However, very few get the chance to fly the flag for their country and compete across Europe to be recognised as one of Europe’s leading companies. It really is an exceptional accolade to be picked as a National Finalist, and together with our sponsors and supporters we’re looking forward to seeing Node4 in the next round.”
