Ten Group to represent the UK in the European Business Awards


The European Business Awards sponsored by HSBC has announced that Ten Group is to represent the UK in the prestigious 2011 Awards programme.

Ten Group beat off stiff competition to be selected as one of 25 Country Representatives and will now compete for a coveted Ruban d’Honneur in the next round of the competition. Final category Award winners will be unveiled in Barcelona on 22nd November 2011.

The European Business Awards has identified some of Europe’s brightest businesses based on their ability to demonstrate the three core principles at the heart of the Awards programme. The esteemed panel of judges were looking for organisations to represent the UK who exhibited innovation, business excellence and sustainability.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards says, “Over the past five 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 the EU’s leading companies. It really is an exceptional accolade to be picked as a Country Representative, and together with HSBC we’re looking forward to seeing Ten Group in the next round.

John Casey, HSBC Head of Commercial Banking Europe, commented: “The European Business Awards provide a perfect opportunity to recognise the best of European business and their successes over the past twelve months. These companies have displayed an impressive ability to thrive despite challenging economic conditions, pursuing growth and creating prosperity. Their recognition is highly deserved, and through the European Business Awards their success – and the stories behind that - can be shared across the wider business community. We look forward to celebrating alongside these inspirational businesses and wish them every success at the next stage of judging.

“Ten Group and the 24 other country representatives will provide tough competition for the other quality businesses representing their own nations this year, and we wish them every success at the next stage.”
