Warrington-based Claremont named National Champion in European Business Awards
Warrington-based Claremont has been named National UK Champion in The European Business Awards sponsored by RSM; a prestigious competition supported by businesses leaders, academics, media and political representatives from across Europe.
The European Business Awards is now in its 9th year and has engaged with over 32,000 businesses from 33 European countries this year. 678 companies from across Europe have been named as National Champions in this year’s awards, going through to the second phase of the competition.
Claremont, which is one of the UK’s largest interior design and fit-out businesses, has reported strong growth in the last 12 months and has delivered high profile projects for Auto Trader, DWF, Plymouth City Council and United Utilities.
This recognition follows hot on the heels of Claremont scooping ‘business of the year’ at the Warrington Business awards in June 2015.
Ann Clarke, joint managing director of Claremont said:
“We’re very proud to be selected to represent the UK as a National Champion. The team are delighted and its testament to their continued hard work, passion and commitment that the business is enjoying such success.
“The European Business Awards is widely recognised as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies and we are now looking forward to the next round of the judging process where we can explain in more depth how we’re pushing the forward business and pursuing growth.”
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said:
“Congratulations to Claremont and all the companies that have been selected to represent their country as National Champions, they play an important part in creating a stronger business community.”
The next round requires the National Champions to make a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The judges will view all of the National Champions’ videos, and award the best of this group the coveted ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status. Ruban d’Honneur recipients will then go on to be part of the grand final in 2016.
Separately, the National Champion videos will be made public on the European Business Awards website www.businessawardseurope.com as part of a two stage public vote, which will decide the ‘National Public Champions’ for each country. Last year over 170,000 votes were cast as companies from across Europe were publicly supported by their clients, staff and peers, as well as the general public.
