The company was recently named as a National Champion in The European Business Awards 2015/16 and will now go forward to the next round.
This stage requires each National Champion 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.
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.
The European Business Awards, sponsored by RSM, are a prestigious competition supported by businesses leaders, academics, media and political representatives from across Europe.
David Watters, Managing Partner of RSM McClure Watters, the country member of RSM International, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Solmatix has been chosen as among the best businesses in Europe and will represent Northern Ireland in the European Business Awards. This showcases the amazing talent and business success this country has and we wish them all the best for the next round.”
This sentiment was echoed by Richard Bell, the founder of Solmatix, who said: “This is an amazing accolade to receive. It is a privilege to represent Northern Ireland at this level and I believe it speaks well not only of ourselves, but of the skills and talent that exist within this region.”
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “Congratulations to the companies that have been selected to represent their country as National Champions, they play an important part in creating a stronger business community.”
