10 businesses from the Czech Republic named National Champions in the European Business Awards 2016/17 sponsored by RSM

RSM congratulates excellence shown in prestigious awards competition

RSM congratulates the 10 businesses from the Czech Republic who have been named National Champions in The European Business Awards, sponsored by RSM, Europe’s largest business competition supported by businesses leaders, academics and political representatives from across Europe. The European Business Awards, now in its tenth year, attracted over 33,000 businesses from 34 European countries this year and the National Champions companies were selected after the first round of judging. Monika Marečková, Managing Partner of RSM CZ said: “We are delighted that 10 businesses have been recognised in the Czech Republic for their success. They truly represent the excellence and innovation that our business community has to offer.” Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “Congratulations to all the talented businesses who have been selected to represent their country as National Champions. They are central to the success of Europe’s strong business community, and have shown the core principles we look for of innovation, ethics and success.” The next round requires the National Champions to make a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The Awards’ independent judges will award the best of this group the ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status and the selected companies will then go on to be part of the Awards Ceremony and Gala Event in 2017. Separately, in a two-stage public vote, the videos will be hosted on the European Business Awards website, and the company who receives the most votes in their country will become the ‘National Public Champion’. Last year over 227,000 votes were cast as companies were supported globally by their clients, staff and peers, as well as the general public. RSM is the sixth largest network of independent audit, tax and consulting firms worldwide and has supported the European Business Awards since its inception. The Awards’ core purpose is to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe. In the 2015/16 competition, all EU member markets were represented plus Turkey, Norway, Switzerland, Serbia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Their combined revenue exceeded €1.2 trillion employing over 2.5 million people

About the European Business Awards:

The European Business Awards’ primary purpose is to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe. For all citizens of Europe, prosperity, social and healthcare systems are reliant on businesses creating an even stronger, more innovative, successful, international and ethical business community – one that forms the beating heart of an increasingly globalised economy. The European Business Awards programme serves the European business community in three ways:
  • It celebrates and endorses individuals’ and organisations’ success
  • It provides and promotes examples of excellence for the business community to aspire to
  • It engages with the European business community to create debate on key issues
The European Business Awards is now in its 10th year. It attracted over 32,000 businesses to the competition last year and in the public vote generated over 170,000 votes from across Europe. Sponsors and partners include RSM, ELITE, UKTI and PR Newswire. www.businessawardseurope.com
