Colnbrook based wnDirect named ‘Business Enabler of the Year’ at “oscars of Great British business”
Colnbrook based wnDirect was crowned Business Enabler of the Year at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards 2016.
Colnbrook based wnDirect was this week crowned winner of the ‘Vonage Business Enabler of the Year’ award at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards 2016.
The UK-wide award was presented to the wnDirect team at the National Business Awards black tie gala event at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane on Tuesday night (15th November).
It is the second time that the innovative company has been recognised at this prestigious even having been crowned winner of the ‘New Business of the Year’ award in 2013.
The Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, now in their fifteenth year and described as “the Oscars of Great British business” by former Prime Minister David Cameron, recognise and reward excellence across all sectors in the UK. The Vonage Business Enabler of the Year award celebrates organisations that help businesses to increase profitability by improving efficiency, developing talent and implementing innovation, recognising the impact of ‘enablers’ that offer value beyond support products and services.
Entrants for the National Business Awards were subject to a rigorous judging process. The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories and in September wnDirect was invited to attend a live face to face presentation to an expert judging panel for the final assessment having been shortlisted in August.
The judges commented that wnDirect’s “impressive” win highlighted the strength of the economy generally:
The impressive offering on show from wnDirect, and all finalists supporting global and UK businesses, shows the strength of the UK economy
Stu Hill, CEO and co-founder, wnDirect commented
“It is an incredible honour to be crowned winner of this award. To receive recognition from such a respected institution as the National Business Awards, for the second time, is something we are all extremely proud of”.
“Recognition of this kind, is incredibly rewarding as we work hard to be the very best we can and are committed to delivering a steady stream of innovations to our clients around the world enabling them to realise their global aspirations”.
wnDirect came to market in 2011 with an innovative eCommerice logistics offering. Earlier this year it shipped its 30 millionth parcel. In March the company was named ‘Business of the Year’ at the second Slough Business Awards.
