29 Northern companies have been awarded in the inaugural King’s Award for Enterprise (formerly the Queen’s Award for Enterprise), including TMC Strategic Communications.
Considered to be the most prestigious accolade presented to a UK organisation, the award is a globally recognised, Royal seal of approval. The 4 categories cover international trade, innovation, sustainable development and promoting opportunity.
Out of 149 awards given nationwide the North West had 16 wins, Yorkshire & Humber followed with 12 and the North East had one winner.
TMC Strategic Communications stated that 70% of their business was linked to international trade with campaign content translated and viewed in over 158 countries worldwide.
‘We feel exceptionally honoured to have been recognised by an institution that is held in such high regard, but it can be entirely credited to the long-standing relationships we have built with our clients and the unwavering commitment of the whole TMC team who have helped us reach this point,” said CEO Tim McCloud.
“Knowing that our application has progressed through strict due diligence, a recommendation from Downing Street and ultimately the Royal Household, fills us with immense pride.’
Other Northern winners are ecommerce companies Fruugo and GaraDry.
GaraDry’s Managing Director, Ashley Smith said they were “delighted and humbled” to receive the accolade.
The awards will be presented by Lord Lieutenants locally throughout the year and are valid for 5 years.
