Riwal named National Champion in the European Business Awards
Riwal has been named the National Champion for companies with revenue over €150 million for the Netherlands in The European Business Awards; Europe’s largest business competition set up to celebrate business excellence and best practice in the European business community.
The Awards, now in its 10th year, is supported by business leaders, academics and political representatives from across Europe, and this year engaged with over 33,000 businesses from 34 countries.
Riwal has been chosen after the first phase of judging by an independent panel. The company was evaluated on the core EBA values of innovation, ethics and success and will now go through to the second stage of the competition, which includes a video and a public vote.
Norty Turner, Riwal’s CEO comments: “We’re proud to be selected to represent the Netherlands as a National Champion. The European Business Awards is widely acclaimed as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies, and we are proud to be recognized at this level.”
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “Congratulations to Riwal 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 in 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 the Gala Final 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.
