The mood is confident, ebullient and highly competitive,” said Adrian Tripp, CEO, European Business Awards. “The gaze of the European business community is well and truly on the Ruban d’Honneur recipients and Telerik demonstrated real talent for the Infosys Business of the Year Award. Together with HSBC we wish Telerik every success in this next and final round of the European Business Awards.”
“While only a few may be crowned European Business Award winners, all are a reminder of the immense talent creating prosperity across the country and across Europe as a whole,” added John Casey, head of commercial banking Europe, HSBC. “We connect businesses with opportunities internationally every day, and are pleased to see so many of these businesses pursuing global growth opportunities with a forward-thinking approach. As these winners attest, Europe has a great deal to be confident about.”
