KPMG Crimsonwing selected as national champion to represent Malta in the European Business Awards

KPMG Crimsonwing, the leading IT solutions provider in Malta, has announced that it has been selected as National Champion in the prestigious 2013/14 European Business Awards. KPMG Crimsonwing beat off stiff competition to be selected as one of five National Champions, and will now compete for Ruban d’Honneur status in the next round of the competition. Final Category Award Winners will be unveiled in April 2014.

The European Business Awards, with its esteemed panel of judges, has identified some of Europe’s brightest businesses, based on their ability to demonstrate the three core principles which are at the heart of the Awards programme. These are focused on innovation, business excellence and sustainability.

David Walsh, CEO at KPMG Crimsonwing commented, “We’re delighted to have been chosen as one of the companies representing Malta, since we hold innovation and business excellence as the core values of our organisation. This year we’re celebrating 15 years of operating in the Maltese IT sector. We now employ over 185 highly-skilled employees here, who work hard at servicing our international and local clients, together with the support of their colleagues from our offices in London and the Netherlands. We’re looking forward to the next round of the awards, and hope that these awards will provide the testimony for the excellence we’re providing our clients with.”

The main sponsor of the competition, Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM International, very much recognises the value in outstanding talent and the need for rewards: “Exceptional business talent needs to be recognised and rewarded – and our continued support for the Entrepreneur of the Year award reflects RSM’s commitment to partnering with the best business professionals in the world.”

Following a number of difficult years in the business world throughout Europe, Karel De Gucht, European Commissioner for Trade, explains: “I realise very well how difficult it is to run a business under the current circumstances with international competition ever more fierce and tangible in practically all sectors. The pressure on European companies is huge, and yet they manage to perform at the highest level in the world. Europe is still the place where people want to do business. The success of Europe is to a large extent thanks to all of you.”

The European Business Awards is dedicated to raising the visibility and progress of companies who excel in delivering innovation twinned with successful commercial results whilst acting responsibly and positively affecting the social environment they operate in.
