It will soon be time for the team at Netshield to put on our dancing shoes as we are selected as one of the three finalists in the Export category for the Express and Star Business Awards 2013. The winners of the different categories will be announced at the glittering awards ceremony held at the Wolverhampton Racecourse on 16th May 2013.
On the 15th November 2012 the Netshield team attended the glamorous Golden Bridge Export awards 2012 gala awards ceremony and on the next day we came back to Netshield headquarters with the Best Newcomer Export award!
The event took place at the glamorous and attractive Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce club house and the ceremony was full of entertainment and glitz, with musical performances and fine dining.
Richard Carty, Joint Founder and Commercial Director of Netshield said: “We’re delighted to be recognised for making a very real and positive contribution to the UK’s export drive. We are extremely proud to have been considered for this award alongside esteemed finalists Ramsden International, Supergroup and University of Kent”.
“Netshield took the decision to export its specialist managed IT services two years ago and has found the Belgian market to be very receptive to its state-of-the-art quality service offer. We are all thrilled to be recognised with the coveted Best Newcomer award that firmly establishes Netshield as a key UK exporter of quality services and outstanding successes in the Belgian market”.
We will certainly continue to ‘Fly the Flag for UK in Brussels’ and thank you to all those that has provided us with continuous support.
One of four finalists competing for the award, Netshield, along with University of Kent, Supergroup and Ramsden International are all vying for the coveted Golden Bridge Export Award 2012 with Richard setting out why Netshield should be the selected finalists to pick up the award at a gala awards ceremony to be held later this month in London.
Richard commented before flying off to Brussels where, over the last 24 short months into establishing operations in Belgium, Netshield has experienced in excess of anticipated sales revenue from exporting its managed IT services to the Belgian market:
“We are all so thrilled to have got this far and are delighted that Netshields service is meeting a gap in the market. It’s outstanding recognition for our services and our successes to be one of only a handful of esteemed finalists”.
