Riwal has been named National Champion for companies with revenue over €150 million in the Netherlands.
The European Business Awards, Europe’s largest awards scheme of its type, engaged with more than 33000 businesses from 34 countries, ahead of choosing the winners.
Riwal was chosen after the first phase of judging by an independent panel and 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 commented, “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 recognised 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 of the European Business Awards, now in its 10th year, 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 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 227000 votes were cast.
