Monday April 22, 2013 : UKASH HONOURED IN QUEEN'S AWARDS
Receives award for the third consecutive year
E-money network UKash has been honoured for the third consecutive year in the Queen's Awards for Enterprise for its contribution to International Trade.
The e-money transaction processor boasts a 65 percent year on year growth driven by an increase in acceptance of the format as a viable alternative to traditional banking and/or credit facilities.
David Hunter, chief executive officer of Ukash said: “This is a remarkable achievement for Ukash, recognising our contribution to UK exports. As we celebrate winning the Queen’s Award for the third year in a row, we believe there are very few companies who have achieved this accolade. The fact that the Queen’s Award is given on advice from the Prime Minister, makes receiving it an even greater honour.”
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise for UK businesses and individuals are announced each year on 21 April, as part of Her Majesty the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.
The International Trade award recognises UK businesses that have delivered substantial growth in overseas earnings and improved levels of commercial success globally.
