eFront, a leading software provider of solutions for managing alternative investments, is pleased to announce its nomination to represent France as a National Champion in the prestigious 2013/14 European Business Awards. eFront beat off stiff competition to be selected as a National Champion 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 has identified some of Europe’s brightest businesses based on their ability to demonstrate the three core principles at the heart of the Awards program. The esteemed panel of judges was looking for organizations to represent France who exhibited the highest levels of innovation, business excellence and sustainability.
“I am delighted that eFront has been recognized in this way.” said Olivier Dellenbach, founder and CEO at eFront, “We were selected to represent France from a very strong field. eFront has a growing family of clients around the world. We operate in some of the most competitive markets across the globe and the team here at eFront is looking forward to the next round.”
“Over the past seven years we’ve received an incredibly high standard of entries from organizations that are passionate about their business” says Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards. “However, very few get the chance to fly the flag for their country and compete across Europe to be recognized as one of Europe’s finest. It really is an exceptional accolade to be picked as a National Champion and together with our sponsors and supporters we’re looking forward to seeing France in the next round.”
Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM adds, “National Champions have yet again raised the bar for dynamic, inspiring and quality businesses across Europe. We wish them every success for the next stage of the competition, which this year includes an exciting two-phase video voting round.”
To advance in the competition this year, all National Champions have to submit a video entry for viewing and assessment by a judging panel. In addition, the public will also be able to vote online for their favorite National Champion from each country, these companies become ‘National Public Champions’ and one will go on to be ‘European Public Champion’. Voting begins in November 2013.
