33 businesses have been named as their country’s ‘National Public Champion’ after the over 150,000 people voted for their favourite business in the European Business Awards, sponsored by RSM – over double the number from of votes from last year’s competition.

In this 1st phase of public voting, 156,573 votes were received for the video entries posted by companies online at the European Business Awards website www.businessawardseurope.com for the seven week period between 6 January and 24 February 2015.

These 33 public champions will now go head-to-head in a second public vote that opens today 3rd March and runs until 16 April 2015. The company from across Europe with the most votes at the end of this period will be announced as ‘European Public Champion’ at the Awards Gala event in 26 May 2015 in London.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “It is a fantastic stamp of approval to be voted best in class by the public, and this voting stage has provided a wonderful opportunity to engage clients, staff, stakeholders, and potential new customers. Well done to all our National Public Champions.”  

Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM, the 7th largest network of independent audit, tax and advisory firms said: “To have attracted over 150,000 votes in the first round is incredibly impressive. The companies and people involved have clearly demonstrated they are worth voting for and must be very encouraged by such a high-level of public involvement. Congratulations to all the successful companies and we wish them well in the second and final round.”
