Gamma reaches the Final of prestigious European Business Awards

22/02/2016

Gamma has been named as a finalist and Ruban D’ Honneur recipient in the 2015/16 European Business Awards sponsored by RSM.

It was chosen from 678 National Champions by an esteemed panel of judges made up of European business and political leaders, academics and entrepreneurs. The company is one of 110 Ruban D’ Honneur recipients chosen from across Europe.

The company will now undertake a face-to-face interview with the judges in the hope it will be named as one of the overall winners of the Awards’ 11 categories at a Gala Ceremony in June.

Gamma is a rapidly growing, technology-based provider of communications services to the UK business market.  Gamma’s services, such as Cloud PBX, Inbound call control services and SIP trunking, are designed to meet the increasingly complex voice, data and mobility requirements of businesses, through the exploitation of its know-how and own intellectual property.

Gamma also provides services such as business-grade broadband, Ethernet and mobile and data services and, as a consequence of its history, has a substantial voice service capability.  These services enable Gamma to provide a comprehensive range of communications services.

Gamma has enjoyed strong organic revenue and EBITDA growth driven by high percentage of repeat revenues.  The business has over 620 employees and operates across six main locations – headquartered in Newbury – with offices in Port Solent, Manchester, Glasgow, London and Budapest.

The European Business Awards engaged with over 32, 000 companies from 33 countries this year, a 33% increase from last year, and a record-breaking number for the competition now in its ninth year.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “To survive in this economic climate is hard enough, so to innovate, prosper and grow in the way this year’s Ruban D’Honneur recipients have is truly remarkable. Europe needs more companies like these. Well done to Gamma.”

Bob Falconer CEO of Gamma said: “We are delighted to be a Ruban D’Honneur recipient and to have now reached the final stage of the awards. The key principles of ethics, innovation and financial success, upon which the awards are based, are very much at the heart of how we operate and it is a privilege to have this recognised.”

Running alongside the independent judging part of the competition is a public vote, which will decide the ‘National Public Champions’ of the competition for each country for which Gamma has submitted a video.
