Queen's Award for Enterprise Won By World First and James and James
World First won the Award for International Trade, and James and James Fulfilment won the Award for Innovation.
World First's co-founders, Jonathan Quin and Nick Robinson, and James and James founders, James Hyde and James Strachan, will also attend a reception at Buckingham Palace in July.
Jonathan Quin, CEO and co-founder of World First, said: "It's always nice to win awards but to be one of a select few businesses to receive a Queen's Award as recognition of our success in international trade is especially pleasing. We set ourselves challenging growth targets and it is our innovative approach to technology coupled with an absolute focus on our customers that helps us to achieve these targets, and in so doing help thousands of SMEs and marketplace sellers around the world to increase their international trade too."
The Queen's Awards for Enterprise, considered the UK's highest accolade in business, are presented following recommendations to HM The Queen by the Prime Minister.
