Exclaimer Group welcomed Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire, Nigel Atkinson to its company headquarters in Farnborough today. The Lord-Lieutenant visited the business to officially award Exclaimer with its 2020 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category.
Exclaimer was awarded this prestigious accolade in April last year in recognition of its outstanding short-term growth in global sales over three years relative to its business size and sector.
Presentation ceremonies are usually conducted at the winners’ premises, by the Lord-Lieutenant of the County as Her Majesty the Queen’s representative, and with representatives from the winning company invited to attend a special reception at Buckingham Palace with H.M. The Queen herself. Unfortunately, all in-person events in 2020 were unable to take place due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, as these are now lifting, Exclaimer was finally able to receive the award in a small ceremony at its Farnborough headquarters.
The UK Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the most renowned British business award, celebrating outstanding company achievements. Only a select number of businesses are chosen due to their exceptional success in categories like International Trade, Innovation, and Sustainable Developments. The annual award winners are selected by the Prime Minister’s office and approved by H.M. the Queen each year on 21 April, her official birthday.
Today, Exclaimer has onboarded over 45,000 customers worldwide (with the vast majority being international). These companies use its suite of email signature management solutions for Microsoft 365, Microsoft Exchange and Google Workspace.
Speaking about Exclaimer’s win, CEO, Heath Davies commented:
“Winning the Queen’s Award was a huge achievement for Exclaimer. This is a public testimony to all the hard work of the Exclaimer team and our partners. We pride ourselves on our software solutions and the support we offer global customers; I’m delighted we’ve officially been recognised with this esteemed award. It was an honour to be formally presented with our Grant of Appointment scroll and our commemorative crystal bowl by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire.”
Winning companies also receive the privilege of using the Queen’s Award Emblem in advertising, marketing and on packaging for five years as a sign of their contribution to business excellence and success.
