UK - Blitz Communications, a GES Global Company, was named as the winner in the Creative Industries category of the LondonlovesExcellence Awards, a celebration of excellence and growth in business backed by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The judges praised Blitz | GES' work during the Olympics, and admired the way it had capitalised on that work to propel growth. They added, "Blitz | GES has made smart investments to accelerate performance and is a very well-managed company with a shining future ahead of it. Despite the tough economic climate, Blitz | GES more than doubled its revenue in the last four years and has grown from 80 to 115 staff while investing over £5m in new equipment and paying of £3m off debt."

The award was presented to Paul Hutton, managing director of Blitz | GES and Munir Samji, the outgoing executive chairman, at a ceremony in Mayfair last week in front of nearly 500 of the UK's top entrepreneurs and business leaders. Munir paid tribute to each and every member of Blitz | GES' workforce, each of whom had contributed to the success of the company.

Hutton added, "It is this success that led to the acquisition of Blitz earlier this month by Global Experience Specialists (GES). With over 3,000 staff around the world, GES' mission is to create the power of long lasting engagement for clients and their customers, something we passionately share, and we look forward to the next exciting chapter in the history of Blitz | GES."
