Today, Fourex has been shortlisted for the Duke of York New Entrepreneur of the Year Award the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. Fourex is a money exchange specialist that applies proprietary technology in the recognition of over 150 currencies, offering customers the opportunity to exchange coins for cash at any of its kiosks across London, as well as conventional bureau de change services. Customers are offered the choice of being paid out in dollars, pounds or euros.
Jeff Paterson, co-founder of Fourex, said: “As a company in the process of rapid expansion, we are delighted at being acknowledged as a finalist for these prestigious awards.”
The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories. They will now prepare for live presentations to an expert judging panel who will decide the overall winners.
Described as “the Oscars of great British business” by David Cameron, former Prime Minister, this year’s prestigious award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 15th November, at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, where the winners will be revealed.
For the first time, RT Hon Conor McGinn MP recently hosted a reception for the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards at the House of Commons. This enabled finalists to meet fellow entrants, the National Business Awards Advisory Board members, judges (who they will present to in September) and sponsors of each category.
Tom Broughton, Group Brand Director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards said: “Due to the high number of entries for this years’ awards, narrowing the entries down to 140 finalists was a difficult task. But through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, the selected finalists demonstrate exceptional quality and diversity across a range of business sectors within the UK. We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
