CampdenFB, the leading global publication on family business, is pleased to announce the short listed candidates for the second annual European Families in Business Awards.
The short list was drawn up from more than 300 nominations from CampdenFB and CampdenFB.com readers, along with recommendations from judges from leading business schools. The winners will be announced on 11 June at a special gala dinner to be held in Paris.
“In an effort to promote the role family businesses play in Europe, CampdenFB launched last year the first ever European Families in Business Awards. With a record number of nominations, CampdenFB and a group of judges from the region’s main business schools have now drawn up the short list of family businesses and leaders for 2013,” said David Bain, editorial director of CamdpenFB.
“Together, these businesses and individuals are promoting the best values of not just family businesses, but business across the board. They, and the people who run them, are truly exceptional.”
The companies and individuals on this year's shortlist have all shown resilience, creativity and a commitment to the stability of the family business in the exceptionally difficult economic condition of recent years.
