Expanding technology leader recognised by Business Weekly for innovation brilliance
The award is in recognition of what Business Weekly described as “decades of innovation brilliance”. Cambridge Consultants’ enterprise has created more than a billion pounds’ worth of value and more than 3,000 jobs. Five of its spin-outs have gone on to be listed on the London Stock Exchange and several have been sold in multi-million-pound deals.
“Once in a while a company displays such a staggering array of all-round capabilities it defies pigeon-holing in any one category,” said Dominic Moore of Mountgrange, presenting the award to Cambridge Consultants. “Business Weekly and the judges were moved to create a suitable award that may never be presented again – the recipient is that special. At the Oscars it would no doubt be branded a Lifetime Achievement Award but this particular business is just starting out on a fresh era of global growth. We have called the award ‘Cambridge Greats’ and, in this context, there was only one contender.
