Houlder Americas named British-American Award Finalist

Houlder Americas named British-American Award Finalist
26/08/2014

Houlder Americas has been named a Finalist in the Small to Medium Sized Business category in The 2014 BABC International Business Awards. The award program encourages and recognizes companies who have made significant contributions and demonstrated leadership to further trade, commerce, civic, philanthropic, and/or cultural relations between the United Kingdom and the United States. This year’s International Business Awards winners will be announced during the annual luncheon on Wednesday, October 8 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Houston, Texas. More than 200 executives from across the Houston area are expected to attend. Khambrel Marshall, of KPRC – TV will emcee the event. A keynote panel will discuss Trans-Atlantic Best Practices in Cyber Security Preparedness. Panelists will be Charles Andrews and Frank Weber from NSS Labs, Austin Texas and Dan Soloman from Optimal Risk, London, UK. Entries for the awards were accepted from companies of all sizes and sectors doing business in both Texas and the UK in two categories; Small to Mid-Sized Business and Large Corporate. Houlder Americas Inc. will be competing in the Small to Medium Sized Business category. Also being recognised at the event is the 2014 recipient of the BABC Consul General Award for philanthropy, BP. Houlder Americas is an example of strong relations between the UK and Texas in action. Based on the success of supplying Houston headquarted clients from the UK, the company saw clear value in growing and enhancing its business with a US subsidiary. Given ambitious growth targets, the company adopted a strategy of combining relocated and local engineering talent to work side by side. Still intrinsically linked to the Houlder Group’s four offices across the UK, Houlder Americas personnel and clients benefit from a joined up and consistent approach. “As a US start up with a strong British connection, we couldn’t be more delighted to be recognised by the International Business Awards’ judges” commented Garry Kennie, Houlder Americas’ President. “We look forward to meeting the other finalists at the luncheon” he concluded. Details about the BABC Houston International Business Awards and the list of Finalists in all categories are available at www.babchouston.org
