The 'Ones to Watch' for each country can be found at http://www.businessawardseurope.com.

To make it on to the 'Ones to Watch' list companies will have demonstrated exceptional achievement in one of the 12 European Business Awards' categories and reflect the programme's core values of innovation, success and ethics.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, Europe's largest business competition now in its 11th year, said: "We wanted to expand on what we have done in the past and recognise more widely the many incredible business success stories from across Europe."

He continued: "The talent, dedication and innovation at the heart of these companies creates jobs and opportunity, and their success drives their country's prosperity. The 'Ones to Watch' lists will set a benchmark of success for the European business community."

Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM, the sixth largest global network of independent audit, tax and consulting firms, and long-term sponsors of the Awards, said: "To be listed as a 'Ones to Watch' is a real accolade.
