Winners to Be Celebrated at Gala Banquet on 15 October in Seoul, South Korea

LONDON, UK – 16 August 2012 – Both Ve Interactive and its Co Founder & CEO, David Brown have been named individual winners of Bronze Stevie® Awards in the 'Most Innovative Company of the Year in Europe' and the 'Executive of the Year – Computer Software' categories in The 9th Annual International Business Awards.

The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organisations worldwide are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. The 2012 IBAs received entries from more than 50 nations and territories.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Seoul, South Korea on 15 October.

Organisations and individuals in more than 40 nations have been announced as Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie® Award winners in The Ninth Annual International Business Awards, the world’s only international, all-encompassing business awards program. Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie winners were selected from more than 3,200 entries received from organisations and individuals in more than 50 nations.

Business professionals around the world participated in preliminary judging in May-July. Their average scores determined the entries that were eligible to be considered in final judging, which was performed earlier this month by the members of 10 specialised committees.

Ve Interactive's foundation as enterprise-level cart recovery and remarketing software developers, has lead the British-founded business to go on to become an exciting multi-national technology company with six offices worldwide, over 1,700 clients and a raft of top industry award wins to its name. Co founded by serial entrepreneur, CEO David Brown in late 2009, Brown also gains a Bronze for Executive of the Year in the Computer Software category.

“This tremendous news!” says Brown. “Both the team and I are deeply honoured to have been awarded these prestigious accolades. Ve Interactive has built its reputation on innovation, professional integrity, hard work and a culture of always seeking to provide renewed relevancy to our clients, to best support their business objectives in this challenging economic climate. Everyone at the Company plays a part in creating our products and services, and in building customer relationships and I’m delighted that even with our fast growth, we've been able to maintain a creative and friendly approach, and I’m so proud of everyone involved. Thank you to the Stevie® judges for recognising our collective work.”

Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 300 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process this year.

“Entries to the IBAs grew substantially this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “Despite slow economic conditions in much of the world, the quality of nominations was outstanding, demonstrating that there are many companies that are innovating and growing regardless. We’re looking forward to celebrating this year’s Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie winners at our gala event in Seoul on 15 October.”
