Thatcham-based language services company Prestige Network is basking in the success of winning a place in the prestigious RBS Business Management Team of the Year Award (2009) - an award in which judges look for go-ahead, enlightened, innovative and forward-thinking teams.

The company entered the RBS Business Management Team Award, having already been recognised in last year’s Thames Valley Small Business Award.

Shohreh Fleming, Chief Executive Officer of Prestige Network, said: "Judges were looking for a business management team which has driven their business forward using knowledge and creative ideas and which has developed strong leadership and teambuilding skills - a combination which has resulted in a strong financial performance and an energetic and vibrant place to work.

"Not only is our business management team passionate about what we do, but this mind-set and customer-orientated approach is ingrained in everyone working at Prestige Network.

"Our dedication has led to a turnover which has soared 65% in the previous 12 months to a phenomenal £3 million. We love what we do and believe that the way we work is driving up standards of language services to public sector and commercial companies throughout the UK.

"We are delighted to have been placed in this award - it's a credit not only to our management team, but to the work of all of Prestige Network’s staff and linguists."

The RBS Business Management Team Award is part of this year's Thames Valley Business Magazine Awards.The awards were presented at a gala dinner on 19 November at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre at the Madejski Stadium Complex, Reading. Prestige Network Ltd was awarded third place. There were six finalists.
