Congratulations EUDRAC

Who doesn’t love an excuse to drink champagne on a work day? And what better reason than celebrating with of our tenants on a fantastic and well deserved achievement.

Readers of our Summer 2018 Parkbench may remember that we had a feature congratulating EUDRAC on being awarded a 2018 Queen’s Award for Enterprise. This accolade is valid for 5 years, and is one of the most prestigious a company can receive. Shortly after the article was published, EUDRAC had the opportunity to go to Buckingham Palace for a reception hosted by Prince Charles. This was then followed by a presentation given by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for Oxfordshire, Mr Tim Stevenson OBE on the 6th September.

A couple of the Jennings team were honoured to attend as EUDRAC proudly received their award. The company began with Carole Pugh, Managing Director, moving into Hampden House on her own 9 years ago. During the ceremony, Carole spoke about her journey with EUDRAC and how the team has now grown to 9 members of staff who recently moved to a bigger office on Monument Park, with room for continued growth. As Carole accepted the award, she gave a special mention to her team, thanking them all and making it clear that this was very much a joint effort. This was followed by Mr Stevenson speaking about EUDRAC in very high regard. Thinking on their success so far, he admitted that he wouldn’t be surprised if he was back with a second award in another three years’ time.

Again we’d like to congratulate EUDRAC on their award and thank them for inviting us to be a part of this fantastic achievement. We’re looking forward to seeing how they continue to grow!
