Windsor, UK – 3 December 2010 – GlobalPersonals.co.uk won ‘Digital Business Of The Year’ at the prestigious Digital Entrepreneur Awards 2010– hailed as the only national stage in the UK dedicated to recognising online business excellence.
Now in their second year, the awards are aimed at discovering and rewarding the best businesses on the web and were expanded this year to accommodate a phenomenal number of applications from high-calibre companies. The winners – in categories including Design & Technology, Sustaining Society, Digital Business and E-services, beat off stiff competition from hundreds of web-based businesses who made up an outstanding shortlist of firms that battled it out for the UK’s biggest internet awards.
Global Personals picked up one of the biggest accolades of the evening – Digital Business of the Year. Launched in 2003, the company is one of the largest privately owned online dating companies in Europe. Currently employing over 70 full time staff, the company owns and operates its own online dating sites including Singles365.com, DatingAgency.com and FlirtFix.com, whilst its B2B service, WhiteLabelDating.com, offers a platform for brands and individuals to power their own dating sites that currently includes FHM, Cosmopolitan, Magic FM and PlentyMoreFish as platform users.
Ross Williams, CEO and co-founder, said: “We are very proud. This is a fantastic achievement for the company, a real testament to every single employee who works so hard to make Global Personals what it is today. It’s taken a lot of hard work – seven years’ worth, in fact – from all of us and it means a lot.”
Lawrence Jones, managing director of UKFast, the headline sponsor of this year’s awards and one of Europe’s fastest-growing technical companies, said: “It’s been a privilege to be involved in an event that recognises the innovators and entrepreneurs that are changing the face of the net as we know it. We’ve received a record number of entries this year from some pioneering businesses and have been truly inspired by many of them.”
