Birmingham, UK – November 2021

On the 9th of November, GuyKat welcomed Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of the West Midlands to their offices at Innovation Birmingham. The visit saw the presentation of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. A Queen’s Award is one of the most prestigious awards granted by the Government to businesses in the UK.

GuyKat CEO, Guy McEvoy said; “It is lovely for the whole team to have our work recognised in this way. Focussing on international opportunities, particularly in North America has been key. Our growth has helped us bring more quality jobs to Birmingham and we hope to create even more in years to come. After today’s presentation, it’s been an honour for me to be invited to a reception at Windsor Castle with HRH Prince Charles. I wish I could bring everyone!
