The Queen’s Award is one of the UK’s highest accolades for British business success and is presented upon the Prime Minister’s recommendation. SME, The JMB Partnership has been presented with the Award for outstanding contribution to International Trade.
The JMB Partnership was one of only two organisations from the Warwickshire region to successfully receive the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, the other being retailer Holland & Barrett.
Awarded to only those who demonstrate the highest levels of excellence within their field, JMB has received the award in recognition of their substantial growth and commercial success in the international business arena and year-on-year growth in overseas sales and export activity.

I am immensely proud of the whole JMB Team for their commitment to driving both our own and our clients’ businesses forward. It is the pinnacle of achievement in terms of recognition for our proactive, dedicated approach to championing local, regional and international business growth.”
