New York.- Panos Xenokostas was announced as one of the 10 best European Entrepreneurs for the second consecutive year, while ONEX is listed among the 110 best companies in Europe, which move on to the final phase of the contest. ΟΝΕΧ is the only Greek company that competes for “The RSM Entrepreneur of the Year” Award, by receiving the honorary title of “Ruban d’ Honneur” for the second consecutive year, after a very strict evaluation and selection process amongst more than 24,000 candidates – companies throughout Europe.
Panos Xenokostas, President and CEO of ONEX, competes with another 9 candidates from Italy, Great Britain, Sweden, Germany, Holland and Turkey and he represents Greece in the category “The RSM Entrepreneur of the Year”, for the title of the Best European Entrepreneur. According to the organizers, the quality and the high level of the contestants, together with the strong competition of the participants turned the selection procedure of this top international contest into a very difficult task for the judges. Mr. Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, pointed out that “ΟΝΕΧ is a brilliant example of business ethics, innovation and economic power, while at the same time it is a source of inspiration for the other European companies”.
Panos Xenokostas, President and CEO of ONEX pointed out: «The recognition of ONEX and its classification within the best companies in Europe for the second consecutive year makes us very happy while at the same time it fills us with much more responsibility. Being a point of reference for the other European companies consists, amongst others, the top recognition of your efforts and your people, who are the heart and the soul of the Group. In an environment, where survival is simultaneously a challenge and an achievement, we insist on investing in innovation and in the successful international presence of Greek companies; we insist on investing in Greece itself. Success came through hard work. Guided by my values, my passion and my persistence on the target and our vision I compete once again in the final round of this contest, in order to incarnate the hope that the day, in which our country will emerge a winner, is getting very close, hoping that we will honor both Greece and the Greeks worldwide”.
The company as a recipient of the “Ruban d’ Honneur” title consolidates its position amongst the best in Europe. Next challenge will be the third and final round of the contest with the nomination of the winners in the official gala that will take place in London next June.
