Lycamobile, the largest global provider of low cost international mobile calls, is proud to announce that it has won two gold, one silver and two bronze trophy awards at this year’s Stevie Awards.
The company has won the two gold trophies for ‘Company of the Year’ and ‘Executive of the Year’ for founder Subaskaran Allirajah. The silver trophy has been awarded for ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year’, whilst the two bronze trophies celebrate Allirajah as ‘Chairperson of the Year’ and Lycamobile as the ‘Fastest Growing Company of the Year in Europe’.
The International Business Awards are the world’s leading business awards programme. Nicknamed the Stevies from the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to the winners at a gala awards banquet at the W Hotel in Barcelona, Spain on 14 October 2013.
The five wins signify a tremendous year for Lycamobile which has seen the telecoms giant significantly grow its global portfolio. Its expansion into Germany, Ireland and Portugal has ensured that the service is now available to over 80 per cent of the EU population. Furthermore, in March this year, the company made its biggest market launch to date by introducing its service in the USA.
Subaskaran Allirajah, Chairman and Founder of Lycamobile, commented:
“2013 has been a pivotal year for Lycamobile and I am delighted that our hard work has been recognised. To be named ‘Chairperson of the Year’ and ‘Executive of the Year’ is an honour, but the success of the company stems from my brilliant team of whom I am very proud. I look forward to working with my team over the coming year and enhancing our services to new countries and customers. ”
Milind Kangle, Lycamobile Group Chief Executive, added:
“This is a fantastic achievement for Lycamobile and congratulations to my esteemed colleague Subaskaran who is a visionary leader within the telecoms industry. The five awards emphasise the significant growth of the company over the past 12 months which was topped off by the launch of our service in the USA. I am confident that Lycamobile will grow from strength to strength in 2014.”
