HRH Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, and the Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Sir John Peace, have presented Microlise Chief Executive Officer Nadeem Raza and Business Development Director, Paul Jurevicius, with the 2019 Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation, at Lenton House, Nottingham.
Having secured the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Export in 2018, Microlise received this year’s award in recognition of its leadership and pioneering development of driver performance technologies, which have resulted in fleet operators being empowered to reduce fuel usage, increase efficiency and improve safety standards.
Speaking after the ceremony, Microlise Chief Executive Officer, Nadeem Raza said: “Innovation is in our DNA and underpins our credentials as a global leader in telematics and transport management solutions. For almost forty years, we have invested in research and development to develop real-time customer solutions that support both driver safety and operational efficiency.
“We’re delighted to have once again been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, in recognition of the dedication, hard work and commitment of our 480 strong team.”
