Gifting company Wild & Wolf has been awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2018.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise is one of the UK’s most respected business awards. Judged solely on merit, the awards recognise and celebrate business excellence across the UK. First instigated by Royal Warrant in 1965, and now in its 52nd year, the esteemed Queen’s Awards for Enterprise has a long history of recognising exceptional UK businesses.
The official announcement was made on Saturday 21st April by Her Majesty The Queen, on her 92nd birthday.
Wild & Wolf has been recognised for its excellence in International Trade, demonstrating substantial international growth in overseas earnings and commercial success within its sector. It is one of 238 organisations nationwide to be presented with the prestigious accolade.
Founded in 2005, and now employing 150 people globally, Wild & Wolf creates design-led gifts and lifestyle products across a wide portfolio of popular licensed and own IP brands.
Paul Taylor, CEO at Wild & Wolf, commented: “It is a great honour to have been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade. We’ve experienced tremendous growth in our international trade, particularly in the last three years. Once a predominantly UK driven business, by the end of 2018 two thirds of our business will be outside of the UK, with the USA being our single biggest market. We hope that winning this award will further drive prosperous international growth in markets such as Asia and in the EU. This coveted award is testament to the fantastic team we have here at Wild & Wolf, and we’re proud of our contribution in raising the global profile of great British design.”
