Home Instead Senior Care from Wexford has been named as a National Champion for Ireland in The European Business Awards sponsored by RSM, a prestigious competition supported by businesses leaders, academics, media and political representatives from across Europe.

The European Business Awards now in its 9th year engaged with over 32,000 business from 33 European countries this year and 678 companies from across Europe have been named today as National Champions; going through to the second phase of the competition.

Home Instead Senior Care is Ireland's largest home care provider. By providing a range of home care services, the organisations helps older people in the local community live a happy, healthy and independent life at home for longer than otherwise possible.

Stephen Conway, Owner and Managing Director of Home Instead Senior Care in Wexford said: 'We're very proud to be selected to represent Ireland as a National Champion. The European Business Awards is widely recognised as the showcase for Europe's most dynamic companies and we are now looking forward to the next round of the judging process where we can explain in more depth how we are achieving business success.'

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: 'Congratulations to Home Instead Senior Care and all the companies that have been selected to represent their country as National Champions, they play an important part in creating a stronger business community.'

The next round requires the National Champions to make a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The judges will view all of the National Champions' videos, and award the best of this group the coveted 'Ruban d'Honneur' status. Ruban d'Honneur recipients will then go on to be part of the grand final in 2016.

Separately, the National Champion videos will be made public on the European Business Awards website www.businessawardseurope.com as part of a two stage public vote, which will decide the 'National Public Champions' for each country. Last year over 170,000 votes were cast as companies from across Europe were publicly supported by their clients, staff and peers, as well as the general public.

Supported since their inception by lead sponsor and promoter RSM, the seventh largest audit, tax and advisory network worldwide with a major presence across Europe, the European Business Awards was set up to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe.

In the 2014/15 competition, all EU member markets were represented plus Turkey, Norway, Switzerland, Serbia, Croatia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
