York, UK, 24th April 2014 – Cellhire, the international mobile solutions specialist, has been shortlisted along with 44 other regional finalists in the UK as part of the HSBC Global Connections competition.
Over the past three years, the HSBC Global Connections Competition has sent 138 dynamic businesses to International Exchanges in some of the world’s fastest-growing markets and awarded access to over £3bn in funding. This year the field was widened to take in companies with a turnover of up to £100m.
The 45 Regional Finalists in the competition represent businesses across the UK which show the innovation, distinctiveness and strategic thinking that makes them future global players. The 45 finalists will progress to the regional finals in June and face a panel of judges who will whittle the list down to select National Finalists before the overall winners for 2014 are decided.
Tim Williams, Cellhire’s Chairman and CEO said: “We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted out of so many businesses across the UK. HSBC’s recognition of our progress expanding globally is greatly appreciated and I am very much looking forward to June.”
The next 12 months will see Cellhire supply competing teams, key sponsors and the worlds’ media with telecoms as they attend the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Recent successes for the business have included delivering over 15,000 connections at the Sochi Winter Olympics.
Cellhire plans to continue expanding its existing business portfolio internationally, particularly in BRIC economies.
