London, 24th November 2021.- Yesterday, the Federation of Spanish Chambers of Commerce in Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania (FEDECOM) granted the ‘Company of the Year 2021’ award to Cellnex, in recognition of its outstanding commercial activity as an internationalised Spanish company. The award was collected by the CEO of the company, Mr. Tobías Martínez, at a formal networking reception that was held at the Spanish Embassy in London.
Dr. Mike Short CBE, Chief Scientific Advisor at the Department for International Trade for the UK Government, attended the ceremony to present the award to Cellnex.
Upon receiving the award, the CEO of Cellnex Tobías Martínez, said: “We are very honoured to receive the Award from the Federation of Chambers of Commerce in recognition of Cellnex’s growth since its IPO in 2015. Cellnex has grown substantially, from operating in Spain to being active in twelve countries in Europe. One of the keys to this growth has been the successful integration of acquisitions in the different countries. In each country, we have always felt supported by the relevant business Chambers, who have been key in helping us to make important contact with, and become integrated into, the economic, business and cultural communities in each country.”
The President of FEDECOM and the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the United Kingdom, Eduardo Barrachina, welcomed guests to the reception and stated: “With a strategic and sustainable approach, Cellnex is leading the digital transformation in Europe.”
Barrachina also highlighted: “But Cellnex is not only about telecommunications, G5, broadband and cellular sites. It has a very human side. It is a company strongly committed to human rights, both in the Cellnex group and among its stakeholders”, adding: “Only hard work, common sense, the right talent, ethical management, social values. cultural awareness and employees diversity can explain that a company like CELLNEX reaches these astonishing levels of market penetration in many European countries.”
The event was hosted by the Spanish Ambassador to the United Kingdom, H.E. José Pascual Marco Martínez, who works closely with the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the United Kingdom as Honorary President.
