Commenting on the news, Jonathan Quin, CEO at World First, said: “Following hot on the heels of our entry into Real Business’s ‘Hot 100’, this is the second award we’ve collected in the past few weeks. We all know that customers vote with their feet – or, in our case, their money – and, as a high-growth business, we know that we’re getting some things right, but awards like this serve as recognition of the work that everyone across the business puts in. I’m really proud of everyone at World First for their part in helping us to be listed as highly.”
