GroundScope has been named as ‘One to Watch’ in a list of companies selected by the European Business Awards.
The awards, now in its 12th year, considered more than 111,000 businesses from 34 countries for the list, which also includes UK companies such as Boohoo, Computercentre, Dreams, Hotel Chocolat and Moonpig.
GroundScope is the only UK corporate travel business to feature on the most recent list.
The company will now have the chance to compete in one of the 18 categories of this year’s European Business Awards to become a national winner in the UK. If successful, GroundScope will then take part in the Gala Final in December, where the final 18 European winners will be announced.
CEO John McCallion said: “We are delighted to have been selected as one of the EBA ‘Ones to Watch’ companies, particularly as we are the only UK corporate travel business to have been selected, and we are in the company of other talented and innovative UK companies…
“The whole GroundScope management team are focused on delivering a safe, reliable and cost-effective global taxi service to ensure that our corporate clients’ employees are safely looked after wherever the travel in the world and that we remove uncertainty from the general stress of business travel.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, commented: “The companies chosen as ‘Ones to Watch’ are the most inspirational, successful and dynamic in Europe. The talent and tenacity at the heart of these businesses creates jobs and drives Europe’s prosperity. This ‘Ones to Watch’ list of excellence is a benchmark of success for the rest of the European business community.”
