SM&B would like to congratulate client, Jacobs Media Group, for winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in recognition of its international growth over the last three years. The Queen’s Awards stands as a testament to outstanding achievement in international trade, innovation and sustainable development. It is the highest official UK Award for British business.
Jacobs Media Group is Europe’s leading media business for the travel and hospitality industries. Founded in 2009 by Clive Jacobs, the company began with the acquisition of Travel Weekly Group from Reed Business Information. From then on, the business has expanded rapidly on an international scale, through organic growth and through smart acquisitions and investments. The Award recognises this short-term growth, with Jacobs Media Group increasing its global business by 52.5% in the last three years.
Clive Jacobs, chairman of Jacobs Media Group, said: “To receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise is recognition not just of our ambitious plans in our first 10 years as an independent business, but is also testament to the passion of our team for the travel and hospitality industries and a reflection of the support of our partners and readers in the UK and around the world.”
Duncan Horton, CEO of Jacobs Media Group, said: “I very much see SMB as an extension to the team and it’s through your support that we’ve been able to achieve this success, so thanks on behalf of Clive and I to [Simon Goldberg, Nigel Zaoskoufis] and the rest of the SMB team.”
We are very proud to have supported Jacobs Media Group in their incredible achievement. Further details can be found on their website.
