IQ-EQ hosts inaugural Commercial Excellence Awards for employees

We’re pleased to share that IQ-EQ recently hosted its first internal awards, celebrating excellence in business development and client service among our people.

Over 250 IQ-EQ colleagues from across the globe donned their finest attire for the Commercial Excellence Awards, which took place on 14 June 2022 at the EPIC Sana Marquês Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal.

“You can forget the Oscars, the BAFTAs, the Tonys – this is the one we all want to win,” declared Emma Crabtree, Group Chief Commercial Officer and host for the evening.

Emma was joined on stage by ‘MCs’ Joanne McEnteggart, MD of Fund Administration and Head of Corporate Services for the UK and Ireland, and Darrell King, Director of Private Wealth for the Americas. All three showed themselves to have comedic talent alongside their industry expertise as they entertained the crowd while introducing each award.

With many nominations received, Emma noted it was tricky to pick winners and that this reflected the high level of commercial excellence being demonstrated throughout the organisation.

The evening saw 13 award categories presented, collectively recognising all aspects of commercial excellence within the business, from superior client service delivery to transformational new business wins; from effective partner collaboration to optimal lock-up periods. Winners varied in seniority and represented a wide range of IQ-EQ offices, with Cyprus, Ireland, Jersey, Mauritius, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Singapore, the UK and the US all taking home at least one trophy.

Below are some photos from the inaugural IQ-EQ Commercial Excellence Awards. Needless to say, the initiative was a great success and everyone is already looking forward to next year.

Congratulations to all of our winners and nominees!
