Mount Charles, one of the market leaders in catering, cleaning, security and vending services, has been presented with the Fast Growth Business Award at the 2017 Aer Lingus Viscount Awards.
Commenting on the award, managing director Cathal Geoghegan said: “The Fast Growth category is a brand new category for the Viscount Awards and Mount Charles is honoured to be the inaugural recipient.
“Our aim is to achieve £50 million [in revenue] by 2020 and I have no doubt that with continued diversification in the ROI and GB markets, and most importantly continued engagement and enthusiasm from our incredible staff, that we will reach that milestone,” he added.
Andrea Hunter, business development manager of Aer Lingus in Northern Ireland said: “We were hugely impressed again by the calibre of this year’s entrants and while only seven companies left as Aer Lingus Viscount Award winners, the judges agreed that the immense talent and success of the companies present in the room was outstanding.“
Established in 1988 and now employing over 2,000 staff in 150 locations across the UK and Ireland, Mount Charles has achieved 37% and 72% growth in revenue and employment figures respectively within the past three years.
Mount Charles also recently won the award for Best Business Premises at the Belfast Business Awards for its new headquarters Annon House, which was officially opened in December after a £1.6 million investment.
