Paul Smith accepts the Queen's Award for Enterprise

Paul Smith is pleased to accept the Queens Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category this year. The Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the UK's most prestigious awards for business performance. They recognise and reward outstanding achievement by UK companies. The Awards are made each year by The Queen, on the advice of the Prime Minister, who is assisted by an Advisory Committee that includes representatives of Government, industry and commerce, and the trade unions

'We are obviously delighted and honoured to receive this award. We are pleased to say that our business around the world still continues to grow even during these more difficult financial times.' Paul Smith

The award for International Trade recognises companies that have demonstrated growth in overseas earnings. Over the past six years Paul Smith has seen group turnover increase from £77m to £150m and has more than doubled export sales from the UK where it employs over 630 staff.

Paul Smith's introduction into fashion was completely accidental. At the age of 16, with no career plans or qualifications, Paul Smith was propelled by his father into a menial job at the local clothing warehouse in his native Nottingham. However his real passion was sport and his ambition was to become a professional racing cyclist, until aged 17 years when cycling-mad Paul was in a terrible accident.
