abertis has received a Best of European Business Award (“Best Spanish Company”), in the Crossborder Mergers and Acquisitions category, from Roland Berger Strategy Consultants. With these awards, Ronald Berger highlights the work of companies that, like abertis, with their innovation and efficiency, help to make the European Community a more competitive economic region.
The acquisitions of British airport operator TBI and French motorways operator sanef were decisive in granting this recognition for the abertis’ performance. The award in the Crossborder Mergers and Acquisitions category acknowledges the best transactions carried out by Spanish companies on the international scene. In addition to this category, Roland Berger grants two further awards: Europeans Strategies and Growth.
The awards ceremony took place on Wednesday 18 October at the Madrid Casino, and was presided over by Spain’s Minister for Industry, Tourism and Trade, Joan Clos. Roland Berger Strategy Consultants holds this competition in parallel in ten European countries –Spain, Germany, Denmark, France, Holland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The winners in each of the countries are shortlisted for the European Final, to be held in Brussels in March 2007.
Each country has its own jury. In Spain, it was made up of six prestigious professionals who chose 18 companies from the initial 700 candidates. This year, the members of the Spanish jury were Pedro Ballbé, Chairman of Campofrío and of Telepizza; Jordi Canals, Rector of the IESE Business School; Ángel Corcóstegui, Vice-President of Goldman Sachs Europe, Chairman of Aviva España and Chairman of the Business Institute Advisory Council; Javier Gómez Navarro, President of the Higher Council of Spanish Chambers of Commerce and Chairman of Aldeasa; Amparo Moraleda, President of IBM Spain, Portugal, Greece, Israel and Turkey; and Juan Ramón Quintás, Chairman of the Spanish Confederation of Savings Banks.
