Today we’re honored to receive the UK Trade & Investment Business Innovation Award for Service Provision! As part of the fifth annual BritWeek, the British government is recognizing us for our excellence in service for bringing online solutions to small- and medium-sized businesses in the UK. As Fiona Francois, West Coast Director of UK Trade and Investment, noted, “ReachLocal is representative of the many diverse California companies operating in the UK with outstanding innovation in design, technology and service provision.”

John Mazur, managing director of ReachLocal Europe underscores the value of this recognition and award. “Local UK businesses are confronted with the same dilemma other businesses have around the world by trying to reach their customers through the fragmented Internet. We solved that problem by bringing together proprietary technology and personal service to help businesses successfully transition their offline marketing to online.”

Ever since we were founded in 2004, our focus has always been on the local advertiser – even as we expand our services globally. We are humbled to be recognized and rewarded for fulfilling our mission in London, Manchester and Birmingham, and we’re motivated to continue bringing our products and services to local businesses where we operate, and beyond.
