Hyperion wins third Queen's award for enterprise in international trade
Hyperion Insurance Group Limited (“Hyperion”) has won a Queen’s Award for the third time, being recognised for outstanding continuous growth in international trade over the last six years. Hyperion previously won the prestigious award in 2012 and 2007. The award follows Hyperion’s strong 2018 financial results, with total revenue up 16% to £620 million.
David Howden, CEO, Hyperion said: “2019 is a milestone year for us as we celebrate our 25th anniversary, so it is particularly special to receive a Queen’s Award this year. Our international distribution model, underpinned by employee-ownership, our entrepreneurial approach, and our focus on product specialism and expertise, means we are able to deliver sustainable and accelerated growth. Our overseas sales have increased year-on-year over the past six years rising from £90 million to over £421 million; a total rise of 364%. Today, more than ever, our difference is the people who work in the Group. They are the owners and drivers of our success and I am immensely proud of what we continue to achieve together.”
