The award was presented in the category of International Director of the Year for businesses up to £24.99m within the region of London and South East England.
The IoD Awards reward excellence and leadership among U.K. businesses and are firmly established as a highly illustrious accolade among business leaders. Within the regional awards, the International Director of the Year category specifically recognizes directors demonstrating success in planning, implementing and managing an export strategy and international expansion.
The award ceremony took place in London on 29th March, 2012.
Award success representative of team triumph
Award winner Martin Howe remarked; "I was both surprised and delighted to learn I had been nominated for the award by UK Trade and Investment, and even more thrilled to actually receive such a prestigious accolade at last week's ceremony. The recognition this brings is a positive reflection of the whole team performance at Global Immersion."
"The leadership strategy at Global Immersion is executed by our network of exemplary employees, associates and partners who are each equally responsible for our achievements and position today" Howe continued. "I am honored to be working with, and supported by, such a team and look forward to leading them to achieve our international growth plans in the coming five years.
With offices in the U.K. and the United States, Global Immersion specializes in the innovation, design and integration of immersive experiences such as digital planetarium, giant screen cinema, and 4D theater projects.

Contributing to technology and creative industries
"It continues to be a challenging time for businesses within the current economic climate but it is most encouraging to see success and achievement among SMEs as a recognized and important topic at a political level" concludes Howe.
The U.K. Prime Minister, David Cameron, spoke of his support for U.K SMEs in his address during a visit to Moscow in September 2011; citing Global Immersion's expertise as a 'cutting-edge technology provider' and its work with the Moscow Planetarium as a prime example of those businesses upholding credibility for the U.K.'s technology and creative industries in export markets."
