L-R: James Blackman, Chief Systems Architect and Jeff Dewing, CEO of Cloudfm

As a result of its recent Queen’s Award win for Innovation, Cloudfm was invited to Buckingham Palace to attend a special evening reception for 2019’s winners.

On Tuesday June 11th, Cloudfm’s CEO Jeff Dewing and Chief Systems Architect James Blackman travelled to the capital with the honour of representing the organisation; the first facilities management company in ten years to receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

At the exclusive event, Mr Dewing and Mr Blackman enjoyed the opulent surroundings of the Palace, meeting other winners and members of the Royal Family, including HRH The Prince of Wales.

Cloudfm was one of only 201 companies, out of 630 applicants, selected in 2019 to win a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

The Awards are the most prestigious awards for UK business, designed to recognise and encourage outstanding achievements in the fields of Innovation, International Trade, Sustainable Development and Promoting Opportunity (through social mobility) and are personally approved by Her Majesty The Queen.

“It was an absolute honour to walk the red carpet into Buckingham Palace. James and I were absolutely blown away by the sheer magnificence of the location, it took us some time to take it all in,” said Jeff Dewing, CEO at Cloudfm. “We were there to represent not only ourselves, and fellow co-founder of Cloudfm Derrick Hidden, but also every single member of staff that has contributed to our win of such a prestigious award. It was a tremendous privilege to meet members of the Royal Family as well our fellow award-winners, and to truly understand the significance of receiving such an accolade.”
