Cedar Rose 200Specialist Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Intelligence Services provider Cedar Rose International has received this year’s ‘Credit Excellence Award in Export & International’ from Credit Collections & Risk (CCR) magazine. The award honours companies that provide cross-border services and was presented to Cedar Rose for its unrivalled company and person intelligence coverage of the MENA region.

The ceremony, hosted by CCR magazine at the Guoman Tower Hotel in central London, attracted significant interest from across several major industries. The Credit Excellence Awards are in their 10th year and each award is assessed by an independent panel of judges. Despite fierce competition, Cedar Rose’s excellent positioning in the market and strong results helped swing the result in its favour:

‘The award goes to the finalists who have found a niche in the market and have developed it really well without seeking to compete with other market leaders. The judging panel see them as thriving and worthy winners of the Award.’

With 19 million individual and 1.4 million company records on our database, which are now accessible through our dedicated web portal, we are one of the best placed intelligence providers in the region. To be recognised for our achievements means a great deal to us, and is a testament to the hard work of our fantastic teams back in Beirut and Limassol, to whom I dedicate this award. It’s a very exciting time for the whole Cedar Rose family, and this award symbolises the success we’ve had in offering the best possible service to our clients.”
