Global architectural firm Chapman Taylor has claimed the title of London regional winner of the International Trade Awards. The firm won the International Trade Award in recognition of their innovative and proactive approach to international expansion.
Christopher Lanksbury, Director, said: "Since 1959 we have grown from a three person practice into a large international firm operating from 16 offices. Our international trade strategies have evolved, but what remained uncompromised was the need to understand the cultural sensitivities of each place we worked and to work in synergy with many different people around the world. This, and the quality of our design, has been the cornerstone of our success.”
Yvonne Bear, Regional Commercial Director for London, HSBC said: "We are proud to support these awards, which recognise the organisations that have been successful in demonstrating innovation on an international level… We’re delighted to see Chapman Taylor gaining recognition for its very successful trade activity and pro-active entry into new markets.”
Ian Campbell OBE, Editorial Consultant of International Trade Today, commented: “We were delighted to choose a top firm of architects to win the London regional award. Chapman Taylor exemplifies many of the right ways to gain global business – sensitivity to the culture and mores of the market, researching thoroughly the specific needs of the customers, and involving local partners in the delivery.”Iner
