Kaizen Reporting has been formally presented with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in innovation by the Lord Mayor of London, Andrew Parmley at a ceremony at Mansion House.

The celebration followed an audience with the Queen at Buckingham Palace attended by our CEO and Founder Dario Crispini and Lead Data Scientist, Tamer Onder in July this year.

The Queen’s Award was awarded to Kaizen in April this year for outstanding achievement in innovation for our ReportShield™ accuracy testing service that provides financial firms with full visibility of the quality of their regulatory reporting.

The Lord Mayor said Kaizen was one of only very few firms in the City to receive the award, and that the work we were doing to improve data standards in the industry was pioneering:

“What you are doing is incredibly important for the future of the city, for regulation and for the country,” he said.

Kaizen CEO Dario Crispini said, “It’s an incredible honour to receive the award from the Lord Mayor of London at Mansion House, just down the road from our offices.  Winning the Queen’s Award is testament to our fantastic team who has developed and delivered this unique solution for firms with reporting obligations.”
