A Kentish Town company that received one of the most prestigious business awards handed out by the Queen earlier this year came in for yet more royal treatment last Thursday (July 17).

MVF Global, in Ryland Road, was awash with cocktails and party food as its staff received a visit from Camden’s representative deputy lieutenant Sir Ian Johnston on behalf of the Royal Family.

The firm, an online digital publisher, is the country’s fastest growing tech firm and was one of only an elite group of companies to win a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade this year.

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town and Camden mayor Cllr Lazzaro Pietragnoli also visited.

CEO Titus Sharpe said: “I am thrilled it has received this incredible award. Last year we were named the fastest growing tech company in the UK in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100, this year we made the top 50 small companies to work for in the UK – and now this!”
