London, United Kingdom, 2007/11/27 - Translation company Lingo24’s head and founder was selected as a top business leader in “The Future 500”, a list by Courvoisier and The Observer establishing the elite leaders of our times.
Christian Arno, Managing Director of Lingo24 Translation Services, was announced in a special supplement of this week’s Observer as one of the top 50 business leaders from the Science and Innovation economic sector. The award was the result of a selection process organised by Courvoisier in partnership with The Observer under the name “The Future 500”, including participants from 10 different economic sectors.
“We’ve come a long way in the past 6 years at Lingo24, and it’s so rewarding to get this type of recognition”, says Arno. The list of 50 business leaders from 10 different economic sectors published as “The future 500” establishes a definitive directory of the most successful and ambitious young leaders, the ones described as the “cream of the crop” in each business area.
