Romax’s Dr Peter Poon (Founder and President) and Andy Poon (CEO) Win 2017 EY Midlands Entrepreneur of the Year International Category Award

Romax is very proud to announce that its president and founder, Dr Peter Poon, and its CEO, Andy Poon, have been jointly awarded the 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year International Category Award for the Midlands region.

The tightly-fought category saw stiff competition from many elite entrepreneurs within the region. Several rounds featured in the award application process, including interviews and roundtable discussions, with final judging carried out by an independent panel. The awards were presented at a black tie event held in Birmingham on 15th June 2017, where Romax were delighted to meet many of the other entrants.

Romax Technology was founded by Dr Poon in 1989, based on his vision to engineer a better world through the power of computer simulation. Stemming from a deep-rooted passion for engineering, and a desire to improve the future of rotating machinery, the business began its humble roots: an office of three people in Newark, Nottinghamshire.

The company saw rapid growth, with offices springing up around the world to support a global client base, and deliver a continually growing range of products and services. Andy, sharing his father’s vision, was instrumental in the development of Romax’s flagship software product, RomaxDESIGNER, helping to shape it into the number one choice for automotive manufacturers.

With Dr Poon’s engineering expertise and inspirational vision, and Andy’s creativity and passion for technology and innovation, the duo have ensured that the company and its offerings continue to adapt to fast-growing markets, crafting technology to meet demanding and unique requirements. Always keeping in touch with industry trends, they have forged excellent client relationships, understanding that our customers are the most important part of our business.

Today, Romax Technology employs over 230 people in 12 offices around the globe, and continues to innovate at the very forefront of the industry. With its team of industry-leading minds working in R&D, Romax are ensuring that Dr Poon’s original philosophy and vision is always the immediate goal, steered by Andy’s commercial expertise.

Dr Poon (Founder and President) and Andy Poon (CEO) comment: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been granted this award, which we see as glowing recognition of our strategic direction and technical creativity. We’re very proud of what we do here at Romax, and we have a lot more expansion and innovation ahead of us.
