Kofax® plc (LSE: KFX), a leading provider of Capture Enabled BPM™ (business process management) solutions, today announced that chief executive officer Reynolds C. Bish was honored at the 2012 British American Business Awards (BABAs) last night for his leadership in the Southern California business community. In addition, the company announced it has been included in the FTSE4Good Index Series, a family of share indexes which identify companies that meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards.
The BABAs, hosted by the British American Business Council (BABC), recognise business leaders selected from Southern California’s vital and diverse industry sectors. Honorees participated in a panel discussion moderated by Rick Reiff, executive editor of the Orange County Business Journal and host and producer of the PBS program, “SoCal Insider,” during which they discussed the challenges and opportunities facing organisations that operate in today’s demanding global economy.
“It’s a privilege to be included in the premier group of business leaders honored by the BABC,” said Mr. Bish. “It’s particularly gratifying in light of our listing on the London Stock Exchange, large UK shareholder base and other strong ties to the UK.”
“Our congratulations to Reynolds on this recognition,” said Dr. John R. Gibson, chairman of the BABC’s commerce committee. “Kofax is a prime example of a Southern California company that personifies the spirit of innovation and leadership and has used it to create global impact.”
Kofax’s global presence has also been recognized by the investment community with its addition to the FTSE4Good index. Companies included in the index have demonstrated they meet criteria in five categories: environmental management, human rights, supply chain labor standards, countering bribery, and climate change.
