Sixth “Building a Better Future” Award Luncheon Recap

On Wednesday, October 6, 2010 the British American Business Council (BABC) of Greater Philadelphia presented the Sixth “Building a Better Future” award luncheon at the Union League of Philadelphia. Graciously accepting the honors of the day were Gary Marshall, Head of the Americas, Aberdeen Asset Management PLC and Chief Executive Officer, Aberdeen Asset Management, Inc., and Ravi Saligram, Executive Vice President, ARAMARK Corporation and President, ARAMARK International and Chief Globalization Officer. Special guest included the Honorable Mayor of Philadelphia, Michael A. Nutter, who congratulated and applauded the award recipients and their companies for promoting trade and investment between the Greater Philadelphia region and the UK.

Gary Marshall accepted the “inbound” award as recognition for Aberdeen’s selection of Philadelphia as their North American headquarters and commitment to this region through their sponsorship of the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta. Ravi Saligram accepted the “outbound” award for his role in helping ARAMARK become one of the UK’s largest employers.

The recipients discussed their current strategies and commitment to continued success on both sides of the Atlantic in front of a crowd of approximately 200 guests. Mayor Nutter concluded the afternoon remarking on Philadelphia’s strong ties to the UK, and the importance of our strong relationship across the pond.
