The award ceremony was held at the headquarters of the Business Centre Club. It was for the second time that PGE was awarded the PremiumBrand title. In 2008 the company was distinguished in the Business Brand category.

The PremiumBrand Independent Business Reputation Ranking is a new project within the already four-year-old ranking. It presents companies enjoying the highest reputation among business partners and consumers. In this year's edition of the ranking, enterprises were evaluated, among others, in the following categories: References, Media Information, Social Involvement, an Employer and a Business Partner.

"The PremiumBrand title is an important distinction for us. Nothing delights more than trust and a high opinion of about a company among the general public and business partners," says Romuald Zadrożny, PGE Marketing Director. "The fact that we have been distinguished in the ranking for the second time in a row proves that PGE is a brand of stable reputation," adds Mr Zadrożny.

The PremiumBrand ranking is developed on the basis of consumer research prepared and conducted by a team of specialists from TNS OBOP. Research for the fourth edition of the ranking was carried out in the form of interviews with 400 managers representing the 2000 biggest companies operating in the country.

More information on this ranking and its winners is available on the official webpage of the PremiumBrand ranking.
