The History of Prestige Network
The Founders Shohreh and Shawn Khorassani started Prestige Network Limited in April 1991 - with a boundless supply of energy and an unquestioning love for business.
Many would find going into business with family members unthinkable, but Shohreh and Shawn found that this brother and sister partnership gave them a unique understanding of each other’s business strengths and a stronger bond to make Prestige Network a success.
The company, which started with a multilingual software product, gradually developed a reputation for language technology and became a centre of excellence in the UK. At that stage, Prestige developed and distributed software products in the field of languages and sold its product to 55 countries.
Shohreh and Shawn moved naturally to Language Services in direct response, and with unique expertise in place the company is currently one of the major contractors for the UK government.
Currently Prestige covers 200 languages and works with over 5,000 linguists in the UK. Thatcham in Berkshire is the head office - with London, Cardiff and Edinburgh providing the support in other regions.
The company is now a multi-million pound operation, with a very healthy organic year-on-year growth.
In June 2012 Shawn stepped down from Prestige Network and left the company in the capable hands of his sister. This allowed him to peruse and start many other projects where he feels he can make a difference by inspiring, investing and supporting companies and individuals with his unique blend of talent, experience and humour.
