Red Berry Recruitment’s MD Helen Lacey received a wonderful surprise today when she found out that she has been named in Business Leader Magazine’s Top 50 South-West Entrepreneur list! Business Leader Magazine contacted Helen this afternoon (Wednesday 14th February) to let her know that she has made the prestigious list.
For the feature “50 Business Leader Trailblazers” Business Leader magazine has selected 50 business people who have had a positive impact on the South West economy. The magazine has chosen people who are all risk takers, wealth creators and in the magazine’s own words “trailblazers”.
Helen is accompanied on the list by the great and the good of business from across the region. The list includes key figures from well known businesses such as Superdry, Pieminister, and Lovehoney as well as celebrity entrepreneurs such as Dragon’s Den’s Deborah Meaden. Helen is one of only three women who have made the prestigious list – something that makes Helen even more proud.
Helen said: “It was a genuine surprise to receive the email from Business Leader Magazine telling me I had made the list of their top 50 South-West Entrepreneurs! I am extremely honoured to be featured especially alongside Deborah Meaden – a woman that I really admire and is an inspiration to me. It is even more special to be one of only three woman who have made the top 50! Thank you so much for the honour – it has made my day!”
Bridgwater Chamber of Commerce are delighted to see one of their member’s receiving a such a well-deserved accolade and wish Helen many congratulations.
