Last week, GKR attended The Recruitment Entrepreneur Excellence Awards, hosted by James Caan CBE! The team had a great evening and it was lovely to get together with the whole portfolio to celebrate performances all around.
A massive congratulations to all the deserving winners... Including our very own Lee Riley, winning Best New Business Contributor following a stellar performance in 2021. Lee joined GKR in 2016 as a Recruitment Consultant and has played a pivotal role in the success of our residential and new homes division, becoming a Director and valued member of the team. Throughout 2021, Lee tackled some challenging market conditions and achieved some incredible results all around, but particularly contributed greatly towards our company-wide business development objectives.
James Caan CBE shared,
"Following on from the incredible success of the Recruitment Entrepreneur Excellence Awards for 2021, I was thrilled to be joined by Doug Bugie. Doug and I co-founded Humana International which in only 7 years, grew to over 200 offices in 27 countries.
Today Doug is part of the Recruitment Entrepreneur International expansion, leading the movement in the US. It was a pleasure to have him join us in London and see the success we have achieved in the UK.
This leads me to the next two categories from the evening. Best New Business Contribution across the portfolio was awarded to the person who generated the most GP from new clients within 2021. Whilst Most Significant Recruitment Entrepreneur Contribution of 2021, focused on a person within Recruitment Entrepreneur who has made the most valuable contribution to our portfolio’s businesses.
I am pleased to announce that Lee Riley from GKR London Property Recruitment was awarded Best New Business Contribution of 2021 and Recruitment Entrepreneur's Charlotte Bendy was recognised for the Most Significant RE Contribution.
Congratulations to both of you for your success in 2021!"
