The 10th Global Recruiter Awards took place yesterday at Café de Paris, London, with Executives in Africa lifting the award for “Best UK Overseas Operation”.
The Awards have an unprecedented reputation within the Industry for recognizing the best of the best, so winning the “Best UK Overseas Operation” with their first nomination, was a superb achievement for Executives in Africa.
Attending with her Senior Management Team, Sarah Fitzgerald, Managing Director said, “It’s fantastic be the winner of this coveted category as an Executive Search business, as it recognises the contribution we have made supporting businesses in Africa with their human capital needs. This is particularly important currently as there are huge opportunities for UK companies to do more business in Africa.”
“We are so proud that Executives in Africa has been recognised with this award especially as we too are about to celebrate 10 years of operations. We have a fantastic company with a highly engaged team who are all passionate about what we do. This truly is a team achievement and we look forward to celebrating as a team.”
Richard Putley, Managing Director, was already on his way to The Super Return Emerging Markets Conference in Amsterdam to represent Executives in Africa when he heard the good news.
A delighted Richard said, “This award is testament to team’s dedication to stand apart from our competitors and to give un-paralleled services to our clients and candidates. Executives in Africa is an ambitious business that will continue to make a positive impact on the African continent and this award goes towards authenticating our work.”
Executives in Africa were selected as winners for the Best UK Overseas Operation by the judges who said, “The winners were commended as a business that is not only clearly profitable but also growing from a commercial prospective. More importantly, they are truly committed to, and are actively engaged in, making a difference to their clients and candidates.”
“The business,” the judges said, “has an impact that reaches far beyond just its shareholders into the lives of the African community within which they work. This is clear from both their results as well as the testimonials they have received.”
