Flying high in national competition
A FOLKESTONE businessman is in the running for a national prize.
Wayne Hodgson of Red Eagle Recruitment Limited, has been named as the regional winner of the British Chambers of Commerce 2008 Entrepreneur of the Year after beating off competition from dozens of businesses to win the title, sponsored by Staples.
Judges said Mr Hodgson stood out for his drive, passion, innovative approach and great customer service ethos.
Mr Hodgson, a member of the Channel Chamber of Commerce, said: “I am thrilled to have reached the national finals. Running your own business is hard work but rewarding and receiving official recognition somehow makes it even more satisfying.”
Mr Hodgson will now go through to the national finals and the chance to win the top prize of £50,000, courtesy of Royal Bank of Scotland. The results will be announced on November 27.
