Fly­ing high in na­tional com­pe­ti­tion

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Business Update -

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.
