Hard-work­ing An­drew is town’s top net­worker

Macclesfield Express - - BUSI­NESS -

THE owner of a IT sup­port com­pany has been recog­nised as the re­gion’s top net­worker.

An­drew Rosa­mond, from Mac­cles­field, over­saw the gen­er­a­tion of more than £3m of busi­ness in 2016 as chap­ter pres­i­dent of Wilm­slow Busi­ness Net­work­ing In­ter­na­tional (BNI).

He was cho­sen from a short­list of 400 peo­ple for the ti­tle of Cheshire’s ‘No.1 Net­worker in 2016’.

Dur­ing his time at the helm of the BNI branch his busi­ness break­fast club be­came one of the lead­ing groups in the north of Eng­land at gen­er­at­ing in­come be­tween mem­bers.

But it’s been his own net­work­ing prow­ess while man­ag­ing the nu­mer­ous af­fairs of the group that has earned An­drew the cov­eted po­si­tion of top per­former in the county and seen him ap­pointed as a direc­tor con­sul­tant within BNI. This role will have An­drew men­tor ex­ist­ing chap­ters while set­ting up new ones.

In the last 12 months, the IT direc­tor at­tended 108 net­work­ing meet­ings, ten busi­ness train­ing work­shops, passed 83 trade re­fer­rals to fel­low BNI group mem­bers for which he was thanked for £49,000 of in­voiced busi­ness.

He also re­ceived and fol­lowed up 49 re­fer­rals for Cara Tech­nol­ogy, the IT ser­vices firm he owns and man­ages on Crossall Street. Ewan Stur­man, BNI’s ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor, praised An­drew’s work. He said: “The ded­i­ca­tion re­quired to or­gan­ise and pre­side over weekly BNI meet­ings, to de­velop mem­ber­ship and fa­cil­i­tate the ex­change of busi­ness leads be­tween mem­bers makes only a few peo­ple el­i­gi­ble to act as a chap­ter pres­i­dent. But An­drew’s com­mit­ment to gen­er­at­ing com­merce for his fel­low mem­bers as well as lo­cal and na­tional economies goes deeper. He has done ex­actly the op­po­site of rest on his lau­rels while pres­i­dent of Wilm­slow BNI.

In­stead, he has led by ex­am­ple and de­liv­ered net­work­ing ac­tiv­ity that out­strips ev­ery other mem­ber in Cheshire. And all of it while man­ag­ing his busy IT sup­port ser­vice in Mac­cles­field.”

“What he has achieved in the past year and the fi­nan­cial value he has added to his com­mu­nity is as­ton­ish­ing and can­not be un­der­es­ti­mated. The or­gan­i­sa­tion is in awe of his en­ergy and en­thu­si­asm for what it achieves.”

An­drew said: “I am thrilled and priv­i­leged to be recog­nised as the num­ber one busi­ness net­worker in Cheshire. It is a very ac­tive and pros­per­ous re­gion for BNI.”
