So today is the last day of 2012 and although we’re all looking forward to 2013 here at henheaven.co.uk, I’m going to take some time and reflect on how brilliant 2012 has been for us. After all, the last day of the year is a day reserved for reflection and personal assessment... (as well as partying and drinking copious amounts of cocktails!)
First off, our very own CEO Rob Hill won this year’s Entrepreneur Of The Year Award at the 2012 Sussex Business Awards (held in our very own hometown of Brighton!) This is an incredible achievement and a wonderful symbol of recognition of Rob’s hard work and dedication. Especially when consider that back in 2002, a young Rob Hill bought out the Hen Heaven brand off his previous employer - using his own money.
The year got even better though, because not too long afterwards, The Eventa Group (of which we are a part of) made it into the 2012 The Virgin Fast Track League Table. Now for those who don't know, this table was created to showcase the UK’s fastest growing companies for that year. Keep in mind that 4.8 million companies are registered in the UK, so the fact that we were listed as the 80th fastest growing company is no mean feat!
Last but not least, we also got stuck in and helped out a several charities this year. Children in Need, Movember and The Rocking Horse charity for children, where we helped to raise £2,683.00! A whopping 268% over our goal! We also welcomed several new staff members to the family and expanded to another floor in our building - just to accommodate our growth!
Suffice it say, we’ve had a great year and we hope all of you have had a great one too (regardless of whether you went on a hen weekend this year or not!) So here’s hoping 2013 will be even better! Happy New Year everyone!
