Cirkle MD wins FGBA Entrepreneur Award
Cirkle’s dynamic and inspirational MD, Caroline Kinsey, has been awarded with the ‘UK’s Female Entrepreneur of the Year Award’ at the ‘Fast Growth Business Awards’ 2009.
The industry-renowned awards ceremony, sponsored by T Mobile, is a celebration of the UK’s fastest growing businesses and the people running them, honouring innovative leadership and identifying the cutting-edge businesses of the future.
Judged by a 20 strong panel of industry experts, headed up by famous entrepreneur James Caan, from BBC2’s Dragon’s Den, the challenging entry criteria ensure that only the most pioneering and creative entrants are shortlisted. There was tough competition this year with Rabinder Buttar, ClinTec International Ltd; Suki Gallagher, Smartfundit.com Ltd; and Christina Domecq, SpinVox, all shortlisted in the prestigious ‘Female Entrepreneur’ category. However, Caroline’s credentials and experience came out on top.
Having driven Cirkle for over 10 years to a top 130 PR agency which represents over 100 household names, has a £2.5m turnover and has grown by 27% in the last year alone, the award was fully deserved. Caroline’s commitment to encouraging young women into business through lecturing and mentoring was also an important contribution.
