Graphite's Managing Director commended in the Sussex Businessperson of the Year category
We’re extremely proud to announce that our very own MD Rob Verheul has been voted Highly Commended in the Sussex Businessperson of the Year category of the Sussex Business Awards 2016.
Rob was one of only three candidates shortlisted for the prestigious award, which recognises an individual’s outstanding achievement and contribution to the success of a business based in Sussex. The Awards are the longest established of their kind in Sussex, and Rob picked up his prize at a glitzy ceremony at Brighton’s The Grand hotel.
Rob has been leading Graphite since 2009 and seven years on we’ve just concluded our biggest and best year yet. We moved to larger offices on the seafront just opposite Brighton’s pier and secured a host of new clients following the launch of Prize Media (our own competitions and promotions platform).
Rob explains why he loves running a digital agency on the Sussex coast.
“I’ve lived in Sussex for most of my life, and it’s a fantastic place to grow a business. Brighton attracts creative and technical talent that is on a par with London, and it comes with the added benefit of beautiful surroundings that encourage a sustainable work-life balance.”
We couldn’t agree more, and we’re excited to see what 2017 has in store for us.
