Retail Week's 2009 Rising Star Awards night was held at London's Grosvenor House Hotelon Thursday, and we were so proud to have three figleaves employees nominated for prizes. Designed to recognise the achievements of young, up-and-coming talentswithin the retail industry, we'd like to say a big well done to Laura Milford for coming runner-up in Outstanding HR Individual or Team, Christina Acklam for coming runner-up in Outstanding Online Individual or Team, and Andrew Miles for finishing in the top 6 of Outstanding Supply Chain an Logistics Individual or Team. These three made it to the final from 600 applicants, so a really impressive achievement.
Judging from the photographs (and a few sore heads the next day), Retail Week put on a good party! Our CEO Julia Reynolds and some others from the office went down to wish our nominees good luck, and it sounds like they partied well in to the night.
