A SOMERSET entrepreneur who has set up shop in Bridgwater has scooped another major business award.

Helen Lacey, founder of Red Berry Recruitment, has repeated her success by picking up the Institute of Director (IoD) South West region Young Director of the Year award for a second time.

Helen won the award in 2012 and was Highly Commended last year in this highly contested category.

Helen founded Red Berry Recruitment, with offices in Shepton Mallet and Yeovil in 2007 and now has a third office in Bridgwater and a turnover of over £3m.

Helen said: “I am continuing to grow the business, with my third office opened earlier this year and have a long term plan to be operating from five offices in the next five years with a projected turnover of around £8m.

“The fun will be getting there because I am passionate about this business and I love a challenge. I am absolutely thrilled to have won this award again."

Red Berry specialises in temporary, permanent and contract staff to the commercial and industrial sectors throughout Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire.
