8:17am 16th May 2013
The Managing Director of Open 4 Business in Dorset has stood down.
Julie Cleaver who's been involved with the organisation for 6 years has resigned from her post.
The Open 4 Business Festival has run for 10 years to recognise the success of local firms in Dorset.
Julie Cleaver said "I have had great fun creating the brand and building the credibility of the Awards over the past few years with the support and help of the other Directors and the Stakeholder group.
I have met many inspirational business owners and have enjoyed seeing how the Award winners use the opportunity to grow their businesses and gain new customers. The loyal support of the Open 4 Business Sponsors has been critical to its success and I would like to personally thank them for their support. I will now be concentrating on my Popcorn Marketing clients and projects."
Stephanie Pettit, former Finance Director of Open 4 Business Dorset CIC has also taken the decision to resign. Stephanie said "It has been an honour and a pleasure to have been part of a positive, stimulating and encouraging community entity which has recognised and celebrated the accomplishments of the many talented individuals and companies in our area; from those just starting out, to those whose achievements have stood out as shining success stories. It is an experience I will never forget."
