Mr Scaife inspired me
Earlier this week we launched our new campaign – Inspiring Better Business – through which we’ll be bringing you inspiration, help and advice from leading UK business owners as well as the chance for you to share your business inspiration.
To kick things off we have released three great case studies from three very interesting individuals. One of whom is Glenn Elliott, CEO and founder of Asperity Employee Benefits.
Glenn runs an industry-leading employee benefits business which he started after being inspired by his days at high school. With a flair for entrepreneurialism, Glenn was encouraged by his physics teacher, Mr Scaife, to take one of his business plans to the local bank.
Armed with a cheque book and £50 overdraft, this was the turning point for Glenn. From here, Glenn immediately knew he wanted to run his own business.
From those humble beginnings Glenn’s business now has offices in the UK, New York, and Sydney, Australia, with over 750 clients including Yahoo, AOL, IBM and American Express. And thanks to his excellent team, Asperity shows no signs of slowing down.
“Make sure you realise the skills you have in front of you and make full use of them.”
Glenn has been a loyal customer of Fasthosts for over 10 years. During our recent interview with him we ask what he thought of Fasthosts;
“Behind the scenes, we require a technology provider to ensure our clients get the best possible experience. Fasthosts infrastructure is reliable, secure and supported by real experts. They have helped us become UK market leaders and are successfully supporting our international growth plans.”
It’s great to know that our products and services are helping customers like Glenn to grow their businesses.
