Zeel Solutions are delighted to receive an accolade as the best Young Business of the Year 2012 for the West Midlands regional Express & Star business awards.
A prestigious ceremony which took place at Wolverhampton’s racecourse hosted by Radio WM presenter Joanne Malin saw the team at Zeel rush to the stage in enthusiasm as they were announced as winners in their category.
“We are all elated to have received this award and it is a massive achievement to have accomplished. Our success is down to the efforts and hard work of the whole team, and I am extremely fortunate to have a strong team on board.” Said Rav Cheema, Managing Director and founder.
Zeel were up against strong opposition as the judges had specific criteria they wanted the winner to demonstrate. Carvers, the awards category sponsor was looking for;
“A young business, five years old or less as of January 2012, who can demonstrate qualities such as dynamic leadership, innovative product/service development and a robust marketing strategy, along with commitment to the region.
The people at the top need to provide evidence of ambition and business acumen, having achieved a tangible level of success, and demonstrate how the commitment of their staff is supporting the drive of the business towards further growth. The winning organisation will be a strong all-rounder, already a leader in its own chosen area of expertise, with a clear and deliverable vision for the future.”
“To gain such recognition and to be announced winners amongst some of the finest businesses within the region we couldn’t be happier. We are proud of our roots in Wolverhampton and this award indicates that not only are we achieving our targets and goals, but hopefully we are putting our home town on the map within the recruitment industry.” Cheema added.
Judges sounded their praises and highlighted they saw Zeel as the clear winner from the first instance, they added: “Zeel Solutions attracted everyone’s attention with slick marketing of its software solutions products, a very distinct identity and an ambitious vision of the future.”
David Smith, Head of Business Development whom is often seen entertaining clients by bringing them to the Wolverhampton area added; “we operate nationally and internationally, but we are proud to be from Wolverhampton and it is very special to win an award in your home. We like to share with our clients within the recruitment industry what the region has to offer and to be acknowledged that we do so, it is very rewarding.”
The team at Zeel are still buzzing from their success and this award has given them more of a drive to see what else they can accomplish for the future.
“To see my company expand and develop since starting up in 2007 has been a real rewarding journey. To start off a fresh new company during difficult times such as the recession, it seemed an intimidating and daunting task to accomplish. But with the help of my wife Jin followed by two key members of the team Steven Campbell and Tarj Sahota, I pressed forward with the passion and vision. I now have a strong solid team in excess of twenty people who all share the same passion and desire as me to succeed and deliver innovative products to the industry, and the progression we see makes all the hard work worthwhile.
Our mission is to demonstrate and provide unique solutions which add value and deliver results which have seen us become market leaders in our niche markets. We have now achieved our first step but we will continue to move forward and deliver to the industry more innovative products and solutions to keep them two steps ahead…” Cheema concluded.
