Marketing & Advertising Recruitment Awards 2010 winners announced!
Following a fantastic awards night in London we are delighted to announce the winners of the inaugural Marketing Recruitment Awards
On 2nd December more than 180 recruiters and industry protagonists battled the inclement weather to accentuate the belief that the marketing sector is set for a resurgence.  Galvanised by more than one common cause, Awards finalists and other industry professionals participated in the first recruitment awards for the marketing sector, which was headlined by the staffing industrys most celebrated entrepreneur, James Caan.
The black-tie occasion at the prestigious Jumeirah Carlton Hotel commenced with a champagne-reception, before attendees moved through to the bespangled Ballroom, where tables were dressed with wine and more champagne, supplied courtesy of recruitment advisory and consultancy service, HB RIDA and digital marketing agency, Cloudspotting.
A fantastic 3-course dinner was attended by Mr Caan, who arrived ahead of schedule to join colleagues from Hamilton Bradshaw.
Headlining with recruitment guru
Following the dinner and in the absence of APSCO CEO, Ann Swain, the scheduled compre for evening, Simon Lewis, editor and co-founder of event hosts*, Only Marketing Jobs, took to the stage to introduce Mr Caan as headline speaker.  Under the title of Looking to the Upturn, Mr Caan eulogised about the marketing recruitment industry and predicted a prosperous year ahead.  Commenting that his private equity company was open for business, the Dragons Den star hinted that his next investment would likely be in a marketing recruitment agency.
The affable recruitment mogul concluded an inspiring and insightful speech with an impromptu Q&A session, which touched on subjects ranging from the best piece of recruitment advice hed ever received to industry-related products witnessed in the Den.
Participant praise
At 21:30 it was time for the main event the Awards presentation.  Category sponsors were invited to reveal finalist nominations before announcing the  respective category winner.  In what was a hotly contested process, all finalists were commended for their commitment to the first ever MARAs, as the 1,000s of votes received were accompanied by some fantastic supporting evidence.  The buzz surrounding this part of the evening was electric.
Once the applause had stopped and the Prodigys Omen sting reduced to a beat in the eardrums it was time to party.  And with stand-in DJ, Retro Russ, banging out some classics, the dance-floor erupted with a variety of curious moves long into the intoxicating night
The marketing recruitment industry is well and truly alive!
