MRG celebrates its 10th Anniversary
On Monday 3rd July 2017, MRG celebrated its 10th anniversary.
The celebrations started on Friday with its Summer Conference, held in the City; and attended by everyone from all three of our offices in Twickenham, Monument and Manchester.
The conference began with a trip down memory lane from CEO, Simon Cheshire, and chairman, Rob Smith, covering humble beginnings from MRG’s first ‘office’ (the Firestation Waterloo) through the years of recessions and Brexit to record breaking years and our highest ever headcount.
FD, Howard Bridgwater, gave ‘the story so far’ summarising the business’ first 10 years – from the first ever Search assignment, which he managed to present in the form of poetry.
There were then updates from MRG’s employee engagement programme, marketing department (including a big announcement – to be revealed soon) and ran through its plan for the next five years before breaking out into groups for some team building challenges – concluding with our Summer Awards.
This year MRG had four awards to give to four deserving team members:
(In 2017) -
Most Improved Performance Award - Mel Pye
Most Improved Performance Award - Nick Coppard
Outstanding Performance Award - Stephanie Howe
Outstanding Performance Award - Hayley Mintern
After the Conference the company took a short walk to Tower Pier where they hopped on the King Edward for dinner, drinks and music courtesy of City Cruises. Taking in views of HMS Belfast, The Shard, The Oxo Tower and the Tate Modern to name but a few, the whole team enjoyed a lovely three-course meal (and specially made MRG cake); all while punting up and down the Thames – to the backdrop of a specially created ’10 year’ Spotify playlist.
