We’re extremely proud to announce that our founder Gregory Butcher has been awarded an OBE for services to the economy and charitable work.
On receiving the award, Gregory said:
“It’s an immense honour to receive this OBE. Thank you.
Trying to be an entrepreneur has never been easy, but it has been an unforgettable journey. I can’t forget the challenges faced starting my first business whilst still at school and running my second one from my kitchen whilst at university; and the failures as well as the excitement and motivation that came with the occasional success.
As the years have passed, I am grateful to my colleagues that these businesses have grown into large multi-national operations. The challenges continue, but I am also pleased to say that the motivation and excitement also burns bright. I am now also fortunate enough to have time to reflect and to focus an increasing amount of my time and resources on supporting important charitable initiatives, with a look to instilling positive change and meaningful development in these initiatives.
I am grateful for this honour, and I feel that it is something that is just as much a result of my colleagues, and the collective success for us all, as it is for myself, personally.”
The team at One Eden extend our heartfelt congratulations to Gregory on his momentous achievement.
