As I look around the office at RedBalloon I note that we are ready waiting for the Christmas rush to begin in earnest. We have had many new RedBallooners join us recently as we continue to grow significantly. I understand that there have now been 214 RedBallooners in our 12 year history – walk through our doors, they have added his or her talents to achieving our purpose, some have gone on to other great adventures – but there are 70 of us here ready to serve customer happiness to all.
The reason why we choose to work at RedBalloon may differ – and we come from all parts of the planet; but what unites us is our deep commitment in delivering good times to millions of people. As most know my role at RedBalloon has changed in recent years as I have become a non-executive director – with the title: Founding Director. CEO Kristie Buchanan has the business firing all all cylinders. She too has taken to the stage – talking on her commitment to great work places. I wanted to share it with you and you can see why it has not been that difficult for me to move out of the CEO role.
