Today we’re celebrating the twenty-year anniversary of Eames. 20 years of making opportunity happen.
But how do you measure 20 years? Is it by careers we have helped shape? Or businesses we have helped build? Or the opportunities we’ve made happen for our people? It's all a matter of perspective.
We first opened our doors to Eames Consulting in September 2002. I remember very clearly the day I signed the lease on our first office in Hammersmith and employed the first of two colleagues. Starting the business with an empty database but a very clear vision of how I felt recruitment should be done properly. From that small office in Hammersmith to a global team of over 150. We’ve built four strong, reputable brands with an impressive number of long-standing relationships around the world.
Some of you have been on this journey with us for some time – there are eight of #TeamEames who celebrated our ten-year anniversary and are still with us today. Another 24 of you have celebrated 5-year milestones with us over your career. Amazing. I will never take your loyalty to the business for granted.
That's why this milestone is an opportunity to celebrate you — the people who make Eames Group what it is today! Our success belongs to all of you.
In 2021 we shared with you, a plan for the ‘Future at Eames’. We reaffirmed our ‘why’ - why we do what we do, and together with you, outlined five core values that we felt, would steer us on our journey forward. Your drive, resilience and commitment to our values have pushed us toward our goals.
It’s been an amazing journey – but we are more focused on the future than ever. The world we live in is changing faster than it ever has before – and there is opportunity for those who want to make it happen.
Thank you for playing your part, and I’m looking forward to the continued journey with you all.
Happy Birthday, #TeamEames.
