Marketing Derby launches Bondholder Rising Star

At our 10 Year Anniversary Investor Reception at Rolls-Royce yesterday evening, we announced the recipient of our first ever Bondholder Rising Star.

Each year, one lucky winner will receive a year's free Bondholder membership. This year's winner is Edward Hollands, a University of Derby graduate who set up his targeted truck advertising company, The Advert Man.

At the event, Ed's entrepreneurial story was detailed by Derby Telegraph's Managing Director, Steve Hall, from whom he accepted his award.

Lindsey Hatfield, Commercial Development Manager at Marketing Derby, said: "We are delighted to offer Ed the first rising star accolade. Ed visited me last year when he was just starting out and I was blown away by his enthusiasm and passion for both his business and the city. I am confident Ed will receive fantastic support from other Bondholders and I look forward to working with him over the next few months."

Bondholder membership includes access to over 40 Marketing Derby networking events throughout the year, including VIP previews, socials and our ever-popular breakfast events.
