Leading business publication Corporate Vision has named Downtown chief executive Frank McKenna as the CEO of the month (UK) for May.
The award comes following Downtown’s success in gaining a £250,000 investment from Funding Circle at the back end of last year; and a first quarter performance in 2017 that has seen the business secure increased sales revenues of more than 50%.
The organisation has added a London base to its regional offices in Liverpool, Lancashire, Manchester, Leeds, and Birmingham.
McKenna commented: “The team have worked really hard to get us off to a flying start this year. Membership has increased across the board, with significant growth in Manchester and Birmingham particularly.
“I am delighted that our efforts have been acknowledged by Corporate Vision magazine, which was kind enough to give us a ‘Best in Business’ accolade in 2016.”
