Stationery Matters has announced the line-up for the second ever Thirty Under 30 list, the class of 2018, with Prima Software seeing both Callum Edwards, 21 and Joseph Thomas, 23 featured amongst an array of rising stars in the world of office products. The list also included Jack Fincham, Love Island winner and recently a Sales Director for DMG Office Supplies.
As with the inaugural Thirty Under 30 list in 2017, entrants could nominate themselves or be nominated by a colleague and were asked to demonstrate their passion for their business and products, as well as show creativity, innovation and commitment to their role.
The judges chose the 30 young people across the breadth of the industry who they felt encapsulated the spirit of the awards, from entrepreneurs with ground-breaking new products to dedicated team players to bloggers promoting their products.
Callum Edwards, Digital Marketing Manager at Prima received high praise from the judges who commented ‘Callum has shown quite a wide set of skills from office design to making excellent use of social media to developing marketing plans. In 2 years with the company, Callum has made his mark by contributing to Prima’s growth, and by winning several industry awards. Very Impressive.’
Likewise, Onboarding Manager, Joseph Thomas received plaudits for his rapid career development and role as an ambassador for the company’s successful apprenticeship scheme, he was the first apprentice that Prima recruited back in 2011 and continues to set high standards. The judges commented ‘Joseph’s involvement in the apprenticeship scheme reveals an awareness to help others and his enthusiasm to pursue professional training shows ambition to succeed both for himself and his company. An impressive track-record.’
