Ed Riseman, Big Group Co-Founder, makes the BIMA 100!
On Wednesday 6th May it was announced that Ed Riseman, Co-founder and General Manager of Big Group, was invited to join the BIMA 100 of 2020 in the CEOs and Leaders category.
In BIMA’s words, “The BIMA 100 celebrates the people who are shaping the British digital industry. They are the thought leaders, changemakers, disruptors and pioneers. They’re established figures within the industry who continue to be at its vanguard. They’re ‘ones to watch’ - innovators in the chosen digital space who are making everyone else sit up and take notice.
Perhaps most of all, as our judges have noted, the people who comprise this year’s BIMA 100 have created a ‘wow’ factor. They’ve gone above and beyond the norm. They’ve challenged convention. Or they’ve given us a unique approach to age-old challenges.”
Ed Riseman is the Co-Founder, of The Big Group which celebrates its 29th year in 2020. Originally founded to take advantage of the opportunities that arose through video replacing film as a portable, simpler and more effective method of communication, the now £20m business adapted and embraced the digital change that swept the marcoms industry and Big Group now employs 160 people across 5 office locations in the UK and The Netherlands.
More importantly and more relevant to this nomination is taking his team with him on the journey. Investing, supporting and guiding new talent into the creative and digital industry through Sponsorship, apprenticeships, work experience, funding certifications in specific platforms and skill sets, flexible working to enable staff to complete university degrees; and allowing his team to prosper and grow through his trust in their talent, capabilities and passion.
Huge congratulations to Ed! #BIMA100
