Jason Baker, our CEO said:

“We are thrilled to have made it into the regional finals for the South East of England.  Since Citrus Ornge launched in June 2018, I have witnessed the company grow from just me with my laptop to now having a team of twelve with a fantastic portfolio of clients and offices at Platf9rm, based in Hove Town Hall.

“In addition, we have a strong social conscience at the heart of our business where we employ and offer those in addiction rehabilitation the opportunity to start back on a career path.  We have strong ties with the Brighton and Hove Recovery Service (formerly PavilionsDrug and Alcohol Services) and other community-based projects in Brighton and Hove and have employed three people directly referred by their team.  There are a number of members of Citrus Ornge, including myself, who share the same history and it has been immensely rewarding seeing their careers flourish and soar.

 “After the challenges 2020 has given us all, it is so refreshing to receive such positive news and I’m delighted the team are being recognised for all of their hard work and dedication.  We wish everyone participating in the entrepreneur awards the very best of luck, we are honoured to be up against some fantastic organisations.”
