Ross Williams, CEO and Co-founder of Global Personals Ltd, was crowned a winner in the E-commerce category of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards yesterday. Global Personals Ltd launched in 2003 from an office in Ross Williams’s spare bedroom. With annualized revenues approaching £50 million, the company now operates in seven English speaking territories across the globe, including the USA and Australia. It has since gone on to employ 427 people and donated over £70,000 to charitable causes since the launch of the company’s Global Giving initiative.

Nice to see dating industry executives getting some positive press for a change, congrats to Ross and the WLD team.
