  • BMLL also highly commended for ‘Best Workplace for Talent Investment’

  • Further, BMLL CEO, Paul Humphrey, named as one of the ‘Top 1% Leaders of the Year’

London, 20th November 2023: We are delighted to announce that we have won multiple awards in the latest Harrington Starr Top 1% Workplace Awards. BMLL was awarded ‘Best Sales Professionals’ and was highly commended for ‘Best Workplace for Talent Investment’. In addition, our CEO Paul Humphrey was named among the ‘Top 1% Leaders of the Year’.

Harrington Starr appointed an independent, expert panel of judges to review all submissions, who were impressed by the dedication shown to creating work environments and cultures that place people at the centre of the story.

“The awards recognise the very best and brightest businesses and leaders in fintech, who create companies that consistently attract, engage and retain the best talent. In doing this, invariably the companies thrive, and their performance, growth and innovation stand out”, according to Toby Babb, CEO of Harrington Starr.

According to the judges, BMLL won the ‘Best Sales Professionals’ award for the following:

“In a competitive category, BMLL’s compelling narrative for attracting and retaining the best salespeople stood out. They have an outstanding product backed by an exceptional technical team. Strong funding is combined with a huge and viable market to sell to. Importantly, the team is listened to, backed and valued, and there is a special culture in the business. The team clearly enjoy what they are doing and are given opportunities to organically grow and develop. It’s an exciting time for the business and truly a great place to work with colleagues who are very much at the top of their game.

Furthermore, BMLL was highly commended for ‘Best Workplace for Talent Investment’

“We want to express our sincere appreciation to BMLL for their unwavering commitment to prioritising employee satisfaction and investment, particularly during a substantial phase of growth. It’s commendable how they’ve managed to uphold those crucial aspects, which can often and unintentionally be side-lined amidst expansion. This dedication speaks volumes about their approach to fostering a thriving work environment.”

Paul Humphrey, BMLL’s CEO, was ranked among the top 1% leaders of the year by the judging panel, who took into account comments from his Executive Team members:

“Paul leads from the front and is extremely accessible as a senior executive. Leading the business through significant funding, Paul will never ask the team to do something he wouldn’t do. He has vast experience and is constantly looking for opportunities to give people the support and training they need to grow. He has built a team of super smart professionals and invests time and effort to help them rise to the highest levels they can. A truly inspirational role model.”

Paul Humphrey, CEO of BMLL, said: “The BMLL team is very excited to be recognised in the Harrington Starr Top 1% Workplace Awards. As a company and leadership team, we place enormous emphasis on team and culture. We work very hard to establish a positive and collaborative environment, by encouraging and celebrating people who make a difference, and recognising them for doing so. This is true all the way from working on our product, data coverage and go-to-market strategies, to initiating and carrying out charity work as a team. Everybody, every day, makes a difference. This is how we continue to drive the success that BMLL has become.”
