Happy Birthday To Our CEO – Gilles Baudet!

Everyone at The Interactive Team got together this week to celebrate the 35th birthday of our brilliant CEO, Gilles Baudet.

If you hadn’t guessed by now, The Interactive Team are big on, well, our team! We love any excuse to celebrate, eat cake, drink champers and more importantly, get together to make videos! So, in regular fashion, with the approach of the birthday of our Chief Executive Officer – Gilles Baudet – we decided to give him a video with a twist! I mean, of course, we all think of him as the best boss in the business but we thought it might be a fun idea to go a “little overboard” this time…

No holding back on that one eh? At the age of 35, Gilles has achieved so much but as he continues to tell us over and over (and over) again, he’s not even started yet. In 2012, after experiencing years in different sectors of the sales and marketing industry, Gilles grabbed his credit card and 2 amazing salesmen he’d met along the way (that’s right – Huw and Karl) and launched The Interactive Team. Now, just over 3 years on, what was once just 3 people in a tiny office, is now over 200 people across 5 major UK cities. For Gilles, each birthday is a significant reminder of a) how far he has come and b) how far he has to go, and he continues to tell us that he definitely doesn’t want to do it alone!

Gilles has always loved and admired his team around him, and we’re all pretty thrilled to have formed a business built up purely of average people with the above average desire to succeed. We all have unique opportunities within the company, and we couldn’t be more grateful for that and guess what? It’s all thanks to the birthday boy for making it happen!

Happy birthday Gilles – we all hope you had a wonderful 35th birthday!

A message from our CEO, Gilles Baudet

It’s crazy to think we’re in August of 2015 and already, we’ve achieved so much in such a short space of time. Over the last year or so, I have had the unique opportunity of working closely alongside The Interactive Team’s Managing Director and CEO, Gilles Baudet. Lately, we have been discussing the exciting changes to our business, whereby we are now operating on a pure sales model. Here’s what the man at top – Gilles Baudet – had to say about these new and exciting amendments to The Interactive Team’s front end business model…

“One of the biggest things I’ve learnt so far, or what’s really stood out to me, is that in order to be successful, or to run a successful business, you have got to be the best in your field. We are engineering our business model to fall at the forefront of the lead generation and data industry. We are not a normal company (which I’m sure you’ve figured out by now) because our business model allows our people to grow from the ground level up. We are revolutionising the way we do things because it brings us back to the Four Partners, and what people have got to understand is that we’re in the business of doing things right, and doing things for our long-term careers!

Our goal is to become the number one lead generation company in the entire United Kingdom, and we’ll do whatever it takes to achieve it because we’re willing to do what others companies won’t so that we can create opportunities like other companies can’t. If we are able to achieve this, we will have built the foundations for a strong, long-lasting, successful business, with strong, long-lasting, successful careers within.

This is why I’m so excited every day, because our new sales-focused lead generation model will definitely split the average from the average with the above average desire to succeed, not to mention separating those in it for the long term with those looking for the short term.

We’re building a business for longevity, and we work to create opportunities for long-lasting careers, and our pure sales model will take us there as long as we continue to show off a relentless work ethic and powerful attitudes towards revolutionising our industry and work together towards our one common goal.”
