Morson has been recognised and celebrated for its global growth success by taking home the award for ‘Growth in New Markets’ and the Insider International Trade Awards 2022!

The award celebrates the company that has made its presence felt in a new territory throughout the year, and Morson was nominated for our work in developing our Australian presence with the recent acquisition of ACRWORLD.

Morson and ACRWORLD

During and after the coronavirus pandemic, Morson reacted with an agile response that saw the Group evolve further into a consultancy service for clients looking or support in how to manage remote working. The directors of ACRWORLD reached out to Morson for assistance in assuring business continuity, with COO Adrian Adair having previously worked with ACRWORLD director Dave Deemer.

Having built their organisation successfully even through the most challenging of years, in 2021 the directors of ACRWORLD opted to sell the business. Based on previous experience it became clear that ACRWORLD and Morson were two businesses aligned in terms of culture, values and process. All discussions were held remotely to make the process as sustainable as possible.

Both ACRWORLD and Morson are people businesses, with strategies that put colleagues, clients and suppliers central to our success. ACRWORLD had noticed how our managed service provision and RPO offerings, as well as the wealth of proprietary software and platforms, would add immense value to what it already offered in its communities and networks.

The judges at the Insider International Trade Awards said Morson had an in-depth understanding of its sector and developed a targeted approach to international expansion, leading to a successful entry into a significant new market. They also commented on how Morson responded well to the challenges of the pandemic by developing additional consultancy services to help clients manage remote workers.

Ged Mason, Morson Group CEO, said:

I’m delighted to receive this recognition on an international trade basis. Throughout our history, we’ve completed over 15 acquisitions to extend our footprint overseas, in locations such as Canada, the USA, Italy and now Australia. A big thank you both my teams within the business who have worked hard in supporting our growth, as well as our external partners on acquisitions, Beyond Corporate LLP, Deloitte LLP, Barclays. As we have seen with ACRWORLD, as a business we are always looking for strategic growth opportunities, both organic and through acquisitions in new geographies with culturally aligned companies.

​Last month, it was announced that Morson Group has once again been named on the Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) Staffing 100 Europe list. Read more here
