Credo Group Managing Director and Founder Tim Brady has been honoured with a 40under40 business award which recognises outstanding young entrepreneurs.
The Credo Group, headed by CEO Tim Brady has also been named as one of the 100 fastest growing companies in BRW Magazine’s Fast 100 companies for 2008 and 2009.
"My mother was one of 12 children and my father was raised in the bush by entrepreneurial parents. I was fortunate to come from a supportive and Christian environment as part of a large extended family and these factors have formed my values framework," said Mr Brady.
A former accountant and national sales director for a recruitment agency, Mr Brady identified a niche in the market for workforce mobilisation services with a strong values based culture.
"We have strong working partnerships with organisations such as Salvation Army Employment Plus and Mission Employment providing opportunities for long-term unemployed people," said Mr Brady.
Credo translates to mean trust in Latin and its values are credibility, reliability, efficiency, diligence and opportunity. It has an annual turnover of more than $20 million dollars and has experienced average growth of 60 per cent over the past three years.
“In line with our company’s values, specifically ‘opportunity’, we set up the Aspire program to develop our employees to their full potential and give back to the community. For example, our partnership with the Sacred Heart Mission assists the homeless by providing them with hot meals every day of the year,” Mr Brady said.
"We actively encourage and enable our employees to volunteer on company time to work in the market garden whose produce is supplied to the Sacred Heart Mission soup kitchen. Our team assists in setting up wire fencing, laying water drip systems and weeding. Another group of our employees stand side by side with veteran volunteers and prepare and serve a hot lunch for the homeless," Mr Brady said.
Credo has offices in Perth and Melbourne with clients such as Wesfarmers, Woolworths and the giant China Metallurgical Group Corporation.
“The maxims which have motivated me to succeed in my personal and professional life are derived from my values, they are “no pain no gain” and “there has got to be a better way,” Mr Brady said.
