A business owner from Brighton has been featured in The Sunday Times' 'How I Made It' column. Rob Hill, Managing Director of The Stag Company, Hen Heaven and Eventa, was included in the Sunday paper's Business section last weekend in recognition of the company's remarkable level of growth since its inception in 2003.

'This particular article in the Business section has featured companies that are run by some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the UK, so to be included in the feature is an amazing achievement for the company,' said Hill.

The feature itself talks about how Hill was first offered a job at Hen Heaven working as a chaperone for ladies out on hen nights across the UK. Whilst gaining experience in the hen industry, Hill noticed how there was nothing on offer for men looking to arrange similar pre-nuptial parties.

'I realised that men needed more organising than women, so decided to do something about it.'

The article goes on to explain how Hill then sat down with a laptop and a web designer to create The Stag Company, offering stag weekends initially in the UK.

It would appear that the two combined companies are bucking the trend, having doubled in size in the midst of one of the worst economic crises in history. The Stag Company now offer packages in over 80 destinations across the UK and mainland Europe and in 2009 Hill took the plunge into the world of corporate Christmas parties by establishing Eventa.

'I wanted to fill the quiet period with work,' he explains.

Eventa is now one of the largest Christmas party companies in the UK, with The Stag Company and Hen Heaven claiming the biggest market share in their respective industries. Hill now employs 46 staff in his Brighton office, together with business partner Nick Shuff, and is looking to increase this figure over the coming 12 months.
