On Wednesday, Dec. 8, the Augusta’s Entrepreneur Award was presented to Charlie Wall and Jason Kennedy – Co-founders of Loop Recruiting, during the Augusta Metro Chambers’ Member Economic Luncheon at the Augusta Marriott at the Convention Center. The Corporation of the Year award went to Savannah River Nuclear Solutions.

The business recruits employees for a variety of jobs, including direct-hire positions, temporary employment opportunities, and executive roles. Wall and Kennedy expressed appreciation for both their team and families for their support. “It’s really a testament to the support we’ve received from the Chamber,” says Kennedy, who earned his Master of Business Administration degree from Augusta University. He explains winning the award wouldn’t have been possible without the Loop Recruiting team. “Everyone works really hard,” Kennedy states.
