CIMA ACCOUNTANT Alec Reed, who set up Reed’s recruitment business, received his knighthood yesterday at Buckingham Palace.
The former CIMA council member who earned his qualification through night school studies, set up Reed in 1960.
Sir Alec was knighted for his services to business and charity.
He founded many registered charities including Womankind and Ethiopiaid. He also set up TheBigGive.org.uk, which showcases more than 7,000 charities and has helped raise £20m in its first four years.
“I am particularly pleased that the award is in recognition of charity and business. Without charity, what’s the point of business? And without business there would be no charity,” said Sir Alec.
