My best hire - Nick Band, CEO and chairman of Band &Brown, on the 'awesome' Cheryl Gale

'Cheryl arrived on our doorstep from the US in 1996 - a diminutive figure with a suitcase and a personality bigger than her country. We were just starting to take the technology sector seriously, so she joined as an account director with a brief to drive our fledgling business.

'It was a case of fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ride. Her boundless energy and can-do attitude blew us and our clients away. Within months we had landed the big fish of technology companies - Cisco Systems.

'Her career and our tech business hit the fast lane, and within two years we had one of the biggest tech practices in town and Cheryl was on the board of directors. Sadly for us she went home to the US to raise a family in 2003.'

Cheryl Gale is now managing partner of Boston-based agency March PR.
