AN ENTREPRENEUR will dine at Richard Branson’s house after his firm was named one of the fastest-growing companies in Britain.

Michael Gietzen, from Eastbourne, took over his father’s exhibition stand company eight years ago.

Now the 34-year-old has transformed it into Identity, an international events agency which helped organise the Nato summit in Watford earlier this month.

“Needless to say, as one the fastest growing companies in Britain we are always on the look out for new talent to join the team,” he said.

Identity was named alongside fast food firm Five Guys and BrewDog brewery in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100, a list of the fastest-growing company in the country.

Now Mr Gietzen is to dine with other rising stars at Richard Branson’s family home in Oxfordshire.

“Our local team is exceptional,” he said.

“It is their hard work and immense talent that has provided us with the ability to deliver every aspect of a show-stopping event for our clients.”
