Following his loss of job retrenchment in a restructuring program initiated by his employer at the backdrop of the global recession, he acquired a loan from his savings and made use of the skills he acquired while at work to establish his firm. Within a year of operation, the firm has grown tremendously and is now cited as one of the fastest upcoming indigenous companies in the country with a turnover of $7 million and boasting over 400 employees. The firm has provided the much needed boost to the economy and absorbed a number of employees thereby lowering the escalating level of unemployment. His company has been nominated twice for the best middle sized company award. Bailey was also crowned the 2012 Merck Business Leader of the Year Award Winner for his entrepreneurial skills.
