The Tech Success judging panel is made up of industry experts: Peter Judge, Editor at TechWeekEurope UK; Lorenzo Cavallaro, Lecturer (Assistant Professor) of Information Security in the Information Security Group (ISG) at Royal Holloway University of London; Ian Osborne, Project Director at techUK; Clive Longbottom, Co-Founder at Quocirca; Liam Newcombe, Technical Director at Romonet; Mark Taylor, CEO at Sirius; Vince Holton, Owner of Incisor TV; and Mark Young, Editor at Nimbus Ninety.
Last year the first Tech Success awards honoured IT staff in the UK who created innovative projects that benefitted their organisations. Winners included Jaguar Land Rover, Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust (CHUFT), and Cadoxton primary school in Wales. All of them used technology in new ways that showed how IT can help any organisation perform better.
Peter Judge, editor TechWeekEurope, said: “The categories were fiercely contested and we spent weeks deciding who should make the short-list and then be awarded winners. We’re really pleased with the level of interest we had this year and I would like to praise all those that took part and to say well done to the winning companies. Your awards are very well deserved.”
