For those who don’t know, I’m the IT Director over at UKFast.net, for the past 3 years we have won an award at the ISPA Awards hosted down in London. This year seemed to be no exception and we won the title of Best Dedicated Hosting 2008, this was a bit of a shock as you sort of expect, that no matter how good you are as a company, the judges will have a bit of worry about crowning you again for another year.
Either this wasn’t the case and I was being a bit paranoid, or we really are that good – for those of you who are customers of ours then I will let you decide that but I definitely would like to think the way the company is run, the support that we offer and the way we are always striving to improve and take on criticism as a growing business has a lot to do with it. Obviously I am going to be biased towards where I work but that also means I have first hand experience of the work and dedication that the staff put in, especially the support team who do go above and beyond the call of duty to help clients get to where is needed.
Our MD, Lawrence Jones accepted the award and thanked the team behind making things happen but I do have to say – couldn’t wish for a better person to work for. The amount I have learned as time has gone on with regards to performing the role I have within the company is amazing, having come from pretty much a full technical background with a bit of management experience has meant it’s been a strange but interesting learning curve which I’m sure is going to continue……..
