Nutbourne has been shortlisted in the Rising Star category at the CRN Channel Awards which celebrate technological innovations and advancements, and recognise the ingenuity and exceptional achievements of the UK channel industry.
The company was shortlisted in the same category in 2016 but didn’t win; for Managing Director Marcus Evans, the awards will be a good barometer of how far the company has come.
“It’s nice to benchmark ourselves against the industry and the competition. There are some very big companies entering – the last time we were there some of the winners included, Microsoft, Dell and Oracle. It’s tough competition and will mark a real step up for us if we win.”
Having won in three categories at the Archant Thames Gateway Business Awards, Marcus is keen to add another gong this year, in part for the prestige but also to recognise and honour the hard work of the company’s staff.
“I’d really like to win. Of course it’s nice to have the awards because people reference them and they’re recognition of the company’s service. But it’s even nicer to have them because they’re recognition for our team and they’re something we can share in as a group.”
The CRN Channel Awards take place on November 15 at the Battersea Park Events Arena. For more information visit events.channelweb.co.uk/awards/static/home
