The 2017 Digital Technology Awards took place last week providing a platform to showcase and reward the talent, innovation and ambition of businesses within the Scottish digital technology sector. As members of ScotlandIS and avid promoters of Scotland’s digital economy, both Head Resourcing and Atkinson MacLeod Executive Search were delighted to sponsor these awards.
Lee Murray, Director of Head Resourcing presented Edinburgh based Nucleus Financial Serivces with the B2B Technology Product/Service award. This was for Narrate, a new type of client reporting tool for financial advisors. The judges felt this to be a truly modern digital financial platform offering great user benefits.
Ian MacLeod, Director of Atkinson MacLeod Executive Search presented Gillian Docherty of DataLab with the Chief Executive of the Year award. This was for her leadership of an ambitious team that has delivered 45 data science projects with a total estimated impact on the economy of over £66 million since the innovation centre was established in 2015.
The event highlights the increasing importance of the digital technologies industry in Scotland and there were a number of other deserving winners on the night including Skyscanner, HotDocs, StormID, Aggreko, Edge Testing Solutions, CodeClan, Digitonic, FreeAgent and Aggreko.
Overall, it was a fantastic evening of celebration and achievement but also a great opportunity to network and build relationships. We look forward to being a part of it in 2018.
