Lawrence Jones, managing director of UKFast was last night named Technology Entrepreneur of the Year at business magazine EN's 'Entrepreneur of the Year' awards.
Jones has been recognised for his success in the hosting industry, expanding UKFast from a 2 person operation in 1999 to the UKs fastest hosting network in the UK today, employing over 100 people.
With over 3,000 clients on the UKFast network, Jones still maintains his entrepreneurial spirit, diversifying the company into various new industries over the last twelve months. Launching its own green data centre and opening recruitment company MySort, UKFast has been built upon Jones' own skills as well as the strengths and talents of his team members.
Jones states, "I am delighted to have been named Technology Entrepreneur of the Year, especially with such tough competition in this category. I could not have achieved this honour without the support of my business partner and wife Gail and the hard work of the highly motivated and passionate team at UKFast."
UKFast has also recently been shortlisted as a finalist for the MEN awards and UK IT industry awards 2010 and looks set for an exciting and successful year ahead.
The event, held at Mere Golf and Country Club, attracted hundreds of business leaders and celebrated entrepreneurial excellence across the North West.
