As principal sponsor for the Belfast Telegraph IT Awards, the Telefónica Tech team, marked the achievements of the tech sector at the event held in Belfast on 11 November 2022.
The Belfast Telegraph Business Awards recognise and celebrate the business successes of individuals and organisations across Northern Ireland. Now in their 21st year, these prestigious awards attract entries from across all sectors and sizes of business.
Mark Gorton, CEO, Telefónica Tech UKI, said ,“It was fantastic to be at the Belfast Telegraph IT Awards, which is a brilliant celebration of the sector in Northern Ireland. The winners of the awards reflect the depth and quality of the industry and the quality work being done here by a wide range of companies and organisations. I was delighted to help mark the achievements of the sector at the event, including the extremely important role that many companies, departments and individuals have played in recent years, including supporting the economy, people and communities during challenging times. It was great to see colleagues enjoying industry camaraderie and craic as well.
He continued, “For Telefónica Tech UK&I, sponsoring the awards is a perfect opportunity for us to reinforce our brand in the NI marketplace and to help us further tell our story. You may well already know that Telefónica Tech is one of the biggest names in digital transformation and a genuine global player, with operations in Europe and the Americas. Telefónica Tech UK & Ireland now has over 1,000 team members, 300 of which are based in Belfast, who offer world-leading expertise in areas including IT professional services, managed services, cyber security and multi-cloud solutions. So, we bring both the global reach and resource of a big brand and the local knowledge and expertise of our team based here in NI.
It was brilliant to showcase our brand again at the awards as the title sponsor. It was also fantastic to talk in person with industry colleagues. What is clear is that the IT sector – not withstanding some common challenges around skills and some other issues - is continuing to grow rapidly. The Belfast Telegraph IT Awards have a really important role to play in recognising this, and I want to thank the Belfast Telegraph, the judging panel and the other sponsors for their role in making the awards happen.
I would also like to congratulate all of the winners. There was a great variety of award recipients across the public, private and voluntary sectors, and in different areas of the industry. There were so many worthy winners. Many congratulations again.”
