Two members of staff have been shortlisted in the prestigious UK IT industry awards.
JP Norman, Head of Technology & Governance has been shortlisted in the ‘Security Professional of the Year’ category, with Service Desk Analyst Mercedes Coombes, a Service Desk Level 2 Analyst, selected for ‘IT Service & Support Professional of the Year’.
The two Amicus ITS candidates will be facing tough competition and are up against entrants from Virgin Media, LV Insurance, National Grid, Lloyds Banking Group and KPMG.
The UK IT Awards, part of The Chartered Institute for IT, recognise excellence and outstanding performance throughout the UK computer industry. The awards focus on the contribution and achievements of individuals, projects, organisations and technologies that have excelled in their use and the successful development and deployment of IT in the past 12 months.
Amicus ITS Managing Director, Steve Jackson said: “We are thrilled to have been shortlisted for what is one of the most important awards for our industry. It is an incredible achievement and deserved recognition for these individuals who bring innovation and insight into their roles to help our company provide an outstanding service to our clients.
“We are up against stiff competition from some of the biggest household names in the UK. Nonetheless, earlier this year we were crowned No.1 IT Managed Services Provider in the UK and Europe and placed 13th in the world earlier this year, against over 2,000 IT companies worldwide, so I firmly believe we have every potential to go the full distance and wish both JP and Mercedes every success as finalists.”
Winners will be announced at a glitzy awards ceremony taking place in London on the 12th November 2014.
