The British Computing Society (BCS) today announced that the VP of IT Services, Andy Castle, has been short-listed as one of four national finalists in the prestigious IT Professional Awards 2005. This is the third time IXEurope, the fastest growing datacentre services company in Europe, has been chosen.
Andy Castle has been awarded Medalist in the IT Service Manager of the Year category and will now go forward to the finals that are due to take place in September this year. He will share centre stage with individuals from companies such as Yell Ltd, IBM, BT and Royal Bank of Scotland.
The BCS were overwhelmed by the record number of entries and Medalists in this yearÂs Awards. Both Andy and IXEurope underwent a rigorous judging process by an independent panel of accomplished industry leaders.
The judges were looking for a service manager or leader, able to demonstrate consistently high levels of service delivery through well-motivated and highly competent staff. Evidence of swift reaction to challenges and innovation were also important, as was the measurement of results and customer satisfaction.
Guy Willner, CEO of IXEurope, comments:
ÂThis is a tremendous accolade and it is great to see AndyÂs work rewarded in this way. He has developed and delivered key services that have enabled us to maintain our position at the top of the market in terms of providing exceptional levels of service.Â
