THE founder of IT firm L.E.A.D. IT Services has spoken of his pride after the company was shortlisted for a prestigious national award.
The Pride Park-based firm, which specialises in education, was named as a finalist in the Technical or IT Support Service category of the Bett Awards 2024.
The awards celebrate the businesses and individuals who are inspiring creativity and innovation using technology in the education sector.
And although L.E.A.D. IT Services – which currently supports 70% of schools across the city – didn’t win, managing director Lee Jepson said that he feels a great sense of pride in being shortlisted against industry leaders.
He said: “We’re so proud to have made the shortlist for the Bett Awards 2024 and to see our name appear alongside those we admire in the industry is a huge honour for us.
“The finals were held in London, and it was a brilliant night where we got to meet with the other finalists and found out more about what they do.
“I’d like to congratulate all the other winners and finalists, and the L.E.A.D. IT Services team for their continued hard work and dedication.”
