Simon Piercy, Commercial Director, said of the recognition, “Contigo Ltd feels this award will provide significant recognition of both the team effort that has been required to produce enTrader and also the product’s innovation. Contigo Ltd is self funded and has grown from a group of four founders to a team of 14 in just three years. During this time Contigo Ltd has won significant contracts from major players in the UK and international energy trading and supply sector, to develop innovative bespoke solutions.
Our success coupled with a huge amount of effort, drive and passion has allowed Contigo Ltd to realise the dream of developing its enTrader product and successfully taking it to market in 2009.
The recognition combined with the publicity that the award would generate would propel Contigo Ltd’s ambitious sales program which will lead to growth within its business and the creation of new high value jobs in our region.”
Jonathan Yeomans, Marketing Director, added: “The recognition provides a superb PR opportunity for both Contigo Ltd and our clients. To date we feel that Contigo Ltd has been a “best kept secret” and this recognition will help raise our profile in many ways including industry recognition for the innovative solution that we have successfully taken to market. It also provides a huge boost to the Contigo team morale and client perception of both the enTrader product and the 'Contigo brand'.”
Mike Musson, ICT Cluster Manager, added: “This year we've seen the highest standard of award entries yet and competition has been incredibly tough. The ongoing judging process has been rigorous and the panel faced a major challenge deciding the final winners. It's fantastic to see the quality and diversity of technology companies the West Midlands region has to offer.
