Andrew Gilbert, the Managing Director of data centre firm Node4, has been named as a finalist for a prestigious industry award.
Andrew, who has already won a string of high profile prizes, has made the shortlist for the Channel Entrepreneur of the Year award. The award, which will be handed out by trade publication Comms Business, will be presented in a ceremony that recognises excellence and innovation among IT resellers, vendors, distributers and service providers.
The winner of this, and other prizes at the Comms Business Awards 2012, will be announced at an awards dinner at Lancaster London on 21 June.
Having started Node4 at the age of 23 and growing at an impressive rate, Andrew has already been recognised as European Data Centre Entrepreneur of the Year last year at a separate awards ceremony.
He said, “I am overjoyed at being recognised in this way and being nominated for this award. It’s always an honour when you are shortlisted for prize within the industry you are passionate about.
“Entrepreneurship is about listening to the demands of the marketplace, finding the product or service that caters to that need and doing so in a way that pleases and surpasses the expectations of your customers. In everything we have done at Node4, we have taken every care to remain relevant and cutting edge with our offering and solutions such as the n4Cloud have helped a number of companies to take advantage of the many benefits of the cloud. As the technology evolves, our challenge will be to maintain our reputation as an industry leader.”
