Kate Westbrook, an expert in tech-business contracts, awards judge and head of commercial at Thrings said: “Thrings is very pleased to have supported the Techies Awards 2019. There is so much for Swindon and Wiltshire’s vibrant and thriving tech community to shout about, and these awards provide a platform to do just that. The abundance of talent and expertise here has been reflected in the large number of high-quality applications.
“With the strapline ‘expect extraordinary’, it’s no surprise that Cloud Innovation of the Year winner Appsbroker is punching well above its weight - for example in developing and delivering solutions on Google Cloud Platform for major brands such as Santander and Jaguar Land Rover. Beyond its many successes, I would like to congratulate the business for passionately and proactively contributing to making Wiltshire a tech hub.”
