2019 Chamber Business Awards
Regional win for Extech Cloud
Extech Cloud, an IT Support and Cloud technology company, with its headquarters based in Burgess Hill in Mid Sussex, has been crowned one of the winners in the Southern Region heats of the Chamber Business Awards 2019. Now in their 16th year, the Awards are a highlight of the business calendar, recognising the key role that local businesses play in driving the UK economy.
The Customer Commitment Award winner, Extech Cloud, will now go forward to represent the Southern Region in the national finals, which take place in London in November.
Francis Martin, President of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said:
“Businesses are the backbone and driving force of the UK economy. Even in the face of uncertain times, they continue to show their resilience and strength – creating opportunities for employment, investment and growth.
“Our judges are always impressed by the high standard of submissions, and the calibre of entries this year was no different. The finalists in the Chamber Business Awards represent the best of this country’s entrepreneurial spirit, creativity and hard-work.
“The Chamber Business Awards are the perfect opportunity for us to celebrate our business communities’ achievements, to take stock of the outstanding performances of UK businesses over the past year, and to encourage and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.”
Andrew Hookway, Managing Director at Extech Cloud, said:
“Extech Cloud are delighted to have won the award for Customer Commitment. Every single day we strive to provide the highest level of service to our clients, who rely on us to provide a solid operational platform so they can be successful in their businesses. Providing IT and Cloud services means we are business-critical, and we are humbled to win this award for excellent customer service.”
Ana Christie, Chief Executive of Sussex Chamber of Commerce said:
“Each year, from Aberdeen to Plymouth, organisations of all sizes and from all sectors compete for the coveted titles. It is fantastic news, that one of our Chamber members, Extech Cloud, has received the south regional award for Customer Commitment. I wish them all the very best of luck in the finals in November.”
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
