You have pizza and champagne for lunch at the Annual Timico Network Operations Awards.

This has been a special year because the team has had the new data centre project to contend with on top of having to deliver another record year of sales.

The data centre has been delivered on time and everyone is busing a gut to get the last few customer networks provisioned before the Christmas break, and as it happens our financial year end.

Hover your mouse over each photo to find out more about the person in it.  The prizes are being handed out by Timico CEO Chris Tombs.

Group Ops Director Calum Malcolm stays discretely in the background but this is his team and a special thanks must go to him from the business for making it all happen.

The overall winner of Engineer of the Year is David Sears whose prize was accepted on his behalf by Penny Wilkinson. David, or Biscuit as he is known internally, happens to be on holiday. His prize is, wait for it, a holiday – choice as I recall of Paris, Brussels, Rome or Scunthorpe (don’t knock it until you’ve tried it). Well done guys – it’s great to work with you 🙂

My iPad doesn’t have mouse to hover with so I can’t read more… I’d be interested to see what award Laura received ? She did a fine job of project managing our migration to Timico from Vodafone… Highly recommended from a customer perspective.

Thanks Paul. The feedback is very appreciated and I will make sure that the business hears of your feedback re Laura. She won an award for most effort in the quarter – nominated by her peers so you are not the only one who thinks she has done a great job.
