Leading UK law firm, Shepherd and Wedderburn is to sponsor this year’s Digital Technology Awards which showcase and reward innovation, expertise and ambition in Scotland’s flourishing tech sector.
ScotlandIS, the trade body for the technology industries, has been organising the prestigious competition, which recognises the innovation and commercial flair of enterprises of all sizes, for the last six years. Among the fourteen award categories, a new award, CEO of the Year, sponsored by Shepherd and Wedderburn, has been introduced, while other established awards range from International Technology Star to Best Investment Deal of the Year.
Shepherd and Wedderburn corporate partner, Stephen Trombala, who will present the award at the ceremony at the Old Fruitmarket, Glasgow on 20th April, commented:
“The Digital Technology Awards rightly celebrate and recognise the immense talent across the digital technologies in Scotland. At Shepherd and Wedderburn we have been privileged to work with many past winners of these awards including DeltaDNA, FanDuel, iomart and Nucleus; businesses which have created new and transformed existing markets throughout the world.
“The fact that we are seeing so many companies achieving commercial success, tells me that the Awards will be hotly contested and I am very much looking forward to celebrating the achievements of each of the finalists on the night.”
Polly Purvis, Chief Executive of ScotlandIS believes that it is only right to recognise and reward the achievements of our technology companies which contribute over £4bn per annum to the Scottish economy.
“The Digital Technology Awards”, she said “ are designed to shine a spotlight on our industry and the world-class companies based here in Scotland. We are delighted to have the support of sponsors such as Shepherd and Wedderburn, who have such a close connection and understanding of the sector.”
