A week of awards!

News Published on 17 November 2022

What a week! We’ve been thrilled that PDMS and the achievements of our team, as well as individuals, have been recognised over the course of seven days last week.

On Friday 11th November, the PDMS Board attended a fabulous black-tie dinner to celebrate the Isle of Man Institute of Directors Awards.  The evening celebrated the leadership and entrepreneurial skills from many different organisations across the private and third sector on the Isle of Man. IoD Isle of Man also raised £2,000 on the evening for The Royal British Legion.

We were delighted when Catriona Watt, our Chief Commercial Officer, picked up the Young Director of the Year Award whilst our Chief Operating Officer, Jayne won the Director of the Year for Small & Medium Enterprise.  We buck the trend in the tech sector when it comes to females in our Executive team with a representation of 57%. Well done to Cat and Jayne on their very well-deserved awards.

Fast forward six days and we were putting on our posh evening attire again, this time for the Media Isle of Man’s (formerly Isle of Man Newspapers) Awards for Excellence. The Awards recognise the success of companies, individuals and the private sector and charitable sector. This year’s glamourous awards ceremony was hosted by Ex-BBC presenter and journalist Louise Minchin.

PDMS had been shortlisted for the prestigious Business of the Year award category, kindly sponsored by Lexington. This award recognises an Isle of Man business that has maintained consistent growth and strong performance, understands its customers, has an engaged workforce with effective leadership, demonstrates effective use of technology to engage with its stakeholders (customers, employees, etc) and is continually innovating to support future growth.

We were thrilled to pick up the award which is testament to the hard work, commitment and enthusiasm of our team who work hard to deliver digital projects that make a real difference to our clients.
