Celebrating being finalists in the Wakefield Business Awards


We’re very excited to share that we’ve been shortlisted in the Wakefield Business Awards 2023 delivered by We Are Wakefield Ltd.

We’ve been named finalists in the NEW BUSINESS OF THE YEAR, alongside other businesses from across the Wakefield area.

Director of The Virtual IT Director Ltd, Chris Lord, said: “It’s fantastic to be recognised as a finalist in these awards on a list which contains so many other amazing businesses in the Wakefield area.”

“The Virtual IT Director was founded by Chris in January this year to address a distinct gap in the IT market. We serve as the bridge between businesses and all their IT vendors, offering a personal touch in navigating their tech decisions.”

“Our role extends beyond mere guidance. We offer a fresh, objective perspective on a company’s IT challenges, aiding in cost control, enhancing cyber security, and overseeing projects with multiple vendors. Clearly, small and medium-sized businesses are seeking consistent IT direction, and that’s precisely what we deliver.”

Managing Director of We Are Wakefield, Claire Sutherley, said: “We’ve been really pleased with the number and quality of entries that we had for the second year of The Wakefield Business Awards. We planned them to be a celebration of all that’s amazing about the Wakefield business scene, and we’ve not been disappointed.

“The judging panel scored everything independently, with each entry being judged three times, so we know we have a robust shortlist which really reflects high-quality businesses.”

“We can’t wait to see everyone in the room on 9th November at the ceremony.”

Watch out for news from the ceremony, which is being held at Tileyard North, in November!
