The awards were held at the Aspire in Leeds on 26th March 2015. The Top 50 Tech list is compiled based on growth over the last 3 years. The Awards provide a unique way of celebrating the innovative technologies and businesses developed in the region, and recognise those who have contributed to their success.
“Featuring at number 29 in the list, amongst many of the most up and coming digital and tech businesses in the region, is great testament to our growth across the world in recent years and provides worthwhile recognition of all the hard work put in by all our teams in the UK, France and North America, both within our Voiteq and Cirrus Logistics businesses”, commented David Stanhope, CEO of the Centriq Group.
