Tony Pearson And HBP Systems achieve nationwide acclaim at the UK IT Industry Awards

This year, HBP Systems and its Operations Director, Tony Pearson, who has been with the company since 1997, were both shortlisted at the prestigious UK IT Industry Awards 2019 – commonly known as “The Oscars of IT”.

This is the first time the Scunthorpe-based, IT company had entered the nationwide awards, and they were “ecstatic to be shortlisted among the likes of John Lewis and Virgin Trains”.

With the company in the running for Best Place To Work IT, its Ops Director, Tony, was one of just four finalists for the Operational Leader Award – which no one told him had been entered for.

“There was no need to consult with Tony regarding his role or responsibilities. One, he would have said not to bother. And two, everyone who works at HBP knows exactly how hard Tony works and how dedicated he is to the company, his colleagues and customers,” says Managing Director, Joanne Dixon, who has worked with Tony for over 20-years.

The ceremony took place on Wednesday, 13th November 2019 at Battersea Evolution in London, with over 1,400 guests in attendance and the winners being announced by actress, Sally Phillips.

“I didn’t think I stood a chance of winning, especially as my mandatory interview and presentation with the judges had to be conducted over Facetime on my way back from France where I’d been on a pre-booked holiday,” says Tony.

Nevertheless, even in the difficult circumstances, Tony certainly made an impression on the judges, as on the night he was presented with the Highly Commended Operational Leader Award.

In addition to Tony’s award, HBP Systems is delighted with its shortlisting for Best Place To Work In IT, as it is a monumental step towards their goal of being a Time’s Top 100 Company To Work For.
