Business of the Year Awards 2010

Business of the Year Awards 2010

Coroni’s success is recognised in this year’s Evening Telegraph Business Awards.

Employees from Coroni Technology joined 300 other corporate guests in the Exec centre in Peterborough for the 2010 Evening Telegraph Business Awards.

Held in November, the annual event organised by East Midland Newspapers celebrates business achievement and includes nine award categories.

Mark Edwards, Evening Telegraph editor recognises the strength of Peterborough’s business community,

Our awards night puts the spotlight on the cream of the crop of our businesses and sends out a message to the rest of the country that, even in these difficult economic times, Peterborough is a centre of business excellence

Software specialist, Coroni, was highly commended in the Business of the Year category, awarded to the small business which has not only increased its own profitability and potential but has had a positive impact on the region. Financial success in 2010 is represented by a doubling of turnover and a 70% increase in users of its web applications. Equally important to the judges may have been the firm’s support for local schools – students from both the Thomas Deacon Academy and Deeping School have benefited from Coroni’s Internet expertise.

Roger Black MBE, World champion athlete, gold medal winner and motivational speaker, host for the evening commented,

It is always satisfying to see people being rewarded for their successes, particularly in these tough economic times, and to share in their experience. While some businesses have fallen by the wayside in the recession, it is clear that many have also prospered – this is their moment to celebrate
