On 11th September, some of the Southwest’s brightest business stars dined at Bath Racecourse to celebrate the Bath Chronicle Business Awards 2014.

Since its launch four years ago, The Bath Chronicle Business Awards event is now one of the most prestigious on the Bath business calendar.

Brett was thrilled to be named Business Person of the Year 2014.

“I have to admit that I was a very reluctant entrant! But I took one for the team, we entered, and I’m happy now for us all that I got my arm twisted. Winning the award is a real thrill and a great thing for the business. It feels good to have support for all our hard work”, said Cloud Direct CEO Brett Raynes.

“Since I set up Cloud Direct in Bath 10 years ago, we’ve been in profit each year, have grown consistently, and have this year secured £2.74m in funding to really boost the company onto the next level. We’re investing in new technologies and people, while keeping a firm hand on our customer management, with a new CRM strategy in place. We’re also looking to acquire two complementary businesses in London, which will do great things for us in Bath, too.”

Earlier this year, Cloud Direct was the proud winner of ‘Employer of the Year’ at the Bath Chronicle and Bristol Post Apprentices Awards.
