Managed cloud provider Novosco won a trio of top awards last night across two major Northern Ireland awards schemes.

The Belfast-headquartered business won IT Company of the Year at the Belfast Telegraph Business Awards and the overall Outstanding Business of the Year at the same event in the Crowne Plaza, Belfast.

Meanwhile, across the city, the company’s Managing Director, Patrick McAliskey, was named Business Personality of the Year at the Digital DNA Awards, which took place at St Anne’s Cathedral.

Novosco is a fast-growing business that employs 180 people, mostly in Belfast, and also has offices in Dublin and Manchester.

Its clients include two Premier League Football Teams, many of Northern Ireland’s top 100 companies, major universities in the UK and Ireland, some of the largest NHS Trusts in the UK, and several of London’s biggest housing associations.

The company was founded by local entrepreneurs Patrick McAliskey and John Lennon.

Judges in the Belfast Telegraph Business Awards said of Novosco: “This company has discovered a leading position in its market and has developed truly innovative solutions to help businesses become better and more efficient. Its CSR efforts are to be commended and its commitment to its own staff sets a standard that many could learn from.”

The judging panel also praised the strength and commitment of the leadership team at Novosco in steering the company to “phenomenal success”, and one judge commented: “Novosco has got the lot”!

Novosco, which is continuing to recruit for high-value roles in Belfast, invested over £1million to more-than-double its space in the city, from 5,000 sq ft to over 11,000 sq ft. Located in the Concourse 3 building at Catalyst, Novosco’s impressive new headquarters includes state-of-the-art offices, a gym, a library, a coffee dock, and a virtual reality room.
