Double Eleven scores a hat trick at the NE Business AwardsThursday Night, Double Eleven scooped three awards in the North East Business Awards. The awards included Small Business of the year, Newcomer of the year and Science & Technology business of the year.
“We were absolutely delighted at winning three separate awards, Lee and the others who began this company from his loft took a huge risk and got us to where we are today. In less than two short years we are a business with a sustainable competitive advantage in the industry. The business is led by a strong management team and powered by a highly technical development team giving us a unique position in the industry's global value chain’” said Kimberley Turner, finance director of Double Eleven.
The NE Business Awards, currently in their 13th year represent the region’s biggest and most prestigious business competition that highlights and rewards the success of the most outstanding firms over the last 12 months. Companies from all sectors were eligible to compete and as such Double Eleven faced strong competition for the honours, as the awards attracted over 280 entrants.
Jason Fitzpatrick of Virgin Money, sponsors of the Newcomer of the Year award, said on the night: “Double Eleven delivers an exciting product that delights its customers in its quality and creative design. They have spotted their niche in the market, do things that are a bit different and believe in themselves. We wish them well for an exciting future.”
Prof Cliff Hardcastle, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Teesside University who sponsored the Science & Technology award, said “It’s fantastic to see such a young and dynamic technology company – founded and led by a Teesside graduate - performing so well. This is testament to the fact that Tees Valley has the talent, the ideas and the people to deliver real business success.”
Stephen Catchpole, Tees valley Unlimited’s managing director said;
“Double Eleven are a shining example of the skill, ambition and ingenuity that we have right here in Tees Valley.
They have shown how it is possible to not only operate but excel in an international market and are promoting the very best of Teesside across the highly competitive digital sector.
“This recognition holds them up as leaders in their field and as true ambassadors for the area.”
Lee Hutchinson, CEO said “Given the state of the overall economy and the general shrinkage of the the UK games industry, these awards help ratify our niche in these challenging times.”
“We are all still on cloud nine, and are certainly looking forward to the regional finals.”
Double Eleven will now move on and compete again in the regional finals on April 26.
