Dimension Data proves its leadership across the African continent by winning two key awards at the 2009 African ICT Achievers Awards.
Dimension Data once again proved its mettle across the African continent, winning the Top ICT Company in Africa Award at the 11th African ICT Achievers Awards ceremony held on 5 December 2009.
Dimension Data walked away with two of the most significant awards, with a second award for the Top Businessman in Africa Award being awarded to Jason Goodall, Managing Director for Dimension Data Middle East & Africa. Dimension Data was also featured in the top 3 finalists for the Top ICT Workplace Provider in Africa Award.
“The awards bear testament to our commitment and focus on executing against our strategy, and the work we do with Governments, clients, partners and communities across the continent” says Andile Ngcaba, Chairman for Dimension Data Middle East & Africa. The Top ICT Company in Africa Award goes to the best company within the ICT industry in Africa. Dimension Data was chosen out of the finest ICT companies and business people across the African Continent, and came out on top. Ngcaba further stated that it was through the commitment and passion of the 5000 Dimension Data people across the region that made this possible.
The Top Businessman Award for Jason Goodall is also a very significant award for the company. This award honours a man in the ICT sector for his significant contribution to his organisation and society and for achievement in the field of ICT. Dimension Data has won this award for two consecutive years with Allan Cawood, CEO Dimension Data Middle East & Africa walking away with the award last year. Dimension Data is thrilled to have one of their people carry this honour once again as it highlights the company’s ability to develop true leaders that will continue to provide mentoring and development within the organisation. This stands them in good stead for remaining a leading enterprise amongst their peers.
Since its inception in 1998, the African ICT Achievers Programme has built a strong foundation of recognition and reward for those ICT individuals and organisations that have made a difference to the ICT industry in Africa. The awards received by Dimension Data are an acknowledgement of their ability to achieve outstanding growth through operational excellence. Dimension Data has positioned themselves as a trusted advisor to all of their stakeholders and as a leading innovator winning the hearts and minds of all people.
