Datakom Managing Director Jay Ball wins Entrepreneur of the Year!

Jay Ball, Managing Director at Datakom has been announced as Bridgend Business Forum Awards Entrepreneur of the Year 2016.

Jay started Datakom on a limited budget and sold his motorbike to fund his startup. Whilst working as a young manager for a phone company, he saw a gap in the market for quality business telecoms, and went for it.  He is now responsible for leading and managing the whole company, and he inspires them to grow. 

The awards, sponsored by Rockwool UK, saw BBC news correspondent Sian Lloyd host the ceremony held at the Coed-Y-Mwstwr Hotel.

Ian Jessop, Chair of Bridgend Business Forum said: “At the risk of sounding cliché, once again we have been extremely impressed with the quality and calibre of not only all winners but all entrants to this year’s business awards. Excellence remains at the heart of these awards, unveiling hidden gems in our business community, distinguishing enterprises from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.

“These businesses are the backbone of our economy, offering much needed investment, job opportunities and revenue to the local economy. I’d like to wish them all every continued success in the future.”

Congratulations to Jay and the team at Datakom!
