Jay Ball shortlisted for ‘Visionary Leadership’ award, and DataKom for the ‘Customer Service Excellence’ award

DataKom is pleased to announce that MD, Jay Ball, has been shortlisted for the ‘Visionary Leadership’ award, and the company for the ‘Customer Service Excellence’ award at the Business Growth Awards South Wales.

The prestigious awards are devoted to honouring excellence in the business community in Wales.

They identify and celebrate the pioneers and the creativity of business, bringing together entrepreneurs, decision-makers, and influencers.

The ‘Visionary Leadership’ award recognises a business leader with the vision and drive to stand out in front of all others. A visionary leader creates and sustains a vision for their organisation and inspires the team to reach organisational goals.

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. He is now responsible for leading and managing the whole company, and inspires them to grow every day.

The ‘Customer Service Excellence’ award recognises businesses who have demonstrated the highest level of care for their customers. They consider the quality of service, products, communication, and customer feedback.

Managing Director Jay Ball said:

‘’It’s an honour to be recognised for such a prestigious award. It’s my mission to lead the team at DataKom, inspire them to reach organisational goals, and continue to contribute to the prosperity in Wales.’’

‘’Here at DataKom, we are extremely passionate about delivering excellent customer service. It’s a quality which sets our telecom company apart from others, and we are proud to be recognised for our effort to provide the best service possible.

‘’I am looking forward to attending the awards in March, and celebrating other like-minded businesses in the community.’’

The ceremony will be held on Friday the 2nd of March at the St Davids Hotel, Cardiff.

We wish Jay and the company the best of luck, we will let you know the result!
