Five years after transferring from the public sector into a private business Cygnet IT CIC was named as a finalist in the Sutton Business Awards.
“This is a great recognition of what we have achieved in the last few years,” said chief executive Darren King.
Cygnet was born when all of the staff offered staff the opportunity to “spin out” on their own and they collectively decided to take the leap.
“Up until then we had delivered services through the Council but as funding reduced we were aware that there was a business that we could try and maintain but outside of the control and security of the Council. We became a social enterprise in the form of a Community Interest Company because we felt it reflected our commitment to the communities that we served. And now we have been recognised in the category of best Small and Medium sized Enterprise in the borough.”
Cygnet IT Services CIC provides IT support for schools, businesses and charities while also supporting schools through their management information services. For more details of the services that Cygnet can supply please go to www.cygnet.it
