We are delighted to announce that last night, DDC OS’s Solutions Director John Callachan was awarded the Strategic Leader of the Year Award by the National Outsourcing Association. This year’s ceremony was held at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, taking place outside of London for the very first time.

Colin Gray, Managing Director of DDC OS, said, “This is a fantastic achievement for John and indeed for DDC, the award indicates that as a company we are now being recognised for our strategic vision in the outsourcing industry.”

Beating strong competition from leaders at companies such as WebHelp and Sykes, John was recognised for his strategic vision and his endeavours to create a more positive profile for the outsourcing industry.

Kerry Hallard, CEO of the NOA, commented: “The NOA’s Professional Awards have always been about celebrating the fabulous talent of individual workers, collaborative teams and forward-thinking organisations operating in the outsourcing industry in the UK and beyond, and the considerable success they deliver collectively on a day-to-day basis. Following an unprecedented number of entries across 16 diverse categories, we were delighted to once again recognise and celebrate outsourcing’s finest representatives. It’s so important to raise the profile of those that excel in outsourcing and service delivery, and build upon the size and positive reputation of the industry by doing so.”
