LONDON, November 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Qedis would like to congratulate all the winners from last night's UK IT Industry Awards! Special mention goes to Phil Pavitt, winner of the 'IT Leader of the Year Award', sponsored by Qedis. This is the fourth consecutive year that Qedis are supporting the event - identifying IT leaders who have successfully changed the industry and acted as trailblazers for transforming IT.

We'd also like to recognise Dave Henderson, from A N Media, who came runner-up. He has led a formidable transformation programme to reduce costs, whilst executing a new technology strategy to reposition the business and provide a platform for future growth. Dave has delivered remarkable results since being appointed CIO, at the time of a merger between Associated Newspapers and Northcliffe Media.

Qedis is upping the IT leadership game! It is helping CIOs in the public and private sectors to reshape their functions into strategic assets of the business. By focussing on building our clients' own capability, we're driving forward an agenda that enables our clients to achieve sustainable success, as well as raising the public profile of great IT leaders like Phil and Dave.

Many of the industry's leading CIOs were in attendance at the awards yesterday evening.
