They also received the accolade of being highly commended in the Best Tech Company section and were short listed for the Customer Service award.
Dave White, managing director of ITRM said “Our Commitment to the Community isn’t something we do for reward or PR. We do it to demonstrate our values to our staff and support the people in the borough. It is a fantastic thing and I urge all businesses to do it.”
This year’s winner of the Business of the Year 2017 is Handy AV who had enjoyed success earlier in the evening, winning the Best Technology Company category, before being announced as the winner of the top award. A delighted and stunned Aubrey Wright, Managing Director of Handy AV said: “Thank you for the honour of this award. This is our year.

But once we found them in Bexley it all came together – the opportunity arose and accelerated our growth.”
Cllr Teresa O’Neill OBE, Leader of the London Borough of Bexley, said: “I was really impressed with all of the finalists. They have shown huge ambition and innovation, and prove that Bexley is a great place to do business.”
