We’re incredibly proud to hear that our very own Steven Allan has been nominated for the ‘Business Development Manager of the Year’ award at this year’s Mancoolians awards ceremony here in Manchester.

This nomination is a truly deserved acknowledgement for his drive, commitment and determination and we have everything crossed for him on the big night.

Steven is an absolute integral part of the Melbourne team. As any of you that have met and dealt with him either in business or at a networking event he is a guy you can’t help but like. It must be his natural charm! He doesn’t accept anything but the best for either himself or clients. He is one of our longest serving members of staff who has supported our growth tremendously over the years and we can safely say we would not be where we are today without Steven’s involvement.

We get to work with Steven every single day, we know how great he is and how much he deserves this award. It’s been exciting for us to get our customers echoing our love for him with their own accounts of why he deserves to win.

So exciting, that we just can’t keep the comments to ourselves…

Phil Yeomans @ Maginus

I have worked with Steven for over five years now and have always found that his innovative approach and clear understanding of our business allows him to ensure everything runs smoothly for us.  He never bothers us with unwanted or unnecessary information but will make targeted suggestions that have clear benefits for us as a customer.  Steven is one of the major factors in us considering Melbourne to be one of our most reliable and trusted partners.”

Iain Clarke @ IDH Group

“When we engaged with Melbourne we were under extremely tight time constraints to implement a complex infrastructure topology. From day 1, everything we asked of Steven was delivered in a timely and professional way. I am sure that without Steven’s hard work and flexible approach the project would not have been possible within the aggressive timescales imposed upon us.”

 Nicholas Rhind @ CTI Digital

“From first meeting Steven it was clear that his priority was to truly understand our business and specific requirements, which was enormously refreshing. On doing so he was keen to provide us with information on the various options that existed and the pros and cons of each which enabled us to make the most appropriate selection for us. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending that anyone looking at their hosting requirements should definitely make sure to have a chat with Steven”

James Wilkinson @ CTI Digital

“I have known Steven for many years, and always impressed with his energy for networking and delivering new business. He is active in a few networking meetings and is always available to help assist in anything we have needed. He knows his products very well, a very technical, driven new business manager. 

His success is evident by the success which Melbourne has had whilst he has been with the business and we wish him the best of luck with the award nominations.”

Steven absolutely deserves to walk away with this award on the night. So please please please take the few minutes to vote for Steven for Business Development Manager of the Year!
