Brendan Dawson, the Executive Director who submitted the entry on behalf of the business, said: “Qdos has focused on developing new and innovative ways of doing business, ensuring we are at the cutting edge, and specialists in our field – this is a tremendous accolade. I look forward to receiving the award with Steve on behalf of all our staff and colleagues.”
