LANGSTONE, South Wales — 21st Nov, 2023 — Local Langstone, South Wales based business leader, Mark Sweeny, has been recognised by the prestigious Great British Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, after being awarded ‘Wales Technology Entrepreneur of the Year’.

The Founder and Chief Executive of fast-growing digital consultancy, de Novo Solutions, Mark boasts an impressive career within the tech sector, having built, scaled, and exited multiple businesses before launching de Novo Solutions in late 2020.

Over the last three years, de Novo Solutions has honed a niche in the experience economy by ‘re-imaging the world of work’ through the delivery of data driven personalised experiences over standardised business processes using Oracle and ServiceNow technologies and is now on track to exceed an impressive £5 million turnover by the close of its current financial year.

One of the most prestigious events on the UK business community calendar, the Great British Entrepreneur Awards is deemed the ‘Grammy’s of entrepreneurship’, celebrating, and championing the stories of founders and creators across the UK.

With the award’s ceremony hosted at Grosvenor House, London, Mark was one of six finalists, where his unique approach to market and capability to accelerate growth by 600% over the last 12 months alone impressed the Awards’ judges, culminating in him winning ‘Wales Technology Entrepreneur of the Year’.

Discussing this impressive award win, Mark Sweeny, Founder and Chief Executive of de Novo Solutions, said: “2023 has been an incredible year for de Novo Solutions, where we have not only developed and launched new revolutionary cloud-based solutions to market, but have also executed a number of exciting projects, delivering impactful results for our growing client base.

It’s early growth and success has also been recognised by the ERP Today awards, where the de Novo Solutions team were commended for ‘HR Tech Innovation’ following the development of its own Odyssea™, an innovative industry cloud-based solution built upon cutting-edge Oracle Cloud technologies developed specifically to streamline and centralise complex administrative tasks for the public sector.
