NYnet CEO named Business Leader of the Year

Posted on 27th July 2023 in

NYnet’s CEO, Alastair Taylor, has been named Business Leader of the Year in the Harrogate Advertiser Business Excellence Awards just over a year after taking up the role.

Alastair, 37, became CEO last January although he has been part of the team at NYnet since 2013, playing a pivotal role in the firm’s evolution and personally programme directing £60m of digital projects for North Yorkshire.

After being appointed CEO, Alastair oversaw a complete rebrand for NYnet and launched an ambitious programme of growth to bring high speed, reliable and locally managed full fibre to the region’s business parks.

Previously only public sector organisations with a high need for resilience – such as the NHS and fire service – could take advantage of NYnet’s robust, speedy full fibre network.

“Now our region can reap the economic rewards of the groundwork we have done over the past 15 years to put North Yorkshire at the forefront of digital connectivity,” said Alastair.

“The expansion of our premium full fibre service into business parks will help put the region on the map for digital services and will bring our gigabit fibre solutions to more than 1,000 businesses across the county, boosting growth,” he added.

NYnet continues to work with the NHS and emergency services and is the UK’s largest provider of the public sector roaming service Govroam. The firm was also behind a project that has recently brought free public wi-fi to 22 North Yorkshire market towns.

“None of this would have been possible without our incredibly talented team who are as committed as I am to maximise the benefits we can bring to organisations of all kinds that operate right here on our doorstep,” Alastair said.

“The fact that we look after our network and customers ourselves makes our work very satisfying because we know we have the capability to make a tangible difference to the prosperity and wellbeing of those living and working in North Yorkshire.”
