Derby-based CEO Vicky Critchley wins Global Award for Outstanding Leader of the Year.

Vicky Critchley, CEO of Derby-based global IT firm Bam Boom Cloud has been named the winner of the Outstanding Leader of the Year Award at the 2022 Digital Revolution Awards.

The Digital Revolution Awards were created in 2020, to recognize and celebrate the very best individuals and global businesses in cloud technology. The awards showcase some of the incredible work that is helping to power the future, as well as making the industry a better and fairer community.

Winners were announced on February 25, 2022, at the awards ceremony hosted in London by entrepreneur Maxine Nwaneri, that was also screened online, and at in-person events in the US and Australia.

The Outstanding Leader of the Year category recognises the most inspirational leaders across the cloud space. Vicky Critchley was recognized for helping Bam Boom Cloud develop a reputation not only for customer excellence, but also as an inclusive and progressive workplace. Vicky takes a proactive and hands on approach to helping women thrive in tech and under her leadership, the percentage of women in the global team has grown to 32%, with over half of senior management positions held by women.

In February 2021, Vicky and partners completed the management buyout of Bam Boom Cloud and supported a relatively young workforce across three continents in the process. She’s an advocate of people being their authentic selves at work, placing an emphasis on a culture that values empathy, trust, clarity and kindness.

“This award means so much to me, and is dedicated to my team, who I am privileged to lead and who mean everything to me. I must also recognise Microsoft, whose cloud technology is the backbone of our business, and the Women in Dynamics community which I am honoured to chair. Together we can make a real difference in shaping a more inclusive and diverse technology sector.” Vicky Critchley, Bam Boom Cloud CEO.

"It’s a real pleasure to be able to shine a spotlight on some of the incredible work that is being done within the many cloud ecosystems around the world,” said Kashif Naqshbandi, Chief Marketing Officer of awards organizers Tenth Revolution Group. “While it’s become the highlight of my year to sit down with a panel of judges and narrow it down from a bunch of nominees into a list of winners, the competition was so close this year that it was an incredibly tense process that provoked a lot of fierce debate.”

“However, the winners are people and organizations that we are proud to highlight for their transformative, innovative work that has empowered the world through cloud technology, and I’m delighted to be able to celebrate their success through the Digital Revolution Awards.”
