The first Northern Echo BUSINESSiQ Awards took place on Friday night (28th April) and businesses from across the region gathered to celebrate the success of them and their peers.

“This award recognises the incredibly hard work of our staff, which has enabled us to grow at the rate we have. We have huge plans for the rest of 2023, but our focus remains on service delivery, exceeding customer expectations and upskilling our amazing team. Thank you, team razorblue!”


Razorblue works with clients across the length and breadth of the UK, and is headquartered here in the North East, which the company describes as a ‘growing business hub’. Over the last 15-plus years, razorblue has worked to become the region’s IT provider of choice as well as a major national employer and thought-leader in the field.


In the last 18 months, razorblue has welcomed 60 new starters and made 32 internal promotions, taking its headcount to over 170. The company has plans to recruit over 25 additional team members in the next 12 months to support plans to continue expanding its nationwide coverage and adding more products and services to the current offering.
