The category – Family Business of the Year – is particularly special for React, which was started 23 years ago by brothers Francis, Richard and Alan Pledger before the brothers were joined by their sister, Penny, when she became office manager. Francis said:

“We are very proud to be a family business and the ethos of React Computer Partnership is in line with those values. The FSB awards are a prestigious celebration of the SME community and we are delighted to be nominated in this category.”

The company, which now employs eight members of staff from its office in Deben Mill Business Centre, offers IT support and services to small and medium-size businesses across East Anglia. Francis said:

“We are now supporting more and more companies move into more of a cloud-based solution which, if used correctly, can make a huge difference.”
