Top international award for Derby entrepreneur

The entrepreneur behind Derby-headquartered global IT firm, Bam Boom Cloud, has scooped a prestigious international award.

At the recent Women in Cloud Awards, presented at the Ingram Micro Cloud Summit in Miami Beach, Florida, Vicky Critchley, chief executive of Ban Boom, won the MVP Woman of the Year Award.

The awards celebrate the achievements of individuals and businesses within Ingram Micro Cloud’s ecosystem on their efforts to support women in the community.

This year’s winners were all high-achieving individuals and partners who had displayed high levels of innovation, leadership, and advocacy for Women in Cloud in 2021.

The Woman of the Year Award category recognises one individual female seen as the most valuable player, providing inspiration to her team and organisation.

Vicky was recognised for helping Bam Boom Cloud develop a reputation not only for customer excellence, but also as an inclusive and progressive workplace.

Under her leadership, the percentage of women in Bam Boom’s global team has grown to 33%, with over half of senior management positions held by women.

She said: “I am honoured to be awarded the Women in Cloud MVP Woman of the Year 2022 award.

“Ingram has always been a fantastic supporter of women in the tech industry and this Women in Cloud category showcases some of the most brilliant and dynamic female leaders in the world, so to be recognised as one of these is incredible.

“I am so proud to be part of an amazing global crew of super women at Bam Boom Cloud who demonstrate that there is so much interest and passion from women to be a part of our industry.”

Andrea Mullens, vice-president of human resources at Ingram Micro Cloud, said: “We are proud to recognise the hard work of our partners as they continue to drive industry-leading initiatives in which a diverse workplace can thrive and succeed.

“This distinguished group of channel partners and individuals are paving the way in leadership, innovation, influence, and a commitment to continuously deliver an environment that promotes and celebrates the talents of women.”
