In 2016, we sponsored the Microgaming Award for Technology. Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever was in attendance at the ceremony to present Triumph Actuation Systems with their award.
On what proved to be a special night for MGS House residents, Derivco Isle of Man made it third time lucky when they won the Isle of Man Government Award for Freedom to Flourish!
We sponsor a category of the Isle of Man Newspapers’ Awards for Excellence, which is a showcase for success in all walks of island life. In 2012, we actually sponsored two such awards: Lifetime Achievement, presented to Dot Tilbury for her outstanding contribution to grassroots cycling; and Isle of Man Ambassador, collected by cyclist Peter Kennaugh, the Olympic gold medallist and Team Sky rider. In 2013, we sponsored the award for Effective Marketing & PR, which went to Golf Tours IOM. A year later, we sponsored the Public Sector Achievement award, won by the Health and Social Care Teaching Unit. And in 2015, we proudly passed on the baton for Corporate Social Responsibility, having won the award ourselves in 2012 and 2014.
In recognition of local achievement, we have sponsored the Isle of Man Sports Awards for numerous years. The annual event celebrates the success of home-grown sports personalities such as Mark Cavendish, Anna Christian and Zoe Gillings. In 2013, we sponsored the Administrator of the Year award, which went to Pip Cross for her extraordinary efforts in netball.
