Croft were honoured to win a Business of the Year trophy at the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards 2022, earlier this month.
Entered in the Medium to Large category, Croft rubbed shoulders with an impressive list of worthy finalists and emerged victorious at the prestigious Gala Dinner, held on 9th June at Warner Bros Studio, Leavesden.
About the award
Since 2012, the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards have been recognising and celebrating the expertise, accomplishments and amazing contributions that businesses have made within the Hertfordshire community.
Organised by the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce and now in their eleventh year, the awards are a fantastic opportunity for businesses and entrepreneurs across the County to demonstrate their performance and successes within the local community.
Business of The Year Medium To Large Award Winners 2022
Despite tough competition from many of our fellow local businesses in Hertfordshire, we were delighted to win the Business of the Year Medium to Large Award and be recognised for all we have achieved over the last few years.
Briege Leahy, CEO of Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “I salute Croft for successfully building their business both organically and inorganically – something really difficult to do, and look forward to seeing the business going from strength to strength over the coming years and continuing its exciting growth journey.”
We are so pleased to be recognised for the amazing growth that we have achieved over the past year. Our recent acquisitions of Design Communications, Active Voice & Data and Cloud9 to name a few, have expanded our client base and improved our scope of services to include Managed IT Services, Managed Cyber Security Services, Business Phones and Hosted Telephony.
All of this would not have been possible without our incredible team of staff – a young, ambitious and solution-driven set of employees whose amazing abilities are at the very heart of our business. And with a full third of our team dedicated to customer care, we’ve ensured that through our expansion and growth, we’ve been able to sustain the same excellent customer service we’ve become known for.
2022 and Beyond!
Adapting our service offering to reflect changes in the market over the past few years, Croft has an aggressive strategy for growth going forward to meet increasing demand and stay ahead of the ever-changing technology sector.
Being recognised at the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards has only motivated all of the team at Croft for the challenges that lie ahead.
Thanks to the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce and all the other amazing businesses that joined us on the night to celebrate!

Passionate about keeping communities connected
We are particularly proud of our hard work during the pandemic, working to keep businesses, schools, universities and hospitals across the country connected during these unprecedented times.
We’re passionate about keeping communities connected and give back wherever we can, launching our Croft in the Community Initiative earlier this year. As part of the initiative, we teamed up with Heart Radio to combat digital poverty and enable better access to an online education for children across Hertfordshire whilst they were learning from home during the pandemic.
