Custodian Chairman presented with Kent Invicta Award
Custodian chairman, Geoff Miles, has received this year’s prestigious Kent Invicta Award for his contribution to Kent’s economy.
Kent County Council paid tribute to Geoff, who was one of the founding member’s of Custodian Data Centres and servers as our chairman today.
The council handed him two cheques for £2,500 for his chosen charities as he was applauded for his “impeccable diplomatic and negotiation skills” and commitment to the counties business.
KCC leader Paul Carter, at the full council meeting, said: “Geoff’s given enormous hours of service, sitting at endless meetings with difficult district leaders and county leaders, business representatives both at the local Kent level as well as being subjected to all meetings and bureaucracy that surrounds the south east.
“I’m sure on behalf of all the county council and the business communities in Kent, we owe you an enormous thank you for all the time, energy and effort you put in in helping to support economy grow.”
When presenting the award, KCC chairman David Brazier, named his achievements including his contribution to economic boards and organisations “where he provides a strong voice in attracting new investment into Kent, planning for the future and removing barriers to economic growth”.
Accepting the award, Geoff Miles said: “It’s not because of me, it’s about ‘Team Kent’ – all of us working together to deliver a quality of thinking in Kent and Medway that is still growing and is working.
“Kent is a place I believe in. I think we can go from strength to strength.”
