Queen's Birthday Honours - Part 2

I just knew I shouldn’t have said that there were no IT people in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Chris Winn (Chairman of Sanderson) pointed out that “One unsung heroine who received a 'gong' was OBE for Susan Carol Hawks, who has worked in IT for the Conservative party for many years(possibly back to the 70's) and reflecting the modern ,connected world, has lived in Spain with husband Nigel who got his OBE (in 1997?) for over 5 years”.

Mike Kennedy, Managing Partner at Restoration Partners, pointed out that Mel Morris had been awarded a CBE ‘joining his good friend Ken Olisa OBE [of Restoration Partners]”. Kennedy was an early investor in King Digital (Think Candy Crush..) as well as launching the dating site Udate and internet security firm Prevxx.

Bluntly, I think that both are on the periphery of what we report upon in HotViews. But happy to keep our readers happy!
