Vin was named Entrepreneur of the Year by a distinguished judging panel
from the UK financial investment community. To win the accolade, Vin had
to demonstrate that her vision, flair, drive and business acumen is
driving AIM-quoted Advanced Computer Software Group forward at a pace
impossible without access to AIM’s investor funding base. The award also
acknowledged the supportive management team behind Vin’s success.
Vin Murria, CEO of Advanced Computer Software Group, says, “It is an
honour to be named AIM’s Entrepreneur of the Year. Advanced has grown
from zero to close to £110 million revenue in just a few years with a
market cap of £230 million. None of this would have been possible
without the dedication and drive of the Advanced team.”
David Snell PwC’s head of AIM and chair of the voting panel says, “This
was a particularly fiercely fought award and the competition was
extremely high. Vin was a very worthy winner having shown the
entrepreneurial spirit that encapsulates what AIM is about.”
