The managing director of a telecom specialists in Clevedon has been named entrepreneur of the year.

Rob Vivian, from Pure Comms in Tickenham Road, was given the title at The South West 42 under 42 Awards.

The ceremony was held in Bristol and recognises the region’s most innovative young entrepreneurs who are driving business across the area.

Rob was crowned entrepreneur of the year, with judges citing Pure Comms’ significant growth and unique approach to doing business.

Rob set up Pure Comms in 2009 following jobs in other telecom businesses. He identified a gap in the market for a telecoms provider which built bespoke packages around the client and their needs.

He said: “In an industry which was constantly slashing prices, and therefore quality, I wanted to set up a business which was different – one offering real value, rather than a one-size fits all package.

“It was a risk but I’m glad to say it’s still paying off. Pure Comms has achieved massive year on year growth – bringing on board major new clients, employing more staff and opening additional offices. And I’m delighted this has been recognised at the 42 under 42 awards.”
