Social media risk management technology company shares in the success of the region as ‘Birmingham Bounces Back’
CrowdControlHQ, with its headquarters in the historic Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham, has reached the finals of the Birmingham Post Business Awards 2014. The company has been shortlisted in the Technology and Digital category from a record number of 100 entries to the awards, which are reputed to be the premier celebration of commerce in the Midlands. The winners will be announced on Wednesday, 26th November at a special gala event being held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Birmingham City Centre.
The theme of this year’s awards – ‘Birmingham Bounces Back’ – celebrates the entrepreneurial talent and drive of Midlands based organisations at a time when employment is up, investment is rising, unemployment is down and the region is exporting more than ever before, attracting cash from abroad.

It has more than doubled in size over the past year and today services over 125 different clients including public sector organisations, finance and legal companies and many major household brands.
