The 2015 Theo Van-Dort award was presented by the Business Application Software Developers’ Association (BASDA) to Qtac’s very own Alex Rowson at the members’ annual summit event on 2nd June, in acknowledgement of his notable work in the software industry, working closely with BASDA, HMRC, The Pensions Regulator and others over the past 15 years.
The Theo Van Dort award commemorates the work of a memorable co-founder member of BASDA, who regrettably lost his battle with cancer in 2005.
This annual award was created to recognise individual(s) who have made significant contributions, ‘above and beyond’ to the benefit of the UK business software industry.
Alex who has been with QTAC since 2000 started his software career in 1965 and has worked at director level for Multi-national companies. He is involved with the Payroll Specialist Group of the Chartered Institute of IT (BCS), and is currently chairman of the BASDA HR & Payroll SIG.
Alex achievements include being a leader in negotiations with HMRC on RTI and its implementation and is currently at the forefront of Automatic Enrolment in Payroll.
