The tech industry featured heavily in the New Year’s Honours for 2018 and techUK’s own president was deeply honoured to be recognised. Jacqueline de Rojas received a CBE in recognition of her service to international trade in the UK tech sector. She joins other key tech evangelists including several techUK members.

Julian David, techUK CEO, said: “Jacqueline’s passion for UK tech has helped propel our sector’s innovation across the globe. This commendation is a clear acknowledgement of her incredible work to date and I’m sure it won’t stop there. We are also thrilled to see so many tech entrepreneurs recognised as part of the New Year’s Honours List. All these exceptionally passionate people have been a driving force in ensuring that tech innovation is at the heart of the UK’s economy. Congratulations to all those on the Honours List this year.”

Jacqueline de Rojas went on to say: “To be included in the New Year Honours List is an incredible endorsement of the progress made by the UK tech industry. We are a digital nation of significance and must now prepare to embrace a future where tech underpins a thriving open economy that provides for all UK citizens - skills, inclusion and diversity must all be at the forefront of this change.”
