Belfast firm Pinnacle – a leading provider of Sage software and IT solutions – has celebrated 25 years in business by taking more than 100 of its staff to Portugal for an an all-expenses paid trip.
The company, which has branches throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland, flew its workers to a five-star resort in Vilamoura, to mark the occasion.
The five-star celebrations included welcome lunch overlooking the Vilamoura Marina, followed by spa treatments and water sports.
The celebrations were hosted at an event at Purobeach club, which included a fire show and live acts, all with the backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea.
“Pinnacle’s 25th anniversary in business is a very important milestone for us and it had to be marked by thanking the staff who have made the business the success it is today and for the success we will build tomorrow,” James Spencer, managing director of Pinnacle said.
“We wanted every individual in the organisation to feel thanked and special – from our teams fronting calls in reception, right through to sales, marketing, support, consultants as well as the management team.
“The company has ambitious growth plans within our Sage and IT services divisions, and our staff are key to this success.”
And Fran McKee, marketing director of Pinnacle, who organised the event, said:
“We have created some very memorable events for our team around key milestones in the business, but venturing to the sun and hosting a white party on the beach was pretty special and unique.
“Purobeach and the Tivoli Hotel were chosen for their sophisticated ambiance, location, views and accessibility. The event was hosted in June and there is still a buzz in the business post event”.
Pinnacle is a true home-grown success story starting as an IT business in east Belfast, it has grown from humble beginnings to become a £15m turnover organisation, with more than 130 staff working from 11 UK and Ireland offices, servicing over 1,000 customer sites.
And 25 years on, Pinnacle is one of the largest and most successful suppliers of Sage in the UK and Ireland.
