A LOCAL businessman won three more awards to add to his collection.

Kinloss-based companies 3rd Pixel and Shaun Moat’s Moray Digital won the SME UK Enterprise Awards in the Northern Scotland section for Best Web Design Agency and Best Social Media Management respectively, as well as the award Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Silver Award for 3rd Pixel.

He said: “I don’t know who nominated me for the company awards, but the commitment award is for my continued commitment to the armed forces community.

“The accolades for both companies at the SME Awards prove that our customer service and quality are of the highest standard.

“It’s also greater recognition for my teammates, my partner and fellow director, Kay Perry, and our incredible and talented employee, Chase Nelson.”

He added, “We work hard to keep our customers happy and continue to grow through word of mouth. These awards will cement our reputation.

Moray Digital received Silver Armed Forces Covenant Employer recognition in 2020.

Mr. Moat is an armed forces veteran who served at Kinloss and Brize Norton, before seeing active duty in Kuwait and Iraq.

He said: “Our Silver ERS awards mean a lot to me.

“I am committed to supporting our Armed Forces community by championing the incredible talent ex-Forces can bring to a business and how businesses should support our Reservists.

“The biggest organizations to receive the award in 2022 included Bristow Group, Fife College, NHS Highland, NHS Fife and Falkirk FC.”

Both 3rd Pixel and Moray Digital have a wide range of customers for their services.

Mr Moat said: “We continue to see both grow with new clients looking for social media or web design.

“We have seen clients from all over the UK come to us asking for help with their business. We offer lower costs than many city agencies as well as a free landline service, which means we convert approximately 80% of quotes to customers. »

Mr. Moat recently lost a chance to be Moray Councilor for Forres Ward, but is determined to continue contributing to his community.

He said: “I continue as Chairman of Forres Skate Park Initiative – we are moving forward and hope to have a skate park in Forres before the next Olympics!

“I have been co-opted to the Findhorn and Kinloss Community Council and want to continue to listen and be a voice as I did when I served on the Forres Community Council.”
