Tech agency founder named business person of the year in North Wales

Tech entrepreneur Paul Levy, who’s helped a hotel make buzz worldwide and saved endangered red squirrels through innovation, has won a prestigious business award.

Levy, the managing director of North Wales-based digital creative agency Livetech, has been named business person of the year at the Conwy Business Awards at Venue Cymru.

The top gong recognises a momentous 12 months for the company. Just last year, it moved into new offices in Llandudno, previously the North Wales headquarters of the National Trust.

Paul says the new premises, which are 5,500 square feet in size and sport two car parks, represents a major investment in the future of Livetech and its operations.

This news follows Livetech being accredited as an official Google Partner, meaning it’s now part of an elite selection of businesses around the world that are certified by Google to manage AdWords accounts.

It’s the only company in Conwy, Gwynedd, Anglesey or Denbighshire to achieve the status and is able to use Google branding on its own marketing materials, giving it massive credibility.

Paul’s impressive resume includes being a stress and performance Engineer on the landing gear of several variants of the European Airbus, the A321, A330 and the A340 aircraft, and he was also previously an IT teacher.

Paul set up Livetech in 2000, and the company has kept growing ever since – working on web design and tech solutions for industries such as online retail, construction and engineering.

He said: “I am absolutely thrilled and delighted to be accorded this massive honour by the Conwy Business Awards. It is a fantastic reward for the hard work of all the team at Livetech who have played a blinder.

“Livetech’s mission is to make their clients successful. Our aim is to provide the digital oil that keeps the wheels of business and commerce turning.

“We have laid the foundations for further growth by investing in the company’s new office complex which is teeming with technology, including two super-fast channels.”
