Accepting the awards on behalf of Opmantek was lead developer Mark Dueck. “It was such an honour to accept the awards on behalf of our team. We write software at the Gold Coast that is used all over the world, I love seeing the positive impact of our work on so many companies and it’s great to have our efforts acknowledged for a second year.”
