Dedication recognised in regional listing

By Ben Carey on 21 July, 2023

Danielle Holmes, Head of Business Development at Calne-based IT firm Black Nova Designs, has been named in South West Business Insider’s 42 under 42 list for 2023.

The inclusion comes after Danielle was named as one of the region’s 20 most inspiring women by readers of The Business Exchange earlier this year.

Danielle’s inclusion in both lists is testament to her dedication, playing a pivotal role in the success and growth of Black Nova Designs.

The company has grown year on year since its inception in 2015, and now employs five staff and has a cumulative turnover of £1.3 million. Black Nova has also recently announced a £30,000 investment in new website hosting technology, part of the company’s ongoing plan for growth and commitment to offering exceptional IT solutions to its customers. 

Danielle’s recognition comes just one year after her husband Kyle, founder of Black Nova Designs, was included in the South West Business Insider 42 under 42 class of 2022 list.

Danielle Holmes said, “I am over the moon to be included in this year’s South West Business Insider’s 42 under 42 list.

“We’ve worked so hard over the past eight years to take Black Nova Designs from a startup to a trusted IT and web design provider with big plans for the future. I would also like to extend my gratitude to our clients and partners for their continued support. Without them we wouldn’t have a business and I will never forget that.”
