Dan Ware, CEO and co-founder of DJS (UK) Limited, a Bournemouth-based technical innovations and software development company established in 2012, has been named in this year’s CEO Today Awards.

The CEO Today Awards recognise strong and innovative leadership amongst UK businesses, celebrating the success and vision of CEOs across a variety of sectors and industries in the UK.

Before starting DJS (UK) Limited, Dan worked in the creative industries developing award-winning communications campaigns for major food and drink brands including Alpro Soya.

The fintech company began in 2012 following Dan’s own personal experience with payday loans and realising there was a need for a responsible short-term lending service where customers were at the forefront of the business model. It was this concept, where the goal wasn’t to be the biggest or most profitable lender, but to deliver the right outcomes, which got the attention of CEO Today.

CEO Today recognised Dan for his focus on how the business runs, it’s research and development, as well as developing and valuing his staff. It was noted that his recruiting method, based on good fit for the individual and business, alongside skill sets to support his own, was a key factor in the company’s success.

Dan Ware, CEO of DJS (UK) Limited said: “This recognition from CEO Today is an absolute honour. Our philosophies and objectives don’t mirror those of a typical short-term loans business and it’s fantastic to have my story and efforts recognised.

“However, this award comes from the joint efforts of everyone at DJS (UK) Limited. All our employees buy into the culture of providing our customers with an exceptional service and I hope that my passion filters all the way through the company. It is important to me as CEO of DJS (UK) Limited, that everyone who works for us feels appreciated and that their contribution to our success is recognised.”
