Founder of the TECAs, Professor Martin Gill hosted the awards and was helped by Alan Dedicoat (known by many as the ‘The Voice of the Balls’), sponsors and judges.

Martin Gill noted that the past 18-months had provided both challenges and opportunities and this year had seen the most entries since the inception of the awards 3 years ago – clearly demonstrating the excellent work that is taking place in the flight against all areas of economic crime.
