Entanet’s CEO nominated in Women of the Year awards
Entanet’s CEO Elsa Chen has been named as one of the finalists in this year’s PCR Women of the Year awards recognising her 13-year commitment to the UK IT channel and significant achievements as head of leading wholesale connectivity provider, Entanet.
