Anna Sutton is CEO and co-founder of The Data Shed.
Anna’s extensive marketing background brings a commercial and strategic perspective to new projects and clients, alongside the technical expertise of co-founder, Ed. This means that every project and product developed by the technical team has value for the client at its core.
With responsibility for all non-technical aspects of the business, Anna’s focus ensures that the original culture and core values of The Data Shed – Always Seek Value, Share the Knowledge, and Treat People Right – are always kept front and centre of the business strategy.
Outside of The Shed, Anna is a member of the steering group for the Leeds Digital Festival, the largest tech event in the UK, and a vocal advocate for women working in the Tech sector. Active in support networks such as LeanIn, Women in Leeds Digital (WiLD) and Leeds Beckett University’s Women in Leadership programme, Anna regularly speaks at tech and business events, sharing her experience and knowledge to encourage and support other women to step out of their comfort zone and take up new challenges.
Anna’s passion and drive make her an outstanding entrepreneur and director, winning three Entrepreneur of the Year awards including the Business Desk Yorkshire Leadership Awards in 2019.
