London-Based Managed Services Provider The Internet Group Completes Successful Transition Into Mid-Market
The Internet Group, a London-based IT management company and service desk, has successfully completed its transition into the mid-market.
Following a number of appointments to the board and a 13% growth in workforce during the first quarter of this year which includes the recruitment of a specialist storage and enterprise architecture team, The Internet Group has seen its client base grow significantly within the medium sized business sector. It now provides IT outsourcing solutions to a growing number of businesses in the 100-350 employee category. The firm has also confirmed a positive second quarter forecast, and continued growth in the mid-market. Adam Maurice, managing director of The Internet Group said, “We are seeing a number of mid-market businesses re-evaluating their IT spend, and with our new portfolio of services, we can deliver a range of solutions to reduce their IT costs and increase their business efficiency.” Paul Edgeley, former managing director at IT services giant BT Lynx has also joined the Board as an executive director of The Internet Group following his tenure as non-executive for the past 2 years. With this positive move, Mr Edgeley has also purchased shares in the business. Mr Edgeley will assist in delivering the aggressive growth target that has been established and also lead future acquisitions. He said, "This is a tremendously exciting time for The Internet Group as it has now transitioned into the mid-market. The company is well poised to take advantage of the considerable investments made to ensure it can perform and deliver in this highly competitive sector." With its IT outsourcing solutions for medium sized businesses booming, The Internet Group has been recognised for its open and direct communication with clients. It has retained its 3-star SDI (Service Desk Institute) accreditation for a second successive term and was praised for its unfailing commitment to continual service improvement in the service desk industry. Along with new Finance and Executive board members, The Internet Group are delighted to announce the appointment of Stuart Grist as Sales Manager to deliver the growth strategy going forward. With over 12 years of experience in the technology industry, Stuart brings with him a wide range of skills that will add immense impact to the company’s proposition. Mr Maurice added, “As a forward thinking IT managed service provider, we have made many positive changes internally to focus on mid-market businesses and continue providing cost-effective IT solutions. As part of our long term strategy, the next 5 years will see The Internet Group grow significantly, expanding our IT service portfolio, and delivering tangible value to our increasing client base.” To find out more, visit http://www.theinternetgroup.com
