Simon, whose experience covers more than 25 years in the industry, has previously worked at Minister Micro. He re-joins now following an increase in the number of clients handled by the firm.

The company’s managing director, Susan Marlow, said: “When we knew that Simon was open to the prospect of heading up our operations team he was immediately the frontrunner for the job.

"He was the dream candidate because he knows how Minster Micro works and what is expected. He has also gained valuable insight into the global IT marketplace which will only help us and our clients in the months and years ahead.

"Simon has re-joined us at an exciting time. We are bringing new clients in on a regular basis and are also constantly investing in the next generation of IT talent with a superb batch of young people coming through. Simon will play a key leadership and coaching role in all of that.”
