“I was drawn to Bridewell because of its excellent reputation with its current customer base”, said Ben.

“I’m now here to help the firm take the next step in its commercial strategy, with a focus on applying the organisation’s established quality and expertise to those new opportunities.

“Bridewell is ideally placed to expand geographically and I’m looking forward to helping the business to achieve its targets.”

His appointment follows news that Bridewell had been selected to take part in the Microsoft Security Copilot Partner Private Preview to help shape the AI-powered future of cybersecurity.
