Chris Lim

An IT specialist with almost 14 years’ industry experience has been appointed by PowerON, to bolster its integrated software provider credentials.

Chris Lim joins from specialist software vendor and Microsoft system centre specialist Cireson, where he was the EMEA sales and partner manager. Chris will be responsible for driving product development and building partner alliances.

Phil Mercer, solutions and services director, from PowerON says: “Chris brings a wealth of experience across the product management lifecycle, with his key focus being on customer experience. His skills will ensure we grow and continue to deliver excellence to our customers.

“Chris’s job will be to develop the software side of our business, expanding our services here in the UK, but also into the European and US markets as first target areas. Responsible for product development at PowerON, Chris will assist this expansion whilst we remain wholeheartedly committed to our core product and service offerings.”

Chris says: “I’m fortunate to have experience in solution integration, managed services, the license solution partner world, and most recently in the integrated software vendor landscape across EMEA. With such a dynamic change in both the Microsoft cloud solutions and global partner ecosystem, it’s going to be an exciting challenge to develop PowerON’s subscription software business from its core expertise and knowledge.”

PowerON, which is headquartered in York, has seen its turnover double to almost £2 million since its inception just  three years ago, following notable contract wins in both the public and private sectors. It has grown staff numbers from just four people to 27 within that same time frame. The firm also has offices in Lincolnshire and Surrey and provides powerful, high quality IT management and cloud automation solutions to organisations of all sizes across the UK.
