Director joins multi-million technology firm to bolster ambitious growth plans

Leading technology solutions and services provider Solutionize Global has added another senior figure to its business – with a strong commitment to further growing its workforce throughout 2020.

Despite the difficult climate, the Yorkshire and London-based enterprise has continued to successfully recruit during lockdown – bringing in seven high-level additions during the crisis – and is earmarking a further three appointments by the end of August.

The most recent addition is John Hayes-Warren – a sales director possessing over 25 years’ experience in telecommunications, unified communications, software solutions and hybrid cloud infrastructure.

The former sales leader for both international IT managed service provider Claranet and global giant Vodafone joins Solutionize Global’s senior leadership team with a focus on B2B and channel growth.

Commenting on his appointment, John said: “Solutionize Global has the ethos, skill, desire and pedigree to understand what equally forward-thinking firms require to remain relevant. It is an incredibly agile organisation with a strategic and steely focus on doing things better – I have been so impressed with the culture and people-first focus of the organisation.

“As well as already being trusted by big tech players – such as Dell Technologies and Vodafone – I want us to partner with even more giants in the marketplace and become the envy of others in how we deliver outstanding services.”

With more recruits in the pipeline – as well as the unveiling of a third office – CEO and founder of the 11-year-old firm, David Bentley, believes 2020 will be a landmark year for the £42 million business.

“We’re working hard to bring in some of the UK’s brightest and most experienced tech talents – even during an incredibly difficult climate,” he said.

“We want to keep building a diverse workforce that’s focused on developing true company culture, prioritising employee engagement, maximising organisational growth, and helping enterprises to do the same – via the power of tech.”

Speaking about his new sales director, David added: “John will play a vital role in our long-term development. He’s energetic, adaptable and has a passion for people as well as an expansive knowledge of the industry that will help us to realise our goal of becoming a £150m turnover firm in three years’ time.”

Having joined the Wakefield-headquartered company, John believes the north has a huge part to play in technological innovation and business evolution.

“Solutionize Global is a national firm with a true northern heartbeat. It understands how many golden opportunities there are for companies to adopt technology – and thrive – here too.

“It’s an exciting time for the region and further afield. We are part of a tech scene that’s innovative and growing – all of which is positively impacting our UK economy.

John added: “Solutionize Global has a huge role to play in how we remain at the forefront of everyone’s minds and continue to help organisations to invest in savvy digital solutions so that they can stay ahead of the curve.”
