New non-exec director for cloud computing specialist

Leeds-based cloud computing and disaster recovery specialist, virtualDCS, has appointed technology expert, Dave Helm, as a non-executive director to spearhead the company’s next phase of growth.

Dave co-founded Leeds-based IT services business, Blue Logic, which supplied leading edge technology, cloud solutions and IT security. Blue Logic employed an 80-strong team and had an annual turnover of more than £8million, when it was sold in 2019.

Following this success, Dave now holds non-executive director roles at a number of technology companies, including Leeds firms, Rabb-IT and Cindercone.

Dave said: “Over the last decade virtualDCS has made a big impact in the IT industry, establishing a market leading range of products including its CloudCover Disaster Recovery suite and its market leading Microsoft 365 backup solution, CloudCover 365. These products are now widely used by clients across the public and private sectors.

“When this is combined with the high level of talent within the business, it means virtualDCS has a very compelling offering, with significant growth potential. I’m really looking forward to the challenges this role offers and helping to guide virtualDCS on its next phase of expansion.”

Richard May, Managing Director at virtualDCS, said: “I’ve known Dave for a long time, and he has a wealth of experience in the IT industry, a thorough understanding of how to grow successful technology companies and a forthright approach to business. This will all prove invaluable to virtualDCS. There is no doubt that bringing Dave on board is a major coup for virtualDCS.”

This summer virtualDCS also appointed Jonathan Bunney as business development manager and Kerri Milburn as a project delivery specialist.

The company now employs a 16-strong team.
