Nimble Approach secures investment from tech consultancy heavyweight

Sheffield-based Nimble Approach has received a significant investment from tech consultancy heavyweight Mike Bates.

Bates has extensive experience in helping to create and build two multi-million pound consultancies; BJSS, and Infinity Works.

Mike will be joining the product and technology consultancy’s board as a non executive director.

Mike said: “After 5 hectic years at Infinity Works I was looking to invest in a great IT services firm with a strong core management team.

“In Nimble, I found not only a business with a strong management team but one that has a great reputation, a first class blue chip client base, it’s financially strong and already has a team with great agile skills, strong engineering focus and a real drive to help clients succeed. For me it’s perfect.”

He added: “Within 5 years, I want Nimble to be a class leading UK IT services provider. Recognised throughout the UK.

“In 2020, the need for digital transformation is higher than ever. The Covid crisis has amplified and accelerated the commercial pressures driving that transformation. First class IT professionals and teams are in short supply. Class leading business and delivery focused service providers and people are what is needed in the core of every commercial challenge. So the scene is set.

“We have a first class team already. We’ll expand that team and we’ll provide the right support structures for the Nimble staff to grow as Nimble grows. We will be customer and people focused, we’ll support personal growth and respect staff and customers alike.

“When we deliver a successful project we’ll always aim to aim to meet the commercial challenge, but we’ll also aim to leave the client’s organisation more capable, more agile, better organised and better equipped to meet future demands.”

CEO Chris Roberts said: “Mike has become well integrated in the team, and we’ve already been working together on our strategy, commercials and people. His involvement feels natural to us all. We are sure we have an exciting future and we’ve now got the right core team to continuously deliver excellence to our clients.”
