Breakwater starts the year with fresh leadership
In 2017, technology looks set to continue being a very influential part of our lives – providing a multitude of challenges and growth opportunities for business. Breakwater is lucky to work within a field that benefits from substantial investment and research, with IT regularly offering up new platforms to deliver the next level of innovation, and this year looks set to raise the technology bar even higher.
As an IT support and services provider, Breakwater works to ensure it is continually on the leading-edge, recommending new and efficient ways to meet the technology needs of clients.
With a future that looks set to be shaped by rapid IT progression and the subsequent demands upon company systems; Breakwater is excited to be welcoming in the year with a new Managing Director, a front-runner with a drive to positively employ the latest advancements brought onto the market. John Gostling has been appointed Managing Director of Breakwater, having been part of the company for 4 years and Operations Director for the past 2; during which time he has worked hard to enhance both the team and service they deliver.
Peter Davies, Chairman of Breakwater commented that: “John has been with the company for 4 years now and fully understands what is required to efficiently manage the IT needs of multiple companies across a wide range of business sectors. We are looking to significantly grow the business over the next 3 years and I am confident that with John at the helm we are going to achieve our aim of rapid and sustainable growth”
John is a great advocate of innovation, and with 2016 having been a year in which the technologies in our corporate world have shifted yet again, including the release of new products, rise of mobile workers, increased data and collaboration demands and of course, the big one – the ongoing threat and evolution of cybercrime; Breakwater are motivated to have such a forward-thinking Managing Director.
John Gostling, Breakwater’s new Managing Director commented that: “I am extremely excited to be meeting the year ahead in a position that enables me to actively guide the direction of Breakwater and the talented team we have here. It’s crucial that we continue to keep abreast of advancements in technology and the ever-changing needs of organisations operating across a variety of different fields. I’m especially conscious of the requirement to tackle the rapid rise and maturing nature of cyber threats and we will keep investing in technology and knowledge to deliver cutting-edge backup, recovery and business continuity solutions.”
The Breakwater Service Desk team is also expanding to further advance the technology and IT provision available to clients and to facilitate this Jack Fisher has been promoted to the position of Service Delivery Manager, heading up the team with a fresh focus and experience. Jack has been with the company for several years, working as a 3rd Line Engineer, involved in many key projects including multiple Office 365 installations.
As IT plays an increasingly more important role for organisations across the board, 2017 looks to be an exciting time to deliver more business value than ever before and with an experienced leadership team Breakwater are well equipped to help businesses harness this.
