Certeco Announces Expansion as Demand for Business Technology Change Increases
LONDON, July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Increasing demand for delivery of services in the business technology change space means Certeco is expanding its senior team.
The UK based company, has seen over 18% growth since the start of the year and secured 7 new clients across the travel, communications and financial services sectors.
Certeco emphasise that the increased demand is partly due to the number of change programmes being driven directly from the business teams rather than from within IT. Gary Davies, Managing Director explained; 'So much of the change we are seeing is driven by increased regulation, merger and demergers and the need to improve and innovate customer facing systems. The business teams are driving this and we provide the expertise to help to deliver technology projects working hand in hand with their own IT support functions.'
Senior roles appointed
New roles for client directors and the consultancy practice team in the programme and project management (PPM), business analysis and test management will ensure Certeco continue to achieve high levels of client satisfaction.
Graham Smith, Director of Sales and Consultancy says; 'The breadth of activity and involvement we have with clients requires a measured approach and deep understanding of their business challenges. Successful delivery comes with the right teams and fortunately we continue to attract and retain good people in the company. Recently Bob Thomson and Martin Dempsey joined Certeco as Client Directors; Martin takes over on the retirement of George Blackie in Scotland.'
