Outstanding company growth unites Colin Meakin and old friends at virtualDCS

The Cloud Computing experts are celebrating the end of another exceptional financial year and are looking towards the future, as they welcome Colin Meakin as a non-executive director.

Colin’s new position has been driven by the company’s rapid growth delivering solutions from its own cloud platform, including IaaS, SaaS, and Veeam Cloud Backup & Replication services.

Colin Meakin joins virtualDCS

The virtualDCS company directors have all worked with Colin in one of his previous positions over 10 years ago, and the formidable team is thrilled to be working together again.

Colin has a prestigious background in the IT industry with a proven record of driving business success, having held boardroom positions at several key organisations, that went on to be industry success stories.

One of which includes the ICM Computer Group plc, where he helped grow the business from start-up to £80m turnover. Colin will be injecting both this passion and experience into his new role at virtualDCS, helping to propel the business onto the next chapter of success.

Richard May, Managing Director at virtualDCS said: “virtualDCS has grown dramatically each financial year to date and appointing Colin as a non-executive director is the first step on the next stage of our growth plan.

From working with him personally, we know that Colin has a wealth of industry knowledge that will be nothing but beneficial to virtualDCS.”

Collin commented on his new appointment: “It’s great for us to be working together again, especially in such an innovative, forward-thinking company like virtualDCS.

I’m looking forward to helping the business continue to grow and build upon the last 10 years of success.”

September of this year marks 10 years since virtualDCS was founded and the team is now looking forward to the next 10. Growing every day, virtualDCS is constantly expanding its excellent delivery team and is now focussed on expanding its thriving sales team.

Joe shared his thoughts around his new role at virtualDCS: “I’ve always been interested in technology and the expertise behind the cloud, so I’m excited to join the team and get stuck in.

It was also great to hear that every apprentice they’ve hired previously is still with the company, having moved up the ranks into more advanced roles. I’m really looking forward to getting started in my new position and absorbing as much information as I can from the team.”

Ross Devine, Head of Support at virtualDCS said: “virtualDCS has been welcoming support apprentices into the company for over 6 years now and our first ever apprentice is still with us. For us, it makes much more sense to have an employee ‘learn on the job’ as they have a direct impact on the business from day one… it’s also much more stimulating than working from a textbook!”

Thomas Keighley, Regional Sales Manager North/North East for QA commented on Joe’s new position:

 “We are immensely proud to help young talent in their journey into new careers working closely with fantastic companies like virtualDCS. They open the opportunities up for apprentices to gain qualifications and experience in the working environment.

virtualDCS have seen the benefit of growing your own talent via Tech apprenticeships and we are proud to help mould the future through this opportunity and training for the individuals and the company”
