Recent Industry Movers and shakers

The LED Studio has added two senior sales representatives to its UK team – Channel Development and Partnerships Director Paul Bromley and Global Business Development Manager Lee Stephens.

Lee Stephens

Bromley said: “The LED Studio has a flourishing business with a unique offering that stands out in the LED industry, including a portfolio of proprietary display solutions designed and assembled in the UK. The LED Studio already has strong foundations, which will help as we expand into the broader AV market across EMEA. This is a very exciting time to join The LED Studio and help to cement its reputation and position as an instrumental player in the ever evolving LED space.”





Jon Selway joins Aryaka   

Managed SD-WAN and Unified SASE solutions provider Aryaka has recruited Jon Selway as Vice President of Channel Sales in Europe, Africa and the Middle East (EMEA) to advance the company’s global partner programme in the UK and Ireland. Selway comes to Aryaka after 10 years at Lumen Technologies (and its precursors CenturyLink and Level 3 Communications) where he was most recently Wholesale Sales Director for the UK and Ireland.






New executive team for IMMJ Systems 

IMMJ Systems, the Chelmsford- headquartered provider of electronic document management technology to 20 NHS Trusts, has appointed a new executive team tasked with acquiring 30 additional customers by the end of the 2026 financial year and increasing annual recurring revenue to £6m.

Key changes include the appointment of Jon Pickering as CEO and the promotions of former Head of Software Engineering Andrew Leeks to Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and former Head of Transformation Lisa Harris to Chief Operations Officer (COO). Graham Ridgway remains the company Chairman, Jennie Costello continues in her role as Chief Finance Officer (CFO) and Jamie Hall remains Head of Sales.

Jon Pickering said: “In relative terms, IMMJ remains a young health tech firm, having been established in only 2015. However, backed by investment from Foresight the business has grown quickly.

“It was apparent last year that a new commercial strategy was required – not only to drive the organisation forward to reach its full potential, but to better enable the rapid digitisation of clinical content for use at the point of care. This is a complex eco-system – not least because of red tape surrounding funding, and the marked digital maturity differences from one Trust to the next. However, the succession plan for IMMJ – which saw the four founding directors fully exit the business and a new exec team take shape – means we are ambitious about our plans for the years ahead.”



Neil Carter

New Ignys MD   

Nottingham-based electronics and embedded software consultancy Ignys is building on recent successes with the appointment of new Managing Director Neil Carter.





Ignys Founder and CEO Richard Fletcher said: “Neil brings a very strong technical background to Ignys, along with strategic experience in hardware, software and product development. Neil has previously held positions as CTO in both IoT and wearable tech, with proven results in multiple industries and in a number of geographies. His background and our future are perfectly in sync, he was the natural choice.”

In the last two years, Ignys has doubled its turnover, successfully completed more than 170 projects and won the Design Team of the Year Award at the 2021 and 2022 Elektra Awards.*



Neil Muttock


Muttock joins EvolveODM     

Wigan-based IT and managed network services provider EvolveODM has followed its acquisition of IT firm GB3 in November with the appointment of Neil Muttock as Commercial Director.

Joining from TalkTalk, where he spent six years as a Partner Account Manager, Muttock will be responsible for leading EvolveODM’s sales and marketing teams and driving forward its strategy to double its number of locations from 7,500 to 15,000 and create 40 new jobs by 2025.

EvolveODM, which serves customers in the retail, hospitality and fuel forecourt sectors, including Robinsons Brewery and Hydes Brewery and EG Group-supported brands and franchises like KFC, Starbucks, ESSO, BP and Leon, achieved organic growth of 60% last year, driven by the transition from copper wire to full fibre networks and from traditional MPLS networks to SD-WAN.

Cradlepoint targets public sector with new appointment
Cradlepoint, provider of cloud-delivered 5G and LTE wireless network edge solutions, is aiming to increase public sector sales in the education, healthcare and local government sectors with the appointment of Steven Winter as Public Sector Regional Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland. Previously employed in a variety of roles at Virgin Media O2, BT and EE, Winter’s appointment comes at a time of growing demand for private LTE/5G connectivity, forecast
by IDC to reach $8.3 billion globally by 2026. Paul McHugh, Area Director UK at Cradlepoint, said: “Steven brings huge knowledge of the public sector market to help us bring wireless 5G connectivity to public sector customers who will rely on always-on connectivity as they move to cloud-connected services from vehicles, offices and work from home employees. 5G will be a game-changer for added services such as fleet management, at-home patient monitoring and so much more.”

Consenna, which works with global tech companies such as HP, Acer, Dell, AMD and Lenovo to accelerate growth through their reseller channels, has appointed Michael Cheshire to the newly created role of Digital Product Owner.

Simon Yates, Director of Innovation at Consenna, said: “We’ve invested significant time and money over the past couple of years strengthening our offer to provide innovative product-based solutions to our channel partners to support and accelerate their growth. We’re now at a point where our core product offer is being widely used across a broad range of channel programmes and it’s absolutely right that someone with Michael’s experience, enthusiasm and vision should become custodian of those tools as we now focus on further growth and future iterations of those solutions.”
