In an exciting week managed service provider Timico has appointed Neil Muller as incoming CEO, hot on the heels of the appointment of John Holt as new COO and the acquisition of 25sevenIT to expand its portfolio.

Geoff Neville Chairman said: “I am delighted to welcome Neil to the Board and help us achieve our strategic goals. He brings a wealth of experience and has a tremendous track record.”

Neil Muller said: “I am honoured and excited to lead Timico through its next phase of strategic development. I look forward to working closely with my new colleagues, in order to help Timico’s customers take advantage of managed service and cloud opportunities within this exciting digital era.”

The acquisition of 25sevenIT, an IT managed services provider, is part of Timico’s strategy to become the UK’s leading independent ICT managed and cloud services company. The multi-million-pound investment will bring new opportunities for Timico and the customers of the enlarged business which offers end to end solutions which span national core network connectivity, ICT managed services, digital workplace, security and cloud.

London based, 25sevenIT has a blue-chip customer base with a particular focus on the hospitality sector which will further strengthen Timico’s existing footprint in the sector. Further, it brings proven consultancy and cloud capabilities to complement the managed services it provides to its customers. Neville continues: “Timico helps ambitious businesses to unlock their potential with the use of the right technology—and this acquisition marks an exciting development in the continued evolution of the business. 25sevenIT has an excellent pedigree as an established provider and we are delighted to be adding its knowledge and expertise to our business.”

Mark Hanson, MD, 25sevenIT, says: “I’m really looking forward to working with Timico as we can now embark on delivering the best for our customers in end to end managed services and cloud solutions.”
