Arden Group Targets Growth with Appointment of New Group Sales Director
Arden Group recently acquired Birmingham-based Computerworld Business Solutions (CBS), which bolstered the Group’s comprehensive converged communications offering. Mike Gowen, aims to build on this foundation of growth within his new role as Group Sales Director. With a strong IT and telecoms background spanning 12 years, Mike previously worked with global systems integrator, Dimension Data, in addition to supporting Phoenix IT Group through its acquisition by Daisy Group in 2015.
“I’m delighted to be joining Arden Group, particularly at this exciting time as we gear up for future expansion and develop our complete managed service offering,” says Mike. “We’ve seen the need for a fully integrated communications service emerging in recent years, prompted by rapid innovation within the sector and the need for organisations to safely secure their data. We’ve taken several steps to ensure our customers can access a broad range of reliable business communication products and services all in one place.”
Responsible for cross sale opportunities and broadening the Group’s portfolio of clients, Mike will use his expertise to build on Arden’s vision and support customers to strengthen their businesses in a rapidly changing industry.
Mike added: “Coupled with our recent acquisition of CBS which further strengthened our managed service offering, our innovative converged network approach ensures that our customers will receive a comprehensive and reliable service, consolidated into one supplier to ultimately give them greater security and peace of mind.”
In addition to supplier consolidation, Arden’s comprehensive managed services offering supports organisations to invest in the latest technological advances to reduce their risk to security breaches, something which is particularly relevant in today’s digital world where cybercrime poses a substantial threat to the security of businesses and their data.
