Who is in your team and what are their roles?

There are 12 of us in total and the size of the team reflects our growth over the last couple of years. We have two joint heads of Sales in Rishi Sehgal and Steve Curteis. Our hardworking business development managers are Mark Boulton, Zaran Bandrawala, Tej Thandi and Katriin Hunt. As our security sales specialists, Marlena Kubala and Stephanie Eybers practically live and breathe cybersecurity. Our account manager John Bennett works across all customer accounts, ensuring their needs are being met. They’re all supported by the highly organised and efficient Jyoti Bhundia, Jyoti Mistry and Marlena Rozentalaska.

What are you looking forward to the most for the rest of 2018?

We’re looking forward to building on the success of our PCR award (MSP Specialist of the Year) and bringing in more customers into our managed services portfolio which covers service desk, IaaS, services management and SaaS. And of course we’re going to carry on providing a stellar service to our existing customers, without whom we wouldn’t have received this award. This year, we’re focusing on services in two key areas - our specialist security products and our award-winning hosting and managed TransCloud offering. With the ever evolving cybersecurity landscape, it’s vital that as an MSP, we ensure our customers have a fully rounded security strategy around deep threat management. Virtual server recovery, cloud recovery, and other managed resources can prevent a data disaster becoming a corporate crisis.

What does it mean for the team to win a PCR award?

The PCR Awards are very well respected within the industry so we’re completely chuffed to have our contribution to the UK tech industry recognised and validated in this way. We’re always striving to add extra value by providing managed services and customisations that boost the benefits of technology for our customers’ business.

Who has the best claim to fame in the office?

It would have to be Stephanie. She’s a former American College Golfer who plays off a 3 handicap. She also used to ski race competitively and made it to the Junior Olympic trials in the US.

If you were stuck on a desert island who would survive the longest/ shortest and why?

The longest to survive would be Steve Curteis, hands down. He’s the most competitive person ever and will always find a way to win no matter how extreme the conditions! Rishi would not survive very long as he loves his bed too much. Of course, if he could take his bed with him, he might have a fighting chance! We’re a close knit team and work and play well together which would be a plus on a desert island. It would be like an extreme team away day! Now there’s an idea…
