Centerprise International has appointed Sam Kazerounian as its new managing director, while Garry Stevens assumes a new role as Group CEO.
Kazerounian, the founder and former CEO of Compusys, will be responsible for looking after Centerprise’s core business, providing complete IT solutions into the Defence, Education, Government and Healthcare sectors, as well as the company’s distribution and video analytics arms. He has years of experience supplying IT solutions to the UK public sector, initially through Compusys and then later Stone Computers, following the merger of the two companies in 2006.
He joins Centerprise Group shortly after its investments in up-and-coming IT companies, such as OnCommerce, the name behind ‘OnBuy’, the new online marketplace set to rival Amazon and eBay from this month.
Following the announcement of his appointment, Kazerounian said “It is great to be back in the IT market again, working with the excellent team at Centerprise. I’m very much looking forward to working with them to continue building on their great work.”
Meanwhile, Garry Stevens, the man behind Centerprise’s recent investment spree, is assuming a revised role as Group CEO of the Centerprise International Group. This newly created role has been designed to ensure the Group maximise the return on their new investments, joint ventures and partial acquisition. Stevens commented: “As well as helping to develop the core businesses, I will be working closely with our Chairman, Rafi Razzak and the rest of the Board of Directors to ensure we continue to grow and prosper well past our 30th year.”
