Communications and business telecoms provider EVAD will merge with mobile telecoms firm Century Mobile. Derby-based EVAD will take over Century Mobile in a move the companies say will “provide new clients with a whole host of additional integrated communication solutions”.
Matt Hill (pictured), chief executive, EVAD, explained, “As a company, we are keen to grow and support local businesses. Derby has always been a place which means a lot to us and we have strong connections with the community and businesses in the region.
“We have worked with Century Mobile and plan.com for a number of years now so when Scott was looking to retire it seemed the ideal opportunity for EVAD to support the business going forward. It is an exciting time for the company, and we look forward to continuing the longstanding relationships already built, as we offer our innovative, integrated approach to telecommunications in Derby.”
Scott Harrhy, former chief executive at Century Mobile, started the company seven years ago and will retire at the end of the month. Harrhy said, “The business has been built with great customer service at its heart. It is a commitment I know that EVAD share which is why I am confident in the future of the business and excited by the new dimension EVAD will bring with its fully integrated approach.”
Plan.com has provided services to both EVAD and Century Mobile for the past five years. Keith Kurran, co-founder, Plan.com, added, “Century and EVAD were among the first partners to join plan.com. Both businesses share values similar to our own, which has enabled us to build an impressive portfolio of customers who reap the benefits of our partnership. I am looking forward to supporting Matt as he brings these customers together under the extremely capable care of the EVAD team, and wish Scott all the very best for a relaxing retirement that he has worked extremely hard for.”
