Purple Penguin Business Communications, the Manchester based Telecommunications consultancy has merged with Liberty Bell Voice and Data Ltd, part of the Cheshire based Liberty Bell Group. Purple Penguin’s owner Chris Fargher, joins the board of directors as Sales Director working alongside Liberty Bell’s owner and Managing Director Warren Bone and former Chairman of Liberty Bell, Derek Barnes.
Fargher says of the merger “the Purple Penguin brand has found a new home with someone I feel will be the perfect partners for us. I have worked closely with Warren over the last few weeks to put together a strong management infrastructure that will give us an excellent base for our future growth.”
Bone commented “having recently acquired the assets of Liberty Bell I knew the company was historically strong and will be very successful going forward. Unfortunately the previous regime had left it in a poor state when they departed and I wanted to repair their damage. By being able to attract someone of the calibre of Chris Fargher and Purple Penguin, we have been boosted from day one. Adding that to Derek Barnes’s huge amount of industry knowledge and expertise means we can offer both companies’ customers an improved level of support.”
