IT solutions consultancy Ramsac has announced the appointment of four new members of staff following a year of great success and growth. Neil Benham has been appointed as a network consultant, Johnni Bech, Peter Tooke and Damian Freitas as support consultants. In additional, Karl Beales has been promoted internally to the post of Relationship Manager. The appointments also follow the recent announcement that the business has been shortlisted for the 2007 CRN IT Services Provider of the Year award.
Neil Benham joins the ramsac team as a network consultant, specialising in Citrix and remote working technologies. Benham has over eight years experience as a senior systems engineer for Gladstone MRM and holds professional qualifications with Microsoft and Citrix. He comments, “I am pleased to have the opportunity to join a company in a period of great development and expansion and look forward to the challenge of working with a varied client base.”
Johnni Bech joins the team as a 3rd line support consultant. Johnni is a certified support technician and was previously employed as a helpdesk technician at the Fitness First head office in Dorset. He explains, “ramsac has a reputation for providing an outstanding standard of service and I am pleased to be joining an already focused and successful support team.”
Peter Tooke also joins the team as a 1st line support consultant. Peter previously worked for the Homebase Group and holds a number of industry-accredited qualifications. Tooke comments, “I am delighted to join a company as progressive as ramsac and I look forward to applying my skills and experience to this role.”
Damian Freitas joins the ramsac remote helpdesk team on a 12 month placement from the University of Surrey. “This is a great opportunity for me to understand how academic IT studies integrate into commercial practice and I am really looking forward to working along side ramsac’s existing team of staff and clients,” adds Freitas.
Managing Director of ramsac, Robert May comments on the recent internal growth, “2007 has been a great year for us, we have seen turnover increase by 46% since 2006 and our client retention rate still stands at a fantastic 97%. These appointments are part of our current strategy to grow in size, client base, geographies and markets.”
This recent period of growth comes on the back of the company’s success earlier this year when they were announced as winners at the 2007 Surrey Business of the Year awards.
