Manchester-based cloud and colocation specialist UKFast has appointed George Frewer as director of enterprise.
Frewer has been with UKFast for more than ten years and progressed from roles including head of enterprise and enterprise solutions architect.
The appointment marks UKFast’s move to divide its core business on the advice of Richard Branson as its exponential growth continues. UKFast Enterprise will be headed up by Frewer and operate as a separate division to the UKFast brand.
UKFast Enterprise has been developed to meet the needs of the world’s most competitive companies, including Kellogg’s and Virgin, who demand the highest levels of service to support solutions that are often very complex and entirely bespoke.
Frewer said: “Having been part of the UKFast family from the early days when we were a seven-man team, I’m honoured to now be heading up the new Enterprise division and embarking on a new adventure with the firm.
“I’m honoured to be leading a talented team of solutions architects, business development people and marketers on UKFast Enterprise. We have the best brains in the industry on the team and we’re delivering some of the most complex hosting solutions to some of the world’s biggest names. It’s a very exciting time to be part of this business.”
UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones said: “George is one of our true UKFast legends. The contribution George has made to the success of the company in the last decade cannot be overestimated. He has been instrumental in developing best-in-class enterprise solutions and more recently in heading up the enterprise sales team, leading by shining example.
“As the enterprise division grew, I sought the advice of Richard Branson in handling such rapid growth; who advised me to split the business and appoint the right leader.
