With the IT security issues businesses are facing all over the world, the demand for expert IT services in the UK have risen. It’s no surprise a company like Rockford IT has had a very busy year. Rockford IT, a managed IT services company based in Telford, Shropshire has needed to invest in new staff members to strengthen its team and to help with the ongoing growth of the company.


In 2013/14 Rockford IT grew by 24% which was followed this year by a growth of 45%. To top this all off the local Shropshire Company have numerous awards, award nominations and accreditations under their belt, making 2015 a great year so far.


In the space of one year Rockford IT has added ten new members of staff to sales and marketing, service desk and infrastructure teams helping to maintain the high levels of customer service they provide. This month they have welcomed Lara and Ramman to the sales and marketing team, with a third, Simon, to join at the end of October.


Lara, originally from Birmingham, has 20 years’ experience working in communication with the majority at BT in various roles but also spells at Worldcom and Your Communications. Lara has a particular interest in account management which leads her nicely into her new role as a part time Account Manager at Rockford IT where she will be looking after Rockford’s customer base.


Proud family man Ramman, from Telford, comes from a background of telemarketing working for Data Capture Solutions and Slipstream in the past. Ramman has spent the last 7 years working as Meeter and Greeter at Asda, but felt it was time to return to telemarketing and embrace the challenges working in the IT sector.  It also allows him time to share childcare with his wife.


Simon, who is due to start at Rockford IT at the end of October as the new Sales Executive, will be the 5th new member of staff to join the growing sales and marketing department in the last year.


Nick Deane, Sales and Marketing Manager of Rockford IT, commented: “I am delighted to have Lara, Ramman and Simon join us in the sales and marketing team at this exciting time for Rockford.   We have ambitious targets for 2016 to build on our amazing growth so filling these posts was key to ensuring we continue to grow.”


With another vacancy open in the provisioning department and the recent apprentices that Rockford have taken on board, it’s safe to say they are a company on a roll.
