An IT specialist with almost 19 years’ industry experience has been appointed by leading IT automation specialist, PowerON, to support its expansion plans.
Peter Egerton joins PowerON, which is a Microsoft Gold Partner in several disciplines, as a Principal Consultant and senior member of the organisations professional services team. He is also a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) in Enterpise Mobility, which he was awarded due to his ability and willingness to share his specialist knowledge with the global IT community. He previosuly held senior roles at IT services firm Inframon, which was acquired by Ensono.
Peter said: “I wanted to join PowerON because of its focus around Microsoft enterprise mobility and also their Pulse DMS Platform – which enables organisations of all shapes and sizes to manage and secure devices, as well as monitoring system performance, directly from the cloud. The product is based on the very best Microsoft technology and this role is a great opportunity to help PowerON grow this side of the business.
“I already knew Steve Beaumont, who is the Chief Technology Officer at PowerON and fellow MVP from his contributions in the IT community, and was keen to join a team that focuses so much on its customers, who are based all over the world. Working across the private and public sectors, I will be able to make a difference to organisations such as the NHS, as well as working with the education sector, health, manufacturing, engineering, legal and financial industries. It’s a hands-on role that will allow me to bring the best of Microsoft enterprise solutions to so many organisations.”
Phil Mercer, Managing Director, from PowerON, said: “PowerON has been transitioning its business model for the last two years when we identified the shift in the market towards a modern management approach, and the need to support a more continual service change operating model. This approach has been welcomed by customers across multiple industries and Peter’s appointment has further strengthened our service offering. He is a superb addition to our team, with exceptional technical talent. We share the same cultural spirit of supporting the IT industry, which Peter does as an MVP, and we complement this with our own Microsoft Elite partner status – something achieved by only eight UK based firms and just over 70 companies globally.”
Peter is a Windows Management User Group (WMUG) Community Leader and regularily speaks at events and writes blogs about Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), Microsoft Intune, Enterprise Mobility + Security and Microsoft Azure. He is also a published author and qualified trainer. Due to his MVP status he regularly travels to America and attends events such as the MVP summit in Seattle where Microsoft preview new technologies and discuss future plans amongst the world’s most respected industry professionals.
PowerON, which is headquartered in York, has seen its turnover surge from £128,000 to almost £2.15 million since its inception six years ago, following notable contract wins in both the public and private sectors. The company is on track to achieve a £3.5 million turnover by the end of the year. It has grown staff numbers from just four people to 28 within that same time frame. The company also has an office in Lincolnshire and provides powerful, high quality IT management and cloud automation solutions to organisations of all sizes across the UK.
