From entry level to director and over 1243% growth in a decade

A key member of staff at a leading managed service provider is celebrating ten years with the business, and a journey that has seen the company grow from 10 to over 140 staff, creating job opportunities across the region.

Mark Wilkinson joined razorblue in September 2012 in a technical projects role, being promoted to management and to a director, before his current position as Group Commercial Director. During this time the business has grown exponentially, completed two acquisitions, and shows no sign of slowing down!

Mark said: “Looking back at what razorblue has achieved in just 10 years, I am so proud to have contributed to that with the help of our CEO, Dan Kitchen’s leadership. We have an excellent team and exciting client base, meaning I’ve been able to work with phenomenal people.

“During my time here, razorblue has supported me through my PRINCE qualification (project management) as well as many technical certifications, and I’ve also been able to help my own team develop and progress in their roles, which is something I am proud of. I’ve gone from managing a team of 1 to multiple teams of around 40 people. I’m really excited for our future and to see where we will be in the next ten years!”

Following recent investment and a move of its Stockton office to accommodate continued growth, razorblue has big plans for the future – including creating a raft of new jobs in the area.

Dan Kitchen, CEO said: “Mark’s contribution to the business over the last 10 years has been instrumental to getting us to where we are today. Our entire ethos is built on being a strategic partner, and doing the right, fair thing for our clients – Mark has embraced that from day one and I’m looking forward to enjoying our continued success together.”

With a client base of over 500 companies across the UK and boasting seven offices, razorblue specialises in managed IT, security services, super-fast connectivity, cloud and hosting and business software solutions across a broad range of industries.
