EvolveODM appoints Commercial Director in wake of acquisition

Fast-growing end-to-end IT and managed network services provider EvolveODM, headquartered in Wigan, has announced the appointment of Neil Muttock as Commercial Director. The appointment follows EvolveODM’s acquisition of IT firm GB3 from EG Group in November as part of its plans to establish an IT services powerhouse in Lancashire.

Neil’s role will include leading the company’s sales and marketing teams, as well as driving forward its growth strategy to scaleup from 7,500 locations to 15,000 and create 40 new local jobs in IT by 2025. His appointment comes as EvolveODM reports it is on track to close the year at 60% organic growth.

Neil joins from TalkTalk, where he spent six years as a Partner Account Manager, and has a track record that includes significant experience of working with large B2B connectivity providers and growing high-profile customer accounts. Prior to his role at TalkTalk, Neil held numerous leadership roles at Marks & Spencer.

Neil commented: “I’m proud to have joined a dynamic company at the forefront of the latest developments in our industry, as there is so much change currently creating opportunities for businesses which increasingly need greater agility and flexibility in terms of their managed networks.

“I was drawn to EvolveODM due to its vast product portfolio and 24/7, 365 days a year, service offering, but also because of the team’s approach. Everyone at EvolveODM is laser focused on creating tailored solutions for the customer, so I’m excited to help foster that attitude of listening and responding. I’m looking forward to forging new relationships, growing existing ones, and maintaining the fantastic culture that has been built here within the team.”

EvolveODM serves a global customer base in the retail, hospitality, and fuel forecourt sectors, including Robinsons Brewery and Hydes Brewery, and EG Group-supported brands and franchises like KFC, Starbucks, ESSO, BP and Leon.

The company’s growth coincides with a period of transformation for the IT industry, as copper wire networks for broadband and telephone lines are retired in favour of full fibre networks, and businesses move from the traditional MPLS networks that have been in place for more than two decades to the more agile and secure SD-WAN network.

Alan Stephenson-Brown, Director at Evolve Business Group, said: “We are delighted to welcome Neil at such an exciting time for our business and industry. Neil’s collaborative and customer-focused skillset is an ideal fit for EvolveODM as we continue to propel along our scaleup trajectory, supporting our customers to flourish within a changing landscape. We’re proud to be ambitious, as a leader in our space with global reach and considerable USPs, and we know Neil shares our aspirations. IT will always continue to evolve, and so will we!”
