Select Technology, one of the top 25 managed IT Service Providers in the UK*, has reflected on 25 years of business success with a special anniversary event at its headquarters in Paddock Wood, Kent.
Geoff Miles, Chairman, Kent and Medway Economic Partnership and Simon Ryan, Investment Director at Locate in Kent were among the guests attending to mark the occasion at the company’s Transfesa Road offices on Friday (8/11).
A number of Select Technology’s customers including RIFT Group and Progressive were also present.
Nigel Potter, who founded the family-owned company in Sevenoaks in 1994 and continues to lead the business as managing director, took the opportunity to share the story so far. A new brand identity was launched, together with plans that are in place to drive future growth.
He said, “From the start our ambition was to push the boundaries of what people think of when it comes to IT, with a customer-focused ethos that has proved a winning formula over the past 25 years.
“Our event provided a great opportunity to reflect on our story so far, but just as importantly, to share how we will continue to evolve and grow that success for years to come.
“We will continue our focus on managed services and consultancy and have revealed a new brand identity as a ‘Lifetime IT Partner’. This captures our values, our offer and great people, which will support us in reaching new customers across Kent and the wider south east region.
“We continue to grow fast, sustained by the success we make for our valued customers supported by the fantastic team of people we have built through the years. Every one of them has played their part in all we have achieved as a business to date and the story to come. We’re looking to the future with great excitement.”
Geoff Miles, Chairman of the Kent and Medway Economic Partnership commented, “It’s great to be here to celebrate as Select Technology recognises this milestone anniversary. We have heard their story of innovation, and how the business has adapted to changing technology and the requirements of their customers to evolve and grow the business. They have been hugely successful and I wish them every success for the next 25 years and beyond.”
