Communications specialist set for growth with multi-million pound investment
Wakefield-based business communications specialist, NGC Networks, is targeting £10m turnover in the next year, backed by significant investment from CloudClevr.
NGC Networks was established 20 years ago by joint managing directors Dean Harrop and Nikki Guest and has grown to be a leading player in its sector across the North of England.
The company employs 45 people and has more than 800 customers, providing them with telephony, unified communications, connectivity, mobile, contact centre solutions and managed services.
CloudClevr is a new venture with majority investment from specialist investment business Rigby Technology Investments (RTI), part of Rigby Group PLC, a £3.3bn privately owned technology group and one of Europe’s leading technology backers.
NGC Networks will use the support to drive its growth across Yorkshire and the North, increasing its customer portfolio, capability and creating jobs in the coming 12 months.
CloudClevr will support NGC with enhanced cloud-based propositions and investment in sales and marketing, enabling NGC to concentrate on customer management, sales and technical leadership.
Dean Harrop, joint managing director of NGC said: “We are pleased to secure the investment and support of Rigby Group and to benefit from the ambition and technology investment going into CloudClevr.
“It’s great for our colleagues who will benefit from being part of a growing, national business allowing them to develop and succeed in an ever-changing marketplace.”
Nikki Guest, joint managing director of NGC, said: “We are committed to remaining our customers’ trusted advisor, helping them navigate the growing complexity of converged IT and communications.
“I’m very excited about the market opportunity we have ahead and to continue building NGC as a powerhouse of the northern region as part of CloudClevr.”
Steve Harris, CEO of CloudClevr, added: “I am pleased to be working alongside Nikki and Dean. In NGC, they’ve created a fantastic business with strong potential. They have a brilliant team in place and I’m really looking forward to starting this new journey together.”
