Circle IT’s top seven highlights of 2017

Happy New Year! 2017 has come to an end, and we thought we’d take the opportunity to look back on a successful 12 months and pick out some of our highlights along the way. Here’s seven of our top picks from the past 12 months.

 

1.     Visits from Jonathan Monk (University of Dundee) and Claire Vyvyan (Dell EMC)

Jonathan Monk at Circle ITWe began the year by welcoming Dr Jonathan Monk, Director of IT, University of Dundee, to the Circle IT offices in Cardiff. Jonathan gave the team an overview of the award-winning University of Dundee as well as an interesting insight into his PhD, which he researched at the University. Having spent several months at the University installing a new Dell EMC network, we were delighted to have Jonathan join us and learn more about the University and how our project is making a real difference to the staff and students.

In the same month, we also welcomed Claire Vyvyan, Senior Vice President and General Manager for the Dell EMC commercial business in the UK and Ireland. Claire presented to the team all about the future of Dell EMC and it’s technology, she also answered some interesting questions from members of the Circle IT team!

 

We really valued both visits and hope to host more sessions like these during 2018

 

2.     We announced our annual figures, showing a 375 per cent growth during the past five years

In May, we released our financial stats and were delighted to end the financial year on a high with our annual turnover reaching £10.8million. Circle IT CEO, Roger Harry, said “We’ve started 2017 in a strong position and will continue to be bold with our ambitious growth plans
