The first quarter of 2021 has flown by, as we’ve seen our rebrand, investments and new appointments taking over the news! So, let’s look back at the last three months in the media, to see whereabouts we hit.

Our new direction and hat-trick of collaborations

Data Centre & Network News noted our trio of powerful new industry collaborations that’ve been 12 months in the making. From further enhancing our existing relationship with firewall partner Fortinet, to cementing our relationship with Veeam and signing a new deal with TechData, it’s clear we’ve been hard at work behind-the-scenes. We also added new solutions – Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and UC+C analytics – to our growing toolkit, investing £350k in the cloud technologies powering the UK’s most ambitious businesses.

Two new hires and head of transformation move

February saw our new ‘appointment and promotion’ announcement circle the news, as we progress towards our £7m turnover target for the year. Our long-standing operations lead, Carol McGrotty, made the transition into her new role as head of transformation, following 20 years in the telecoms industry. She didn’t wait around to add to her team either, with two new starters welcomed onboard quickly, to enhance Vapour’s technical capacity even further! Read the full story over at UK Tech News.
