SilverBug the IT outsourcing business, today announced that it has merged with three Admiral Group divisions; Admiral IT, Admiral Network Infrastructure and Admiral Education Solutions.
With effect from 13 August 2012, the merged organisations will all trade
under the name of SilverBug and will operate from SilverBug’s current
premises in Milton Keynes and Leeds, and the Admiral IT office in
Holborn, Central London.
Owen Daley, who will remain as Managing Director of the new
organisation, described the merger as “a very positive change for our
clients and staff”. He continued, “This marks the start of another
exciting growth phase for SilverBug. The Admiral teams bring with them
extensive experience in managed services across a number of additional
sectors, which complements the existing skills and teams we have on
board. The good news for existing and new clients of all the divisions
is that they will benefit from our growth in expertise and knowledge
with this development.”
Admiral Group CEO, and chairman of the new organisation, Graham
McMullen, added: “This merger sets out the vision for SilverBug’s
future. We have brought together a level of expertise and pedigree that
leading businesses look for when choosing a technology partner. Both
organisations have a very similar internal culture that’s based on
providing excellent customer service, and it feels very comfortable to
combine our teams to benefit clients, to form a company that’s greater
than the sum of its parts.”
The Directors of the Admiral companies: Craig Laffer, Sales Director,
David Stanton, Director (SME and Education), Roger Burgess, CTO, and
Adam Sullivan, Director (Key Accounts), all continue as Directors in the
new entity and will join the board of SilverBug alongside Owen Daley.
The Management team is completed by Martyn Alford, who joins from
Admiral as Director of Service Delivery.
The full merger and company structure is expected to be finalised by October 2012.
