Assure APM Expands, Appoints New Chair
The ambitious Edinburgh IT company has appointed veteran angel investor John Waddell as it’s chair as the company continues to expand across the UK.
Scottish IT company Assure APM is expanding. The company has relocated to a larger office in Rutland Square in Edinburgh to accommodate their growing business.
Assure has also appointed John Waddell to the Assure APM board as chairman. Mr Waddell was chief executive of Edinburgh-based Archangels for 10 years, before stepping down in 2015.
The company has more than doubled the size of its team in the past year and is planning further expansion. The Edinburgh-based firm recently reported it’s most successful year to date, with an increase in turnover and a 40% rise in repeat revenue over the previous twelve months.
Assure APM has also opened a new office in London, as a base for its growing activities across the UK. The company also plans to offer their unique set of cyber security and IT performance solutions to the European market as part of their growth strategy. The company is also planning to open a new office in Frankfurt, depending upon the results of the ongoing Brexit negotiations.
Founded in Edinburgh in 2015, Assure APM’s services recently announced a partnership with award winning Scottish cyber security company ZoneFox, which, along with their Illumio micro-segmentation security offering, enables the company to offer seamless cyber security protection in datacentres, the cloud and on most end-user devices.
Doug More, founder and CEO of Assure APM said:
“We are delighted that John has agreed to join us on this journey. John has a long and successful career in guiding and advising companies. We are very much looking forward to him bringing his experience and leadership skills to bear here as we continue to expand.
“We are also very pleased to be moving to our larger premises in Rutland Square as we were quickly outgrowing our previous office. Additionally, we’ve opened a new office in London. This will give us a base for our work south of the border as we continue to grow and work on new business in the area. We have had a great start to the year, winning business and taking on staff. In the coming months we are looking to further increase our client base and create more jobs.”
