Former Ensono SVP and MD for Europe Barney Taylor (pictured) has joined Focus Group as CEO. In all, Taylor has 20 years experience across sales, operations and finance and will lead Bowmark Capital-backed Focus's day-to-day operations, build the end-to-end strategy and drive organic and acquisitive growth.
MD Chris Goodman said: "Barney will help us accelerate towards being a more collaborative and integrated business. His track record of success, customer-centric approach and operational expertise are obvious strengths.
"Above all, it was immediately clear that Barney's style and approach would see us retain our entrepreneurial spirit and culture.”
Taylor added: "Focus Group's product portfolio has its foundations in telecommunications but is now capable of delivering wider technology solutions and services across multiple market sectors, including cyber security, connectivity and SDN."
Co-founders Chris Goodman and Ralph Gilbert remain central figures within the business as Founder Directors.
