Connectus merges with KTSL to create £10m Group

Connectus Business Solutions and KTSL have merged to create the Connectus Group which is expected to deliver revenues of more than £10m in its first year.

This is Connectus’ third transaction in as many years and adds to its technical capability and delivery resources.

Roy Shelton (pictured) will serve as CEO of the new Group. He said: “This merger allows both businesses to execute revenue growth via a planned and controlled expansion programme.

“It brings a greater scale allowing us to bid for larger opportunities, increase our recurring managed services revenue and will allow us to leverage our sixty-plus members of staff in a more collaborative manner.”

The Group’s HQ will remain in Doncaster and Connectus Group will look to create employment opportunities across its five offices in Salford, Corsham, Egham, Daresbury and Dublin.

Rob Marks, the CEO of KTSL, will become the non-executive Chair of Connectus Group. The Group will be strengthened by the arrival of Keri Brocks, Company Secretary and Finance Manager; Paul Ruocco, Group CFO; Aaron Perrott, Group CTO; Tim McCue, Head of Professional Services; Mark Robinson Founding Director; Mark Wiseman, Group Commercial Officer and Andrew North, Group Sales Director.

Perrott said: “This merger will extend our portfolio to include cyber security and a secure hosting capability for our solutions. 

“This will broaden our capability to offer highly relevant solutions to help our combined clients mitigate cost and risk, improving their underlying service and employee experience.”
