Ensono Appoints Barney Taylor to Managing Director, Europe
October 24, 2018
Ensono has appointed Barney Taylor as Managing Director, Europe, from his previous role as Managing Director at Dimension Data UK&I. Taylor will bring 20 years of IT leadership to Ensono, helping the Managed Service Provider (MSP) to deliver innovative projects and services to its diverse and fast-growing client base. In this role, Taylor is responsible for Ensono’s end-to-end strategy and operation across Europe and will work to ensure that the business continues its strong performance, having doubled its revenue in the last three years.
An accomplished technology business leader, Taylor will drive a client-led approach that will augment Ensono’s reputation for a comprehensive range of hybrid IT services, from mainframe to cloud. As Ensono’s new Managing Director in Europe, Taylor will be responsible for all client initiatives and business performance across the region, leading sales, solutions architecture, consulting and client services. Under his leadership, Ensono will build on its ‘client-first’ management philosophy, its strong partner network, and the company’s status as one of the UK’s best places to work.
Marc Capri, President of Ensono, said: “In Europe, Barney will provide Ensono with the strategy that will put us at the forefront of business transformation for our clients. We’re grateful for all the expertise that he brings.”
Barney Taylor, Ensono’s newly appointed Europe Managing Director said: “Ensono has highly versatile capabilities perfectly in line with market requirements – from mainframe to cloud; from consulting to implementation. Our technical knowledge, along with our partnerships including Microsoft, Amazon Web Services and VMWare, place us in a leading position to help drive our clients’ business agendas – achieving efficiency, new operating models, and cost savings. Clients see Ensono as a trusted advisor, and this desire to work closely with them as a true partner will be critical to our future development.”
“Success also requires us to look internally, focusing on creating a passionate, innovative, and forward-thinking culture. Ensono is the only IT services company to make the top 25 on The Sunday Times’ 100 Best Companies to Work, and it’s important to me to continue to cultivate a positive working environment that puts our people at the heart of our business.”
Barney Taylor replaces Paul Morris, former Managing Director, Europe, who will be retiring. Morris has spent 19 years with Ensono.
