Cheltenham-based PSU Technology Group has bought in additional leadership expertise and technology capabilities with the acquisition of local rival Hub Business Solutions. Headline news from the deal is the appointment of Hub Director Stuart Baikie as PSU's Director of Telecoms Sales.
Baikie co-founded Total (now Bamboo Technology group) which he led as MD before leaving in 2014 having built a £12m business.
"Joining the PSU team was a no-brainer," stated Baikie. "We share the same ideas about it's not what you are using, but how and why you are using it. PSU was the right place for us to continue to create customer centric end to end solutions."
Hub's Lorne Fry and Glyn Evans also take up lead roles as heads of departments for telco and mobile, reporting to Baikie.
PSU MD Michael Lounton commented: ""Over the past year our customer growth and take up of multiple product lines has continued to flourish.
"Hub has built up a reputation for its mobile solutions, rapid site deployment, wireless networking and IoT, making it the perfect fit to deliver a wave of new technology to our customers."
