Lynx Group has bundled its training operations, Lynx IT Training and Sphinx CST Education, into a single company. The combined operation turns over £5 million, employs more than 70 staff out of seven training centre and will trade as Lynx IT Training. Lynx IT Training was formed through the acquisition of Clifton Reed Training in 1998. The company supplies PC application training to the corporate and public sector. Sphinx CST delivers technical training centred around Unix hardware and software. Ellie Smyth retains MD slot at Lynx IT Training, while Phil Calladine, formerly General Manager of Sphinx CST Education, joins the board as Director of the Technical Training business unit. Sphinx CST, Lynx's IT wholesale arm, is rebranding its non-IBM distribution business as Sphinx Channel One. Three months ago, the firm funnelled its IBM wholesale business into a specialist unit, Sphinx Blue. Sphinx CST is targeting sales of more than £100 million in the next financial year. The distributor was formed through Lynx's acquisitions of Unix hardware specialist CST, Unix software specialist and comms specialist Globelle. ® Click here for more stories
