Former Computacenter exec Mo Siddiqui has landed at managed services provider Redcentric as chief operating officer, transferring his experience of working with large corporate clients to his new employer.

Siddiqui left the services-based reseller in July after almost 20 years on board, latterly as international director. He was lauded by Computacenter chief exec Mike Norris as an “unsung hero” of the firm.

Redcentric, born out of the managed services operations at the former Redstone and Maxim, confirmed the appointment.

“Under his leadership, international contracts became a significant contributor to Computacenter’s Group Contract Base, including many of the company’s largest clients,” Redcentric stated.

At the same time, Redcentic issued a pre-close trading update for fiscal ’17 ended 31 March, revealing “upper single digit organic growth in recurring revenues being augmented with acquisitions to deliver low double digit headline recurring revenue growth.

“This has been offset by the planned continued reduction in low margin product sales,” the company said. Half year numbers to 30 September will be audited and published mid-November.

Redcentric acquired services business Calyx last year, and then this calendar year slurped bit barn City Lifeline and offloaded 137 km of fibre to CityFibre.
