Award-winning entrepreneur, respected industry and media commentator, Adrian Barnard, has been appointed CEO at The Change Organisation.
Adrian, a highly-regarded founder of a number of high-ranking ICT companies, said his aim is to raise the profile of The Change Organisation, a market leading distributor of IT equipment and associated IT services, which he described as a “jewel” in its field.
He said: “I wanted to become a fundamental member of The Change Organisation as it is a great opportunity to work with a first-class firm staffed by first-class people. It’s my ambition to increase the sales margins and reshape the sales structure of this superb company to help raise its profile by introducing it to the wider customer-base it deserves.”
Adrian arrives at his new post at The Change Organisation armed with an impeccable career pedigree. He founded the award-winning ICT company, Modern Communications, which he sold in 2014 to embark on his next enterprising venture – founder and Managing Director of Prime Networks. He helped revalue the leading London-based ICT company before exiting the firm with its future as a blue-chip technology solutions provider guaranteed.
His growing reputation as a dynamic, characterful industry innovator has led Adrian to becoming a valued and sought after media commentator on a host of business topics and breaking news stories. He is a regular contributor to the doyen of news broadcasts, BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, and adds his well-opinioned, knowledgeable voice to TV with appearances on BBC News, Sky News and BBC World. Adrian’s drive, experience, energy and expertise will prove key to The Change Organisation forging an even bigger presence in the IT communications marketplace.
Established in 1993, The Change Organisation has grown to become a leader in the field of IT equipment distribution. Working independent of many manufacturers, the company is able to offer its IT equipment from most of the major hardware and software brands at competitive prices. The Change Organisation also works in partnership with niche manufacturers to provide a specialist distribution service for Audio Visual Solutions and Data Centre Colocation.
Ashley Sterland, Communications Director for The Change Organisation, said Adrian’s appointment is proof of the company’s ambition to further its well-earned reputation as a quality, reliable, wide-ranging IT provider.
He said: “It’s incredibly exciting to have someone of Adrian’s calibre on board. He’s an inspirational person to be around and there’s no question he has the industry credentials to enhance The Change Organisation brand’s latest and greatest chapter in the company’s history.”
