Agilitas, the leading European Inventory Management partner, has recently announced Tom Kelly as Chairman. Kelly brings over 30 years’ of ICT, MBO and private equity expertise to the Agilitas Board and will be pivotal in ensuring their ambitious growth plans remain on track. In his role as Chairman at Agilitas, Kelly sits on the Board of Directors working closely with CEO Shaun Lynn.
Tom Kelly is widely known and respected from the 10 years he spent turning leading IT firm Logicalis into one of the UK’s leading systems integrator and managed services providers. During his time in the IT market Kelly has forged a number of close relationships with some of the industry’s leading figures and he is held in high regards with them as being personable, open and frank in all forms of conversation.
Commenting on Tom Kelly’s announcement Shaun Lynn said “Agilitas are delighted to have a Chairman with the pedigree and calibre that Tom has. We have very ambitious growth plans and to have someone who has been there and done it to the extent Tom has is great news for both Agilitas and our customers. Tom has a first class reputation and an impeccable track record in the industry and I look forward to continue working closely with him as we look to expand our services proposition.”
Commenting on his announcement Kelly said “I am extremely excited to be part of Agilitas and look forward in continuing to assist them in achieving their ambitious growth plans. Agilitas are the IT industry’s best kept secret and part of my role as Chairman is to maximise the relationships I have built up over the years by introducing Agilitas to those people I know can benefit from their best of breed services. What I’ve learnt over the years is people buy from people regardless of the industry you are in.”
Kelly was also involved in helping to facilitate the successful MBO earlier in the year. Led by Agilitas CEO, Shaun Lynn and members of the management team, Agilitas IT Solutions superseded the previous company ACAL Enterprise Solutions. The change of ownership enables the company to pursue its own independent growth strategy and to control the development of its services portfolio in line with both market and customer demands.
Commenting on the IT market Kelly goes on to say “Cloud services are fast becoming a huge enabler of change within the IT channel as the major vendors, distributors and resellers jostle for market share. Agilitas are ideally positioned to support this change, as the consolidation of services to the Cloud also drives a bigger demand for organisations to centralise their spares inventory, and this is where Agilitas comes in.”
Lynn goes on to say “For many years we have built up a market leading reputation for delivering Inventory Management Services for some of Europe’s leading OEM’s and Service providers. During that time we have expanded our services portfolio in line with customer demand and will continue to do so. However, with the addition of Tom, we have someone who is already driving us forward in getting ahead of the curve.”
