In summary


ControlCircle, one of the UK’s leading managed services providers, has won several new market-leading customers and seen continued growth of its revenues in the financial year ending September 2011. ControlCircle’s contracted revenue increased by 25 percent in the period.


Contributing to ControlCircle’s successful year are new customer signings such as Palringo and Ullink as well as ControlCircle’s strong existing customer base, including KPMG, the RSPCA, and Rightmove. Growth has been driven by customers’ need to scale with certainty to meet evolving business demands, resulting in a shift to global managed and hybrid cloud services.


This financial year also saw ControlCircle named as NetApp’s Service Provider Partner of the Year for UK and Ireland, as well as acknowledgment by The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 and Deloitte EMEA 500.


“The NetApp partner programme is focused on providing best-in-class solutions that meet the specific needs of our customers, which are delivered on time and on budget. As a service provider, ControlCircle has fully embraced this ethos. We were delighted to name ControlCircle as our Service Provider Partner of the Year for their outstanding work in bringing innovative IT solutions as a service to market. We look forward to strengthening the relationship and building on this success,” comments Pete Rawden, Partner Sales Director UK & Ireland at NetApp.


To help achieve its goal of becoming the UK’s foremost managed services provider, ControlCircle’ CEO Carmen Carey took steps to strengthen its Senior Management Team with the additions of Tim Theobalds, finance director, Steven Standring, sales director, and Tim Cox, technical services director.


Carmen Carey added “We are delighted with the growth driven by new customers and expansion within our base. The outlook for 2012 is looking positive, with a number of significant prospects beginning to materialise.”
