He has previously held business development roles for a legal publisher and in the financial services with GE’s Auto and Home Lending services.
Dan said: “I’m excited about the opportunity to work for Onyx and be a part of a successful journey of growth for the business. The company is very well known in the North East and Scotland and it will be my responsibility to expand this profile into the Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire areas.
“Onyx already has a number of blue-chip clients and the standard of technology it has in place is very impressive. I was taken aback by the facilities available at the Rotherham site. It is a fantastic asset for businesses in the region.”
Onyx Group’s Rotherham facility offers businesses access to a 320 rack state-of-the-art Data Centre and a 250-seat workplace recovery centre. From this site Onyx can deliver Cloud hosting and backup, colocation, IT support and e-security.
