Brian Townsend, who has been involved in the IT industry for nearly 40 years, has taken over as MD of Foster-Melliar from Conn Wood who has stepped down to "pursue personal endeavours".

"Foster-Melliar is a highly capable company currently in a very good position in the IT industry," says Townsend. "It will continue to focus on quality and high standards of service delivery within the IT industry.
"I am certain that Foster-Melliar will continue to dominate the sector from an ITIL point of view, increasingly within a SOA environment," he says. "The quality and standard of Foster-Melliar staff is unquestionable, the extraordinary results achieved through our training and consulting services speak for themselves. We will be looking to provide additional services to compliment our current service offering.
"From a Simeka BSG perspective, Foster-Melliar is well-positioned to play a significant role in cluster initiatives within the group, with a strong focus on quality delivery and optimisation of cross-pollination," he adds.
