Ultratec recruits industry specialist Peter Hodgson to run IT channel services division

Stevenage, UK – Ultratec, the leading provider of data security services and solutions, today announces the appointment of Peter Hodgson as Managing Director of UltraSupport Services, its third party maintenance (TPM) services business focused exclusively on servicing the IT channel market.

Pete brings a wealth of experience having spent over 20 years working in the channel services industry. Prior to joining UltraSupport, Pete held senior positions at companies including Phoenix IT services, Synstar and Daisy Communications. Most recently, Pete was Director of Sales at NCE Computer Group, a computer hardware company offering an extensive range of services in Data Centre and Enterprise IT environments.

UltraSupport Services was established by Ultratec to benefit from the substantial parts inventory of the Group as well as leveraging Ultratec’s extensive engineering expertise in the field of data storage devices. With the addition of regional stocking locations to meet stringent Service Level Agreements, a dedicated TPM helpdesk, and the expansion of the nationwide engineering team, UltraSupport’s TPM business is seeing strong growth in a sector characterised by mergers and acquisitions.

With systems and processes now tried and tested for the smooth delivery of TPM contracts, and revenues already ahead of schedule, the business is poised for significant growth.

 

Ian Turnbull, CEO of Ultratec, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Pete to lead UltraSupport Services. Pete has a strong track record of supplying the channel and his deep sector knowledge is going to be invaluable to us.

“We took our time before launch in getting the operational elements right and we’ve already proven that we can deliver. We’ve got plenty of capacity for more growth and the timing is perfect for someone of Pete’s calibre to take the business to the next level on current activity rates, which are exceeding the business plan.”

 

Peter Hodgson, of UltraSupport Services, commented:

I am very excited by the opportunity to join Ultratec and lead UltraSupport Services to drive growth and ensure the smooth delivery of TPM contracts.”
