Circle IT sees revenue grow to over £10 million

Technology services provider Circle IT has seen its annual turnover reach £10.8 million, representing a staggering growth of 375 per cent over the past five years.

The company has grown thanks to contracts with the likes of the National Museum for Wales, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Cardiff & Vale College, Rhondda Housing Association, Cowbridge Comprehensive School and Welsh Joint Education Committee (WJEC).

It’s also just won contracts with the University of Dundee, Harrison Clark Rickerby’s and UKTV, which is the home of the Dave and Gold television channels.

As well as winning new business, the company has received a number of awards and nominations, including Employee Engagement Award for Project of the Year and Circle IT’s CEO and founder, Roger Harry, being shortlisted as Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2016 Cardiff Business Awards.

Last year, the firm won the prestigious Dell EMC Network Partner of The Year for the second-year running too. This comes after it signed a deal the tech giant to transform the IT infrastructure across the entire estate of the University of Dundee.

Catering for more than 17,000 students and 3,000 staff, the university approached Circle IT to overhaul its technical infrastructure. The firm replaced the university’s entire wired and wireless networks as well as its firewall security infrastructure.

Roger Harry, CEO of Circle IT, said: “We’ve had a fantastic year. Not only have we grown the business considerably using a pool of local talent – we’ve continued to cement our position as one of the leading technology businesses with some key wins in great sectors including education, law and media.

“I am incredibly proud of how successful the business has become and it is testament to the collective talent and hard work of our colleagues.

“We continue to invest heavily in our staff and this last year has seen a large number of internal promotions as well as continuing to work to attract the highest calibre of talent to the business.

“We’ve recently launched our graduate programme and now employ seven graduates as well as a number of apprentices – all of which are from the local area.”

Talking about plans for the future, Harry continued: “We’ve started 2017 in a strong position and will continue to be bold with our ambitious growth plans.

“We’re looking to emulate the success of this past year with further growth in our key sectors.” Circle IT was established in 2001 and is a leading provider of all aspects of IT infrastructure, managed services and consultancy to the UK mid-market.”
