Converge Technology Specialists (Converge TS) has today announced that serial tech entrepreneur Mark Fowle will be joining the business as non-executive Chairman. Following significant private equity investment in Converge TS at the beginning of the year, the company has expanded its team and service offering and is on-track to become the leading cloud provider to the legal sector through a combination of strong organic growth coupled with strategic acquisitions.
Mark brings substantial experience founding and successfully scaling technology businesses to the board, having founded a number of ISP/MSPs in the late 1990’s and co-founded cloud provider Attenda in 1997. When sold to Ensono for >£100m, Attenda was delivering revenues of over £40m, an EBITDA of £10m and had been listed in the Sunday Times ‘Top 100 Companies to work for’ 5 years running. Mark retains a non-executive role at Ensono as well as chairing Datum, the data centre business he co-founded.
Nigel Wright, CEO of Converge TS said “We are delighted to welcome Mark as our Chairman. Not only does he have experience of leading successful technology businesses, he’s passionate about creating a fantastic culture and workplace. This will be invaluable in attracting talent and building a dynamic environment in which our team can thrive and provide the best service to our customers.”
Mark added “It’s an exciting time to join Converge TS as the company enters the next phase of growth. With their ambitious leadership team, clear strategic focus and strong financial backing, I’m confident we can build upon the strong business that Nigel and the team have already built and use their deep understanding of the sector to provide an increasingly compelling proposition to the UK’s top law firms.”
