Dimension Data has named Barney Taylor as its new managing director, UK & Ireland.

Taylor (pictured) steps into the role after Calvin Goom’s resignation in March of this year.

Taylor has been with Dimension Data since 2012, during which time he has worked as part of the Global Services leadership team based out of London.

“Barney’s knowledge and understanding of services, alongside his proven leadership capabilities, will bring continued success to our business,” says Andrew Coulsen, CEO of Dimension Data Europe. “Dimension Data is committed to accelerating the ambitions of our clients and enabling their digital transformation. Barney will be a key part of delivering this vision and growing the UK&I business for Dimension Data.”

Adds Taylor: “It is very important that this business now takes our clients into new operating models and brings our full services portfolio and the global strength of Dimension Data into this market. We must strengthen and grow our existing relationships and demonstrate services-led business value to our clients and partners in a way that we have not done before in the UK and Ireland.”

Taylor, who will take up his new role in June, will be responsible for growing Dimension Data’s Data Centre, IT-as-a-Service and Enterprise Services businesses.

A NTT Group company, Dimension Data currently posts a turnover of $7.5bn and offices in 58 countries.
