VAR Intrinsic Technology has appointed AppSense CEO Darron Antill to lead the firm.

He replaces Adam Jarvis, who returns to his previous role as sales and commercial director as part of an executive reshuffle.

The firm says the appointment “prepares the way for the next stage of its ambitious growth strategy”.

Antill comments: “Intrinsic Technology has built an enviable reputation in the UK having aided organisations across healthcare, public sector and the retail sectors, change how they do business, through the use of ICT. Our recent work with clients such as Next, the Co-operative and DB Schenker is testament to this.

“This is a fast changing industry driven by our customers’ increasing business demands and need to support an ever increasing mobile and demanding workforce. BYOD, cloud-based services, and the need for secure and mobile access to applications and data is important to every business and employee.

“The shift from on premise to off premise IT solutions is already happening at a considerable rate to our customers, as we continue to see this acceleration into a hybrid world, and it is our role to help transition and support them through this. We will continue to invest in and extend our managed and cloud based services offering, as well and growing our geographic footprint in the UK market.

“With our new management team in place we have the skills, the ambition and the knowledge we need to become a UK cloud and managed services leader, and extend our services from our 24/7 service operations centre.”

Jarvis last year described his becoming Intrinsic CEO as "the pinnacle of my career so far."

Antill (pictured) – who will be supported by Jarvis, CFO Rachael Nevins and CTO, Steve Browell – says the fromer CEO “helped steer Intrinsic Technology to increased revenues through a difficult trading climate. The business is stronger for having him as a key part of our management team as we take Intrinsic to the next level.”

During Antill’s tenure as CEO at AppSense he increased revenues by 270 percent to more than $100m. Prior to that he was CEO of security specialist Vistorm, which was acquired by EDS.
