Cloud Gateway, a provider of flexible networking and security services, has hired Steve Ellerington as its Healthcare and Local Government Lead, as the business expands its presence in the North of England.

Based out of Cloud Gateway’s Huddersfield office, Ellerington will be responsible for supporting the sales strategy across the local government and healthcare teams, ensuring a strong presence in those sectors and identifying new market opportunities.

Ellerington brings more than 20 years of experience to his new role, with a successful record of leading sales teams, driving revenue growth and managing strategic relationships. With extensive knowledge of the public sector and the operational challenges it faces to digitally transform, he will engage with current and future customers to understand their cloud strategies. Helping them to achieve their digital ambitions through Cloud Gateway’s secure networking and connectivity services.

Ellerington comments: “Cloud Gateway is doing things differently. Its approach removes the typical bottlenecks that slow down digital innovation, such as long service-level agreements and expensive lock-in contracts. So that customers can make the most of flexible networking and security solutions that connect the people, places and devices they need. It’s this ability to deliver great outcomes for the public sector and citizen-centric services that drew me to my role here.”

Justin Day, CEO and Co-founder of Cloud Gateway said: “Steve joins us at the right time and I’m pleased to welcome him to the team. His blend of commercial experience, drive and public sector knowledge will play an important role in supporting our place in the market. We recently welcomed our 100th customer onboard and this year is going to be one of significant growth for us. We know that transformation can be hard, especially for public sector organisations that are trying to deliver more digital services – which is why we are committed to working with our customers like ​​HM Courts & Tribunal Service, NHS Digital and the Yorkshire & Humber Care Record, to build the digital foundations they need, to power everything they want to achieve.”
