New Appointment Supports Growth for Expanding Technology Firm


Sep 2, 2016

FAST growing North East business technology company Synergi has strengthened its team with the appointment of an experienced IT professional.

Mike Brett joins as support team leader, bringing more than 12 years’ experience and expertise in Microsoft technologies to the role, and after having worked in senior positions for other companies including local engineering firm, British Engines.

He will lead and develop Gateshead-based Synergi’s support team as well as take on day-to-day responsibility for the delivery of IT support services to customers migrating to new cloud-based Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint and Nintex technologies.

Mike Brett will also have operational duties, leading his team and overseeing its development and growth alongside implementing service standards and improved testing processes based on industry best practice.

He said: “I am looking forward to the challenge and working closely with the Synergi team to improve our service support at a time when more and more businesses are investing in cloud-based solutions.”

As a former SharePoint developer Mike’s background and experience is a perfect fit for Synergi, which is driving the regional adoption of the next generation of IT business technology tools, including Office 365 and SharePoint, together with a range of specially designed business apps.

Peter Joynson, managing director of Synergi, said: “It’ll be great to have Mike on-board at this time of growth and success for the firm. He will ensure our customers have the best possible ongoing care experience and help maximise their investment in modern technology, something that he has been delivering internally within his previous role”

Synergi, which has seen staff and turnover increase throughout 2016 on the back of strong demand, saw off strong European competition to win an international Nintex Partner Award at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference.

Clients include regional water supplier Northumbrian Water, North East care home operator Hadrian Healthcare, and Washington’s Walker Filtration, which manufacturers compressed air filtration and drying equipment.
