Commsworld Founder Exits on a High

Commsworld has today announced that David McKenzie has decided to exit the company on the back of record financial results. Having co-founded Commsworld with Richard Nicol in 1994, McKenzie has decided the time is right for his departure and to allow the existing management team to take the company forward.

McKenzie has overseen the development of Commsworld over the last thirteen years with the company today a trusted partner and solutions provider in the ICT industry. Commsworld achieved turnover growth in excess of 20% in 2006, a trend which has continued during the first half of 2007.

The Commsworld board will be headed up by new CEO Richard Nicol who co founded the business thirteen years ago.

Nicol said, ‘’I am delighted for Dave; we have worked tirelessly over the years and have created a company that is a leader in its field. I am proud and privileged to have worked with a man I consider to be a close friend. Commsworld will continue to benefit from Dave’s extensive knowledge of the industry by engaging him in an advisory capacity going forward.

The world of converged communications is redefining how organisations will work in the near future and we have an ambition and vision to help our customers on this journey.”

McKenzie added, ‘’When we established Commsworld in 1994 our vision was to form the best independent communications company in Scotland; I believe we have succeeded in this ambition. We have created a company, from scratch, that is a true leader in its field and I have utmost confidence in the existing management taking it to even greater heights.

While targeting some personal business goals, I will remain closely involved with Commsworld, where I will hopefully be able to contribute to what will undoubtedly be an exciting and rewarding future for the company.”

‘’I wish all the many colleagues and friends I have within Commsworld all the success in the world. I could not have left the business in better hands than the talented management team, led by my good friend Ricky’’

The existing Directors and external investors have facilitated this important step by acquiring David McKenzie’s shares, showing their high level of confidence in the management team and the future prospects for the business.
