Six Degrees Group adds to management team


Acquisitive managed data services provider creates new group business operations director role for industry veteran Mike Ing

Six Degrees Group has appointed Mike Ing in the newly created role of group business operations director.

He is now responsible for acquisition integration, business process management and internal IT and systems, as well as managing the firm’s managed Cloud hosting unit.

Ing began his career in the telecoms and internet sectors in 1988 with Cable & Wireless, where he was engineering manager for over 10 years. For the past year, he has acted as an independent consultant, with Six Degrees Group one of his clients.

Ing said: “In less than a year, the company has become one of the real success stories in the UK managed data services sector and I look forward to helping the team reach new heights and achieve their stated goal of being a top 5 hosting provider.

“I’ve spent most of my career aligning people, processes and technology to launch great products with superb support, and the team here has the same philosophy and ambitions.”

Six Degrees Group CEO Alastair Mills added: “As a well-established and close-knit senior management team, we make new appointments rarely and with caution but Mike is an exciting addition as one of the most respected operational leaders in the industry.

“We continue to grow at a very rapid pace and Mike’s role will be crucial to ensuring operational fitness and smooth integration across the Group and fast growth in our managed cloud hosting division.”
