8 · SEP ·2017

FluidOne is deepening its leadership and evolving the business for further high growth.

FluidOne, formed in November 2016 by the merger of Fluidata and One Point, is deepening its leadership and evolving the business for further high growth.

Chris Jagusz, currently non-executive director, will take responsibility as CEO for FluidOne on 1st October. Chris was previously CEO of Azzurri, a £100m+, 500+ colleague unified communications service provider. Prior to Azzurri Chris was MD of fibre network operator SSE Telecoms and has worked at senior levels within Six Degrees, Daisy, XLN and BT. Chris graduated in electrical & electronic engineering at Leeds University and gained his MBA at Manchester Business School. He knows FluidOne having been exposed to the business over the last nine months. His general management skills, sector experience and technical expertise together with his strong focus on people and customers is a fantastic blend to help FluidOne in its next chapter of growth.

Piers Daniell, the founder of Fluidata and current CEO of FluidOne will become Chairman of FluidOne with specific focus on new emerging technologies, future product development and strategic relationships. Piers founded Fluidata on 25th November 2004 with angel investors, and together with Chris Rogers grew Fluidata into an industry- leading data connectivity business with a host of company and personal awards over recent years including Best Company to Work For, Queen’s Award for Innovation and Entrepreneur of the Year. FluidOne is now trending at £25m+ annuity revenue, growing from £7m five years ago.

Rigby Group invested in Fluidata in May 2015 and One Point in October 2015. The Group’s investment continued with the creation of FluidOne in October 2016. The business growth opportunity is material, which could see FluidOne double its annuity revenues over the next five years with trends in corporate data, cloud, hosting and the convergence of mobile, voice and unified communications all enabling this. The Board is committed to helping the business and its colleagues fulfil this potential.

John Taylor (Rigby Technology Investments) and Steve Rigby (Rigby Group plc) will remain on the Board supporting Chris Jagusz, Piers Daniell and Chris Rogers in the next phase of growth.
