Sir Stelios welcomes easyNetworks

Portsmouth telecoms group joins easy family of brands.

A Portsmouth-based IT & telecommunications company is celebrating the start of a new chapter by joining one of the most iconic modern business brands, managed by easyJet founder, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.

With the name, ‘Easy Networks’, it was only a matter of time before the IT and telecommunications company, started by entrepreneur Richard Gwilliam in 1995, caught the attention of the man best known for founding the low-cost airline and building a group of companies including ‘easyHotel’, ‘easyCar’ and ‘easyHub’.

“Last year, I was invited to talks with Sir Stelios which I thought would be about intellectual property and use of the brand name,” recalls Richard.

“However, after some discussion, we realised we both had the same business values and Sir Stelios invited us to join his ‘easy’ family of brands. I went into a meeting prepared for some tough negotiations and walked out with a new business partner!”

The swift transformation of the business with the addition of the distinctive ‘easy’ branding has been immediately noticed, commented on and has received an overwhelmingly positive response from clients across the UK. With support from Sir Stelios, easyNetworks will be opening its first London office in May as part of its renewed growth strategy.

Sir Stelios said: “We are very pleased to welcome easyNetworks into our easy family of brands. This is our first venture in an exciting business sector that offers excellent future growth opportunities.”

“Richard and his team bring something new and exciting to the brand and have already impressed colleagues and associates with their enthusiasm and synergistic plans for the future.”

Richard Gwilliam added: ‘For an experienced and successful entrepreneur like Sir Stelios to recognise what we have achieved over the last 24 years, our potential for the future and to make a personal investment in the business is a huge compliment.’

‘All the staff were delighted to meet him when he came to see us and we look forward to bringing innovative IT services for the same great value, whilst making a positive and valuable contribution to the brand.’

Relocate to new HQ at Lasham Airfield

easyNetworks had supported their telecoms environment for many years at their Daedalus airfield HQ. Their telecoms needs were changing and they needed more agility to ensure they never missed important calls from their clients, and they decided to relocate their HQ nearer to London. Their relocation presented the perfect opportunity to upgrade their telephone system to a cloud based version before moving. Their new cloud pbx provides the Atlas team with great flexibility and enables agile working, ensuring they always receive that important call.
