Huddersfield-based provider of flexible networking and security services, Cloud Gateway, has announced the appointment of Steve Ellerington as its Healthcare and Local Government Lead.
The hire comes as the business aims to expand its presence in the North of England.
Ellerington will be responsible for supporting the sales strategy across the local government and healthcare teams, ensuring a strong presence in those sectors and identifying new market opportunities.
Based out of Cloud Gateway’s Huddersfield office, he brings over 20 years of experience in leading sales teams, driving revenue growth, and managing strategic relationships.
With his extensive knowledge of the public sector and its challenges in digitally transforming, Ellerington aims to engage with current and future customers, helping them achieve their digital ambitions through Cloud Gateway’s secure networking and connectivity services.
‘Doing things differently’
“Cloud Gateway is doing things differently. Its approach removes the typical bottlenecks that slow down digital innovation, such as long service-level agreements and expensive lock-in contracts,” said Ellerington.
“It’s this ability to deliver great outcomes for the public sector and citizen-centric services that drew me to my role here.”
Justin Day, CEO and Co-founder of Cloud Gateway, welcomed Ellerington’s appointment, stating that his blend of commercial experience, drive, and public sector knowledge will play an important role in supporting their place in the market.
