Key senior hire for Greater Manchester IT firm in line with rapid growth

Greater-Manchester-based technology solutions and service provider Central has appointed Eirian Price as solutions architect, to facilitate the tech firm’s continued growth trajectory and increase in market share for key verticals.

Joining Central from his previous role as principal engineer at business solutions firm Wicresoft UK, Eirian brings with him an extensive background in cloud computing, Cisco, and networking. His main responsibilities at Central include designing bespoke technology solutions – whether cloud-based or on premise – for the company’s nationwide client base and managing projects from the proof of concept through to the final implementation phase.

Forming part of Central’s senior management team, Eirian’s hire serves to improve communication between the commercial and engineer teams – ultimately helping businesses to get the greatest return on their technology investments. And with recent experience in both managed service provision and manufacturing, Eirian’s 18-year tenure within the sector makes him well placed to innovate and develop cutting-edge solutions for customers.

Commenting on the team’s expansion, Central operations director John Blackburn commented: “We couldn’t be more pleased to have Eirian on board at this exciting time for the business.

“Having experienced 10% financial growth during 2020 — and with this trajectory looking to continue as we close this financial year — we’re aiming to build on this as we bring in extra talent and resource to help us meet demand in 2022 and beyond.”

Eirian added: “It’s a pleasure to be a part of the Central team – the company’s personable approach to customers and mission to never sit still, all while striving to get the best results for clients was clear from day dot.

“I’m confident that my technical and interpersonal skills – coupled with relevant sector experience – will add real value to the organisation. I’m enjoying applying my outside-the-box thinking when developing new solutions for customers.”

John concluded: “We’re proud to have a high customer retention rate at Central – with many clients having been with us for over 20 years – and with Eirian in post, we’re aiming to further strengthen this and bolster our growth even more.”

Celebrating 30 years of trading this year, Heywood-based Central provides consultancy, IT solutions, and managed services to businesses across a range of sectors.
