Recently appointed as the Availability Services Director for Daisy Group, Andy Dunn spent his first two years at Daisy building successful sales and support teams. Andy was recruited by and worked closely with Mike Osborne, the former Managing Director of the Phoenix Business Continuity organisation acquired by Daisy in 2015 - significant factors in Andy’s appointment to run the growing Availability Services part of the business.
Andy has an extensive background in transforming business propositions in infrastructure technology and managed service organisations; and then more recently, cloud service providers over the last ten years. This gives Andy the ideal experience to bring Daisy’s availability and continuity services into the digital arena and redefine the offering for emerging market conditions.
After several successful sales roles in the IBM technology arena for the likes of SCC and Catalyst Solutions, Andy moved in the Managed Services and IaaS sector in early 2000 and hasn’t looked back. Working through the ASP and FM markets to establish a Managed Services offering for IBM customers at Red Squared PLC, his career progressed quickly in line with business acquisitions by Anix Group, ACS ITS and then Xerox. A move to Adapt in 2010 presented a major opportunity for Andy to help transform the then network and colocation / data centre provider into a fully-fledged MSP and ultimately on to become a leading mid-market CSP. Heading up the new business and solution development teams at Adapt was a perfect foundation for the move to Daisy.
Andy is now busy integrating what was the legacy business continuity offerings into the wider Daisy portfolio to create significant differentiation for Daisy; as well as aligning the availability services portfolio to the changing needs of business continuity customers in the digital arena.
