Comtec Enterprises today announced the appointment of Antony Eason as CTO, adding to the considerable experience of the existing leadership team and reinforcing the business’ commitment to supporting its customers’ digital transformation goals. The move coincides with Comtec’s pivot to a C-suite management structure, with former Technical Director Phil Reed assuming the new role of CIO and founder and MD Nick Claxson occupying the CEO hotseat.


“Digital transformation is accelerating as organisations emerge from COVID lockdown and we are ideally positioned to support their adoption of hybrid cloud adoption,” said Nick Claxson, CEO. “Antony is a world-renowned consulting authority on cloud technologies – particularly in the Microsoft sphere but also with extensive AWS, Citrix, Cisco and Novell credentials – and I’m positive he will be a valuable asset for our enterprise customers to leverage as they migrate to more dynamic, secure and software-driven hybrid architectures. Alongside Phil’s more internal focus on the advanced systems, networks and infrastructure that underpin our solutions, their combined expertise is just what we need at the head of a growing technical team.”


Antony Eason has over 20 years’ experience leading diverse enterprise-scale IT projects in both the US and UK – most recently migrating a series of large organisations into the cloud. He has been a regular speaker for Microsoft at internal and public conferences and frequently presents at conferences across the US at the invitation of the local state education bodies, and other institutions including Stanford University.


“Antony’s US-based experience gives our predominantly UK-weighted customer base a different perspective – enabling them with latest best practice and increasing our relevance to global organisations,” added Claxson. “We remain focused on our existing customers and supporting them through the economic turmoil of the current post-lockdown climate, but we are also planning for future customer acquisition by investing in getting the right people into the right positions.”
