Growth plans and new MD at Bristol-based Chorus

Chorus, a Bristol-based IT services organisation, has embarked on an ambitious five-year growth plan driven by the appointment of a new managing director.  

In moving from operations director into the role of managing director at Chorus, Nicola Saner will be leading the executive team and driving the five-year business strategy. 

The managed services provider is now in its 21st year and specialises in Microsoft technologies. In 2018 it won the Customer Excellence Award at the Business Leader Awards and was named winner in the Business IT support category at the Go:Tech Awards. 

Chorus has also strengthened its senior management team as part of the growth strategy and recently launched a new security operations centre to help UK organisations benefit from advanced security protection and support against growing cyber threats. 

Nicola Saner said: “When Chorus was founded in 1999 the goal was to bring enterprise-level technology and support into the SME market and to help organisations of all sizes get the most from their IT, which is why our mission is ‘using technology to put people first.

“This year has been especially challenging for organisations, but we have seen the incredible flexibility and importance of technology. Now more than ever, organisations need the right support to help them get the most from their Microsoft technology and securely embrace a cloud-orientated modern workplace. One of the cornerstones of where we are today is that we’ve built a strong culture and I believe it is our expertise combined our approach that has attracted staff to work for us and appealed to our clients.  

“Key to this was the launch earlier this year of our new company values: ‘stay curious, embrace the future, champion the truth and enjoy the journey.

“Thanks to our excellent staff and customers Chorus has grown consistently over the last 21 years. I am excited about the opportunities ahead of us and looking forward to leading Chorus through the next phase of its growth.”
