High Wycombe, UK – 16th November 2018

10 years ago, activereach was just an idea!

The company was incorporated in 2008 and founded by Directors Mike Revell and Raza Rizvi. The duo had worked together previously with great success, holding senior management positions at several of the UK’s top ICT businesses. The idea back then was to create a technically excellent VAR, dedicated to supplying bespoke networking solutions to UK SMEs.

activereach turns ten: Raza Rizvi and Mike Revell cut the cake

Today, the company has evolved significantly and is now of one the UK’s most respected systems integrators of IT networking and security solutions. The company serves hundreds of customers across the UK and EMEA including many FTSE 500 businesses in the retail, financial and gaming sectors. activereach works in partnership with over 30 of the world’s leading technology vendors, selecting the latest technological innovations from all corners of the globe.

Mike Revell, activereach’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating 10 great years of trading. From the outset, we’ve been lucky enough to work with some fantastic technology partners and dedicated, talented staff. Some employees have been with us since day 1. Our highly skilled staff really know their stuff when it comes to IT security, allowing us to deliver the specialist expertise our customers demand.”

The company celebrates a decade of successful business

activereach is also proud of its commitment to corporate social responsibility; offering local student placement & internship schemes, as well as sponsoring local charities every year.

Do you remember 2008, the year activereach was established? Android phones did not exist, Amazon’s cloud services had yet to land in Europe and the iPad was two years away. Since then the IT industry has really moved on. In celebration of the last ten years, activereach has written an in-depth article on the changing face of cybersecurity over the last decade.

Looking to the future, Mike Revell, said: “activereach is entering a new era of challenges and opportunities. We will continue to stay ahead of the curve by investing in new technologies that can truly transform business. Ultimately we want to continue to be a company that people want to work for and do business with.”
