: Continued expansion has led to leading outsourced IT services provider Resolution IT, moving to bigger, custom-designed offices.
Olly Duquemin and Steve Brehaut started Resolution IT in September 2007 (along with Phil Duquemin) in a small converted barn as an office, focussing on looking after the IT needs of home and small business users. During the intervening 12 years the business has moved to offices in Perelle, extended to double its size to cope with continued growth and has now moved to over 10,000 sq ft of office space at Homefield, Rue de l’Epinel in the Forest.
It became the first Guernsey IT company to become a Microsoft Small Business Specialist, Microsoft Gold Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions Partner, the first to start offering Cyber Essentials certifications, opened offices in Dubai, became recognised as one of the world’s top 501 managed service providers and has grown to just under 35 permanent staff.
Olly Duquemin, CEO at Resolution IT said: ‘We had definitely outgrown our previous offices a while ago so the search was on to find somewhere that gave us not just a space both for now and for future growth but one in which we could create the right environment for our staff. They’re an integral part of the success of the business, spend a lot of their time here so need an environment that has the flexibility of offering both modern work and relaxation areas.’
Steve Brehaut, Managing Director said: ‘It’s been an amazing journey that has seen us add managed print, security, digital transformation and training to the services we offer. And growing the business has enabled us, as keen sportsmen ourselves, to give back to the community and we support the Resolution IT netball team, have supported Guernsey FC Soccer School and currently sponsor the annual Guernsey Rally. We’ve also been able to add our own gym to the new offices so our love of IT and sport continues.’
Olly concluded: Now we’ve been in our new offices a couple of months we’re really able to appreciate the extra space we have been needing for a few years now. It’s fantastic for us all to be working in an environment that showcases the best of what the modern working environment has to offer. We’re looking forward to welcoming clients both new and old and to see what the next 12 years will bring.’
