Liquid is delighted by the appointment of Colin Meakin, as new CEO of the company.
Colin is an industry veteran with an excellent track record, having been one of the founders of ICM which was successfully floated in the late 90’s before being acquired by Phoenix IT Group plc in 2007. He then left Phoenix and formed a private consortium raising £1.8m to acquire Concorde Excel Holdings which he successfully turned around and used as a vehicle for a ‘buy and build’ strategy creating the £10m turnover Concorde IT Group.
Liquid Chair, Richard Doyle commented:
‘We have been looking for the right candidate to take this business forward and take advantage of the exponential growth opportunity for some 9 months and I am delighted we have been able to recruit Colin. We are at an important phase of the development for Liquid Accounts and Colin’s background and experience will help us grow the business and source the right growth funding options.
Colin takes over from Chris Eccles, who was recruited as Sales/Commercial Director and was latterly acting as interim CEO, resigned to take up an opportunity he couldn’t refuse with a former colleague. Chris remains a supportive shareholder and we wish him all the best in his new venture.
