IT consultancy firm, Glintech, has hired seven new staff to keep up with its growth strategy.
Managing director, Dimitri Spyridopoulos, said the company had experienced about 120 per cent year-on-year growth. It has been rapidly increasing since opening its doors four years ago. "We have 75 staff now and we aim to double that number by the end of next financial year," he said. "I believe we can sustain our growth because we have built up some good client relations."
The company has appointed a new business development manager, Mandy Harris; senior IT solutions and strategy consultant, Gerhard Diedericks; principal consultant, Tanguy Crusson; two senior consultants, Marcin Popielarz and Willem Erasmus; as well as two consultants, Eva Pettersson and Johan Westerdahl.
Spyridopoulos plans to recruit additional technical staff for its architecture and development services. He is also interested in expanding Glintech's focus to include project management, testing and business analysis skills.
"We have been doing this in the past but we will be adopting project management as a core part of our business in the coming year," Spyridopoulos said. "We seem to be picking up a lot of business in the financial and government sectors."
Customers include Westpac, Norwich Union and AMP. Glintech also recently won a contract with Nokia Australia. Spyridopoulos intends to establish the company's service business on an international scale with a focus on UK and Singapore markets.
"The objective is to be able to keep [our year-on-year growth] up," he said.
