ASX-listed integrator looks for new staff as its starts to rebrand under the Synergy masthead

ASX-listed integrator, ComputerCorp, is looking to bring on new staff as part of a transformation and rebranding of the business, its chief says.

Acting CEO, Peter Cappendell, said the company was eager to expand its outsourcing division in light of its recent Synergy Plus purchase. Under the $9.3 million deal, ComputerCorp acquire Synergy’s IBM infrastructure business including mid-range server and storage skills, related managed and hosted services and maintenance contracts.

The company is now on the hunt for a services director to sit alongside managed services director, Roy Pater. ComputerCorp is also planning to bring on-board additional staff for the Synergy side of the business in WA, Queensland and NSW.

A rebranding under the Synergy name will also be enacted in November.

“We have embarked on a new strategy built around transforming the business,” Cappendell told ARN. “We’re not simply going to integrate Synergy into the greater ComputerCorp engine. We are trying to align the Synergy business as a vertical.

“We want to leverage the 35 Synergy staff and grow that business across all states.”

The rebranding coincides with the appointment of industry veteran, Joe Arcuri, as national sales director, and the retrenchment of former eastern sales director, Tony Heywood.

“Joe is part of that broader picture of driving growth through the whole organisation,” Cappendell said.

Although ComputerCorp has been the subject of two failed mergers with Leading Solutions and most recently, S Central, Cappendell said it remained focused on acquisitions to round out its offerings.

“The benefit of being a listed company is you can use shares as currency to act on an acquisition,” he said. “We will continue with that strategy. It’s not just about building critical mass, but also looking for more niche players that will complement our own.”
