Aberdeen-based managed service and data network providers, IFB, has appointed Jane Stewart as Non-Executive Director to the board.

Jane’s appointment strengthens the team at IFB as it further commits to its major strategic growth plans throughout the UK. Jane brings proven strategic, commercial and high growth experience to IFB.  With a CA background, Jane has over 20 years’ experience in private equity, corporate finance and Board level finance and strategy roles. Jane is also currently part-time Strategy Director at William Tracey Group having formerly operated as Group CFO.

IFB’s CEO, Graeme Gordon says: “Jane has supported IFB in its development over the past two years in an ad hoc capacity and I am delighted to welcome her formally to the Board at a key point in the company’s continued growth story.  Despite tough local trading conditions, 2016 saw IFB achieve year-on-year revenue growth with continued positive financial performance.  This has allowed the business to further invest in the right team structure for the future, including Jane’s appointment and recent additions to our Business Development team in the central belt.  Whilst we seek to further expand across the UK, the North East continues to be a key market for IFB.”

Jane Stewart, IFB’s Non-Executive Director comments: “It is an exciting time for IFB and I’m thrilled to work with the Board as the business looks to further evolve its strategy and prepare for significant expansion into new services and new geographical markets.”

Graeme Gordon added: “As our customer needs have evolved, so has our strategy and approach.  IFB recently announced investments totalling over £1.5M in network and managed services which has enabled the business to improve its service offering and to develop new solutions to bring to market in conjunction with key partners.  Our priority continues to be supporting our customers to get on and stay on through exemplary customer service coupled with competitive, innovative connectivity, networking and managed services solutions, delivered via our own infrastructure or that of our key partners.   This, combined with our focus on building the right team for the future, cements our growth ambitions.  Jane’s wealth of experience will help IFB move forward with these plans.”

In addition, IFB has increased its Cloud based data protection service offerings with support from Dell and Cisco Finance.
