Big news from Ricston UK

Posted on: March 14, 2019

We jumpstart 2019 with new appointments, devisions and a new office in the heart of London!

2018 was a very successful year for Ricston: 70+ projects were delivered in 8 countries, 7 new team members joined our international family bringing our total MuleSoft certifications count to 44. Our hard work was recognised Europe-wide – Ricston was named the National Winner of Malta in SME category in the prestigious European Business Awards.

2018 has brought both great opportunities and challenges to our start-up sized organisation – making company growth and expansion one of our key priorities for 2019.

We are only one quarter into 2019 and already have some great news and changes within our team that we would like to share and give a special shout-out to our expanding office in London!

The new add-on to Ricston’s organisational structure: Office of the CTO

Office of the CTO (OCTO) is a team at Ricston that focuses on capabilities and contributions of our key technical team members, in order to channel their experiences to define strategy, technical direction, methodology and processes both within Ricston and for the client teams with which we collaborate.

Kevin Jervis, CTO of Ricston

 

Heroes scale or die trying! We will get even better at first standardising and then industrialising our delivery capability and methodology,

states Kevin Jervis, the newly appointed CTO at Ricston.

 

 

 

Huge shout out to Kevin!  But that’s not all; we have a number of promotions to announce, including:

  • Justin, who has been promoted to Integration Architect;
  • Clare, our freshly baked Technical Architect;
  • Sam, who joins the ranks of Senior Integration Consultants.

Together they make up the OCTO team.  Hard work pays off and our people prove it over and over again. Congratulations, team! We’re expecting big things from you.

A role of Regional Director established to lead our expanding business in the UK

Another person deserving our applause for two successful years driving Ricston’s team in the UK as a Country Manager, and from now on becoming a Regional Director in the UK – Mr. Terry Lockwood! Terry is now responsible for growth, development and execution of strategy of the business in the UK.

Ricston will be growing, creating an exciting team and keeping clients happy by focusing on quality delivery,

says Terry Lockwood commenting on Ricston UK vision for 2019.

 

 

We wish you the best of luck, Terry! Let’s shoot for the stars 😉

New shiny office space in London ‘centrale’: finally we have a never-ending coffee supply!

Just like all people, superheroes need to have hideouts and headquarters where they make great things happen. Not to mention, that great works of integration code often require large cups of coffee, or two (or, 3…4…5…) and sometimes, a cold pint of lager as a reward. These and other essential amenities needed to support our team-mates (rumours are – there’s even a foosball table down there. 😉 ) are found in our new office space located at WeWork, Finsbury Pavement at Moorgate, London City.

If you happen to be around, make sure to stop by to say hello!

We feel extremely confident about our upgraded team and can’t wait to see what’s next. Bring it on, 2019!

By the way – one of our top priorities this year is growing the team to continuously keep up with the high demand (which doesn’t seem to be going anywhere).

Mike Randall, CEO of Ricston

 

Growing a services team that is >120% busy isn’t easy but there is a plan to strike the right balance,

our CEO – Mike Randall confirms.
