• Xeretec expands team following Landscape acquisition

        • Just five months after acquiring Landscape Group, Xeretec has delivered on one of its acquisition promises, to appoint more staff to further support both businesses. Xeretec Group has increased headcount by 39, bringing its total number of staff to 263.

          The team expansion comes at the same time Xeretec has been the subject of a Vendor Profile analysis published by International Data Corporation (IDC). Entitled 'Xeretec Builds on Landscape Group Takeover to Further Develop as Vendor-Specialist Tier 1 Player', IDC’s Vendor Profile reflects on Xeretec’s acquisition of Landscape Group, which signified a move towards a strategy that sees the company focus on Xerox and HP.

          To enable it to realise its strategy successfully, the company has added ten sales staff to promote Xeretec’s digital print hardware, software and solutions offerings. A further 11 non-sales roles in Xeretec have been filled across analytics, helpdesk agents, site support and IT departments. Meanwhile, Landscape has added ten additional members to its sales team. It has also created a new Telesales-specific team, comprising eight new hires.

          The appointments follow Xeretec’s acquisition of the Landscape Group, in a move that aimed to create a new managed print powerhouse. The acquisition brought together two of the biggest resellers of two of the world’s largest print brands, Xerox  and HP, offering new and existing customers the expanded Group’s technical knowledge, toolsets, service capabilities and market expertise. The acquisition has created new employment opportunities across both businesses, while providing greater scope for Xeretec and Landscape employees to develop their career within a growing, secure, successful and dynamic organisation.  

          Steve Hawkins, Xeretec’s Chief Executive said, “growing the team was one of the most exciting aspects of the Landscape acquisition. I’m very pleased to see how quickly we’ve been able to scale the organisation and the team to match the increased amount of interest we’re now seeing from new and existing customers.”

          Xeretec has 16 facilities across the UK and Ireland (including sales offices and operational facilities) and approximately 100 sales staff. Further to this, the Scotland and Southern organisation joined forces when they came together to operate as one entity in September 2017.
