virtualDCS appoints Non-executive Director

Leeds based cloud computing and disaster recovery specialist, virtualDCS, has appointed technology expert, Dave Helm, as a non-executive director to spearhead the company’s next phase of growth.

Dave co-founded Leeds based IT services business, Blue Logic, which supplied technology, cloud solutions and IT security. Blue Logic employed an 80-strong team and with an annual turnover of more than £8million when it was sold in 2019. 

Following this success, Dave now holds non-executive director roles at several leading technology companies, including Leeds firms, Rabb-IT and Cindercone. 

Dave said, “over the last decade virtualDCS has made a big impact in the IT industry, establishing a market-leading range of products including its CloudCover Disaster Recovery suite and its market-leading Microsoft 365 backup solution, CloudCover 365. These products are now widely used by clients across the public and private sectors.

“When this is combined with the high level of talent within the business, it means virtualDCS has a very compelling offering, with significant growth potential. I’m really looking forward to the challenges this role offers and helping to guide virtualDCS on its next phase of expansion.” 

Richard May, Managing Director at virtualDCS added, “I’ve known Dave for a long time, and he has a wealth of experience in the IT industry, a thorough understanding of how to grow successful technology companies and a forthright approach to business. This will all prove invaluable to virtualDCS.

“There is no doubt that bringing Dave on board is a major coup for virtualDCS.”

The company now employs a 16-strong team and is currently recruiting an Azure solutions architect and a modern workplace technical specialist, alongside several other key appointments across the company.
