North East headquartered razorblue, which boasts seven offices and completed its second acquisition in as many years in 2021 has welcomed Elizabeth Swan, a chartered accountant with over 20 years’ industry experience, to manage its finance department and also brings another female face to the company’s board.


Elizabeth said: “Having worked in larger corporates, the experience I can bring is applying the knowledge of how finance operates in larger companies and employing those best practices here. razorblue has grown rapidly and there are lots of projects we can undertake to ensure our finance systems are equipped to deal with that growth; in terms of making financial processes more efficient, quicker and with less manual processing. Having experience of delivering finance projects will be invaluable towards making those improvements.”


Women make up only 16% of IT professionals in the UK, but razorblue’s workforce is made up of 24% females, significantly beating the industry average. Over a third of these are in managerial or director roles.


Dan Kitchen, CEO of Razorblue Group said: “It’s great to have Elizabeth as part of the team, and her extensive knowledge and experience will be invaluable to us. Strategy is important to us, and her background means that she is well equipped to work with our team to deliver continued growth and success.”


razorblue now has a headcount exceeding 160, with plans to recruit over 25 additional team members in the next 12 months to support its plans to continue expanding its nationwide coverage and adding more products and services to the current offering.


razorblue specialises in managed IT, security services, super-fast connectivity, cloud and hosting and business software solutions across a broad range of industries.
