Paul Thomson

Group Chief Executive

Paul Thomson, Group Chief Executive, is responsible for the accelerated and profitable growth of ECS – a true success story. He has deep knowledge of the IT services market that has helped an independent, privately owned business to navigate the challenges faced when up against significantly larger global competition. This skill, combined with his integrity and compassion for colleagues means his leadership has had a profound impact on the company.

Paul is an IT industry veteran with over 25 years’ experience. He worked at Digital Equipment Corporation for 11 years, holding a number of sales and sales management positions, before moving to ACS (UK) Ltd. as Sales Director. At ACS, Paul was responsible for driving the company’s sales success. The impressive growth of the company and its strong customer relationships led to ACS being acquired by Dell in 2006.

Paul then spent four years at Dell, working in a range of senior management positions. Prior to joining ECS, he was Dell’s UK Services Sales Director. His vast experience in working directly with and understanding customers means Paul is perfectly placed to lead a customer-oriented IT services business.
