Azzurri CEO steps down following Maintel buyout

Azzurri CEO Chris Jagusz has left the business.

His departure comes three months after the unified comms dealer was bought by Maintel in a £48.5m transaction. The purchase saw Maintel become one of the largest resellers in the market.

Jagusz will step down from the top job after leading Azzurri for two years. Mantein confirmed there will be no replacement, 'Azzurri Communications will report to Eddie Buxton, Maintel Group CEO'.

Commenting on his departure, Jagusz said: ‘With the integration of Azzurri into Maintel progressing well, I’ll be leaving Azzurri in the summer. I’m really pleased that Azzurri has found such an excellent home, knowing that Maintel’s service ethic, technical skills and financial stability will give customers and employees confidence in the combined larger entity.’

Jagusz joined Azzurri in 2014 during a spate of redundancies and office closures. Since then he has turned the business around, securing a number of public sector wins and adding EE to its network roster alongside O2. Maintel CEO Eddie Buxton has previously said he will look to review these partnerships.

Cloud services have also been a particularly strong area of growth for the business. This is something which new owner Maintel will look to take advantage of. Buxton previously told Mobile that Azzurri will help ‘accelerate Maintel’s shift into hosted cloud and data’.
