Datatec Forms Mason Advisory (5/20/14)
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 | Comments

Datatec announced that it has formed Mason Advisory within its consulting division. The new company, previously a division of Analysys Mason, will see Datatec partner with Steve Watmough, the new CEO and shareholder of Mason, to develop a highly focused independent IT advisory business.

The core focus of the separated business will be consulting on the growing IT, cloud, security and mobile technology requirements of major public and commercial enterprises.

“The separation of the division from Analysys Mason, which will continue to focus on providing strategic TMT consulting services and research, and the return of Watmough, will bring increased management focus and new talent,” Jens Montanana, CEO of Datatec, said. “This new structure will allow Mason to maximize opportunities presented by the fundamental shifts in technology and increasingly specialized client demands.”

Watmough is an experienced industry professional and entrepreneur who spent four years at Mason Communications prior to it being acquired by Datatec. In 2000, Steve co-founded Xantus, a specialist IT consulting business that was sold to KPMG in 2011, joining KPMG as a partner and head of its U.K. CIO advisory practice thereafter. Prior to joining Mason Communications, Steve held senior technical management roles at Boots for more than 10 years.

Duncan Swan, an existing partner of Analysys Mason, will join Watmough in management of Mason Advisory. Duncan, who has more than 25 years of industry experience, joined Mason Communications in 1995. Swan is an editorial advisor to RadioResource International magazine.

Datatec operates in three principal areas of the information communications technology (ICT) industry through its three respective divisions: Westcon Group, Logicalis and Datatec Consulting Services, comprising Analysys Mason, Mason Advisory and Via Group providing strategic and technical consulting.
