Rotherham-based business service provider Parseq has appointed Tony Strong as its new chief executive officer.

He joins from Communisis where he doubled turnover over in the last five years in his role as group operations managing director responsible for 2,000 staff and 14 locations across the UK.

At Parseq, Tony will lead the management team in looking at ways to acquiring customers, retaining market share and improving operational efficiency for the firm’s business clients.

Parseq chairman David Carman said: “Tony is used to working in multi-disciplined, highly regulated environments, he understands our clients’ businesses and has a great affinity with the people on the shop floor because that is where he started his career.

“We are delighted to welcome Tony to the board of Parseq and look forward to working with him as he supports our divisional managing directors to build our client relationships.

“His total focus will be to put us in a different and differentiated league to our competitors.”

Tony said: “I plan to focus on three key areas to achieve our ambitions: attracting and retaining the best talent, profitable growth and operational excellence.”

Parseq’s client portfolio includes the top ten UK banks, utility providers, insurance organisations and charities which it services from its seven UK locations in Rotherham, London, Glasgow, Sunderland, York, Leeds and Brighton.
