3 Step IT gears up for UK growth with new MD

Bracknell, UK, 22 February 2017 – 3 Step IT, the specialist IT financing and lifecycle management company, has appointed Jason Skidmore as managing director of its UK operations. Jason takes over the leadership of the business from Jon Davies and Peter Hetherington, who established the UK office 12 years ago.

Jason brings deep experience of technology financing and an enviable track record of growth through collaborative relationships. As the Commercial Leader for GE Capital's UK Vendor Finance division he successfully rebuilt its commercial strategy. At Dell Financial Services, where he was the EMEA Channel Director, he led the finance strategy for Dell's channel partners, driving substantial growth.

Commenting on the new appointment, Carmen Ene, 3 Step IT’s Group CEO, said: “We see IT financing, especially value-added financing, in a state of flux. There is a clear trend towards access, rather than ownership, to use a wide variety of assets. We see growing concerns for environmental and sustainable operations, which drives re-use in the circular economy along with the rapid rise of Fintech’s using new technology like blockchain. We believe this will drive greater integration of services into financing and IT life cycle financing in particular. A natural consequence of this will be growth by partnerships and alliances”.

“The UK represents one of the largest markets for the 3 Step IT Group, and we have ambitious plans to invest in and grow the UK business,” said Jason Skidmore. “This is a time of transition for the industry where traditional funding models need to innovate to keep pace with customers ever-changing requirements. With our experienced team and bespoke service offering, we are well placed to help businesses take advantage of these new opportunities.”
