Security integrator Integralis has promoted Neal Lillywhite to the post of UK managing director.
Lillywhite joined Integralis from vendor Crossbeam as sales and marketing director in 2007 but has now been bumped up to the top job following Simon Church's promotion to group COO in April.
Prime Standard-listed Integralis, which is majority owned by Japanese telco NTT, is the UK's largest pure-play security integrator with local revenue last year of €81.1m (£71m).
Lillywhite was one of the few top UK managers to survive a management reshuffle instigated by Church after he joined Integralis in 2009.
Chruch said: "Having been with Integralis for more than four years, Neal has always been a strong leader within the business and his experience will be key to driving our global business strategy forward."
Lillywhite added: "As Integralis grows globally, we continue to take pride in our local approach to analyse and identify information security risk. Our local strength is what cements our position as the leading pure-play provider of security and information risk management solutions, and we are uniquely placed to capitalise on the worldwide growth opportunities."
