Red Helix sets sights on major growth plans with two key appointments

Network Security and Performance Specialist Red Helix strengthens its senior management team to support its growth plans

Established in 1984, Red Helix provides solutions and services to improve on-premise and cloud application performance and cyber-security for major UK organisations across a range of sectors. The business plays a key role in helping organisations to build, validate and optimise their networks and secure their most critical information.

Marion Stewart joins the Red Helix management team as Chief Operations Officer to lead the development of Red Helix Security and Network Operations Services for customers. Marion will help the Red Helix team to further enhance its operations and service delivery to provide a world-class customer experience. She brings 30 years of industry experience in companies such as Pulsant, Daisy Group, Alternative Networks and Star Technology.

In addition to Marion’s appointment, David Critchley joins Red Helix as Chief Commercial Officer to lead both sales and marketing at Red Helix. David has extensive industry experience having worked for Cisco, Dimension Data, Rack Space and Mobile Iron. He will help to expand Red Helix’s sales operations.

Both David and Marion will join the board to provide fresh input to strategy and enhance Red Helix’s overall ability to execute and deliver on its growth plans.

With this management expansion Red Helix is well placed to support major businesses with their digital transformation plans as they scale their networks and improve their defences against the increasing risk of cyber-attack.

John Carson, Managing Director of Red Helix commented “We are excited to have both David and Marion join Red Helix to expand our capability and support our planned growth. In addition to our existing team, David and Marion bring extensive experience and capability and align to our growth ambitions for the business.”

The appointments follow the firm’s partnership with mid-market private equity investor LDC in February. LDC continues to support the existing management team in expanding Red Helix’s suite of hardware and software products and related services to help its enterprise customers further enhance their cyber-security.
