August was an exciting month for Mirus, with some major new announcements, some great social events, and more than one celebratory feast - all in a sweltering month which saw temperatures reach a record-breaking 33.3 degrees!
We can't begin without a shout out to our new team members. We had 4 thoroughly talented individuals join us in August, so please join us in welcoming;
Nyall Wilson, our new Service Desk Engineer Apprentice,
Charles Weber, who’s joined our Yellow Team as a Service Desk Engineer,
Our new Project Solutions Engineer, Jon Mitchell, who’s joined our Professional Services Team,
And last but not least, Kirk Crawford, who’s joined our Service Operations Team as a Service Operations Engineer.
Welcome to all of you! It’s great seeing the MTeam grow every month - and with August it seems almost every team has seen an injection of new talent.
Speaking of growth, we’ve had some pretty huge news this month; Mirus IT has become part of the ITLab Group! You may have noticed from the rebranding on our social platforms and our colleagues LinkedIn accounts, not to mention our numerous social media announcements.
To celebrate the news, we spent the day of the announcement meeting our new associates, eating pizza for dinner, sharing a celebratory cake, and meeting even more of our new team on a night out on the own. We rounded off the week’s exciting announcement with a sumptuous hog roast, champagne and yet more cake – which, needless to say, was enjoyed by all. You can read more about this exciting news here.
Yet amidst all the excitement, we still can’t forget the MTeam’s high achievers this month.
Congratulations to Gareth Davies for winning a well-deserved Colleague of the Month for August. Gareth’s already delighting in his new role as Field Service Manager, as these warm remarks from the rest of the team can attest:
“Superstar Gareth Davies please, as I have filled his workshop with rubbish this month and he’s (almost) not complained about it”
“Gareth D for me😊”
“Gareth, always reliable”
“Doing an awesome job in his new role whilst making sure the old one is supported”
Well done Gareth, your hard work is massively appreciated!
Meanwhile, the marketing team continues to up its game with another new accreditation. Well done to Ali Khan for passing the HubSpot Sales Software exam. Great work!
That’s not the only accreditation that the team has been eyeing up this month, however. We’re very proud to announce that we’ve been once again shortlisted for a CRN Channel Award – this time for SMB Reseller of the Year! We look forward to another great awards night, and wish the best of luck to everyone participating!
And finally, as is tradition, we ended the month with that old Mirus staple - the Friday Feed. We enjoyed barbeque burgers and sausages, all cooked wonderfully by Jack Winkel, with the usual selection of pick ‘n’ mix for dessert (or breakfast, for some of the more sweet-toothed members!).
Next month sees the little ones going back to school as the summer holidays come to an end - but as everyone winds back into the usual routine, we're certain there's plenty surprises in store for the MTeam next month. Roll on September!
