Logicalis, an international IT solution and managed services provider has announced that effective 1st March 2020, Mark Rogers will transition from his current CEO role to a Non-Executive Director (NED) role, at which point Robert Bailkoski will succeed Mark; Bob, currently COO, joined the company four years ago as CFO.
Mark joined Logicalis 16 years ago and has spent the past 13 years in the pivotal roles of COO and CEO. During this period, the company experienced significant growth, with annual revenues increasing from $0.8bn to $1.7bn and EBITDA from $27m to $93m.
In these roles, Mark has been extensively involved in M&A transactions and has overseen the integration of acquired businesses into the Logicalis Group, which expanded from a 9-country operation in 2007 to 26 countries today.
Under his leadership, Logicalis has fostered a culture of professionalism, enthusiasm, and commitment in driving forward the importance and relevance of Logicalis for all its stakeholders while repositioning the company from an ICT integrator towards an IT solutions provider focused on providing digital enablement services to its customers.
