Niu Solutions, the leading provider of managed IT services, has today announced the appointment of Sean Shepley as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO) to enhance its capabilities in delivering robust and secure services to our clients. The appointment reflects the significant growth that the company is experiencing across the business.
Mr. Shepley brings almost 30 years of IT industry experience to the role, ranging from hands-on work with grass-roots IT operations, managing IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) processes and through delivering complex managed service outsourcing projects for a number of high profile blue chip companies. He joins from Computacenter, where he held the position of Managed Infrastructure Services Director.
Previously, Mr. Shepley held the title of Operations Director at Computacenter, and was formerly head of ITIL Service Optimisation at the company. Prior to that, he held management positions with BT, IBM, and NTL.
In his role at Niu, Mr. Shepley will lead day-to-day operations and will be responsible for the delivery of all client solutions as well as the company’s IT infrastructure offering. Mr. Shepley replaces Jon Williams, who has moved into the position of Chief Technology Officer, where he will take responsibility for a newly established team that aims to accelerate the development of our monitoring and implementation tools and also to develop new products and services that allow our clients to be more effective.
Shaun Ledgerwood, CEO at Niu Solutions, said:
“I am very pleased to welcome Sean to the Niu Solutions team. He has acquired a wealth of important business skills and a practical understanding across all facets of the IT landscape from his extensive management experience in roles with some of the biggest players in the industry.

“Jon will continue his incredibly valuable work with the company in a role which will allow him to focus on enhancing and expanding our technical capabilities, and ultimately improve the service we offer our clients.
“Niu Solutions has experienced rapid growth over a decade in business, and our strong sales record is testament to the increasing demand for our services and our current position as one of the UK’s leading IT solutions and infrastructure businesses.
“Not only do we pride ourselves in constantly investing in the R&D in order to improve our innovative IT solutions, but we also place a huge importance on developing our people and attracting the brightest industry talent. I am looking forward to welcoming Sean to the team, and growing Niu’s operations across the UK even further.”
