How it all began?
In December 2003, a young, fresh faced Jon Woliter joined the Ashgates Group as a Trainee IT Technician. At the time, the Ashgates Group employed ~ 40 staff and Jon joined to assist the incumbent third-party IT Consultant to support the growing needs of the business. At the time of joining, Jon discussed the possibility with ownership of turning IT Services into something that could be offered out externally to clients. At the time this seemed an aspiration that was way off, but one that everyone thought was possible.
Jon had taken sole responsibility for the Support of the Ashgates Group and was busy planning and implementing Ashgates move from its office on Friar Gate in Derby, to its current state of the art, office on Pride Park, where Ashgates successfully moved to in September 2005.
By 2008, Jon had completed multiple technical qualifications and accreditations, including Comptia N+, ITIL and Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer courses, building his knowledge and experience year on year. He was ready to take Ashgates IT out to market!
Ashgates celebrated its 10th year in their new Home on Pride Park and between 2008 & 2016 Jon had grown the Ashgates IT client base by 2,500%!
In January 2021, Jamie Blount joined Jon's team as our Service Desk Manager, to bolster the management Team and help ensure our excellent client service delivery continued into our next stage of growth.
Between 2017 and 2022 Jon has grown the business by a further 430% and has developed and nurtured a truly excellent technical team to support our growing client base and help deliver the best possible client service.
