This year has been one of significant change at Pro2col, I’m glad to say all for the better.

We’ve added three people to the team this year; two senior technical consultants, Mark Allen and Richard Auger, both of whom have considerable experience with managed file transfer (MFT) expertise. Mark joined us having spent time working with Ipswitch and spent the last 18 months consulting on MFT systems and Richard came all the way from Australia to join us having spent the last 12 years managing MFT systems for Philip Morris! Chantelle joined us to become our Office Manager and bring greater efficiency to the team.

After six long years in an office that wasn’t big enough we moved into a brand new, purpose built unit, two doors away in December. The team couldn’t be happier and it now means we’ve got room to accommodate customers and suppliers for meetings. Although it’s quite likely we’ll still head to the Captain’s Club overlooking the River Stour at Christchurch on a nice day.

It’s been a great year for business too. By adding to the team we’ve increased our capabilities exponentially, which has enabled us to work on some extremely interesting opportunities with some fantastic companies. All in all, as the owner of the company I couldn’t have asked for much more (except a Lotto win perhaps).

I’d like to put on record my thanks to my exceptional team who’ve helped to make this year such a special one in the evolution of the business. In addition I’d like to thank our suppliers who’ve helped us to drive significant growth this year. However, I have a question to my suppliers. Which one of you very generous people sent us a hamper with the following message?

“Thank you for all your support. We appreciate your business. Have a great holiday season and our best wishes for the New Year!”

After trying the tracking number and scouring the packaging, we’re still none the wiser who sent it to us. Whoever you are, thank you we’ll enjoy all the treats.


To all our customers, thank you for your business in 2015. We’re striving to improve our services again to you next year, and have some exciting announcements to make in the coming weeks.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.
