Neil Briscoe, co-founder of 6point6’s Cloud Gateway business unit and Leeds native, commented: “The over-riding reason for choosing Leeds is that it’s the right place for 6point6 to find the skills needed to grow its service and development teams quickly and with the best people. We’re starting with just a handful of staff here, but we aim to create a lot of high-quality jobs here in the next couple of years to meet the demands of our business growth.
“Many other technology businesses have chosen Leeds as their base, giving us an opportunity to learn, cross-sell and collaborate with them. As a proud Leeds native, I’m fully aware of the potential of Leeds to play a leading role in the ‘northern powerhouse’, which will be driven by 21st century digital businesses like 6point6,” he added.
