IT and communications service provider Agile Group has recruited management consultant Gary Lumby to support its ambitious plans for a five-fold increase in turnover by the end of 2016.

Lumby joins Stockton-based Agile Group as a non-executive director following a combined £1m investment from financial backers Northstar Ventures, Lloyds TSB, Let’s Grow and shareholders.

Formed in 2009, Agile aim to increase turnover to £10 million from its present £2.1mn by 2016 as the group increases its market across the North-East and into Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Awarded an MBE for services to the financial services industry in 2008, Hartlepool-born Lumby is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Bankers (Scotland) and holds several other non-executive director positions in other companies.
