Des LekermanCEOKocho

As CEO of Kocho, Des Lekerman spearheads the company’s growth strategy and vision by empowering its growing number of clients to realise their business ambitions through cloud transformation, identity and cybersecurity services.

In 2013, with more than 22 years’ experience in technology, Des led a management buyout and joined the company’s senior leadership team in overseeing its successful rebrand from The Internet Group to TiG Data Intelligence.

Des steered the company through three major acquisitions – including two financial services IT consultancies, MMR IT and netConsult, and leading Microsoft cybersecurity and identity specialist, ThirdSpace – significantly broadening the company’s client portfolio and strengthening its ability to offer award-winning services.

He has seen the company grow from a headcount of 35 to more than 250, with annual revenues of £34 million. The company is on course to more than double that in the next four to five years.

Most recently, Des has headed up the company’s rebrand to Kocho (Japanese for butterfly) symbolising positive change and growth, and embodying its vision to help clients “Become Greater.”
