London

Kevin Towers is the CEO of Techbuyer, a business that provides sustainable IT solutions to organisations across the globe.

Career Overview

While studying for his Science BTEC, Kevin began his career as a junior sales adviser and then account manager at InTechnology PLC in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, a deliverer of high-quality and innovative tech solutions to businesses. In 1998, Kevin rose up the ranks within the company to become business development manager, selling and promoting data storage solutions.

Kevin left InTechnology in 1999 to become a director at PlumData, another Harrogate firm specialising in sales of data storage management solutions. He would remain with the business in 2005, when he would go on to co-launch his own business venture: Pinnacle Data.

Starting the business with one other person, over the years Kevin has helped grow the business to employ over 100 staff with sales in over 80 countries worldwide. The business was later rebranded to Techbuyer and has established itself as a global leader in the buying, refurbishing and selling of data centre equipment. Not only does the firm now sell brand new IT parts, it also purchases used parts such as servers, memory and storage and turns them into high quality refurbished IT equipment.

Boasting seven world-class facilities in key locations within the US, Europe and the Asia and Pacific regions including Australia and New Zealand, Techbuyer stocks a huge global inventory of over 150,000 IT parts including major brands such as HP, Dell, Intel, IBM and Cisco. Kevin held the title of managing director of the business between 2005 and 2015, changing his role to CEO since.

Since 2014, Kevin has balanced his role at Techbuyer with a director’s position at business consultancy and property management firm Frank Ascendancy Ltd, and since 2016 has also been a director at Harrogate-based Woodspring Properties, which specialises in the purchase, resale and maintenance of commercial properties.
