Stelios and the team
Richard Gwilliam started easyNetworks in 1995. We install data networks and telephone systems throughout the UK. With our unique knowledge of computer and telephone systems, we became an early adopter of VoIP, the first being installed as early as the year 2000.
Our team have many years of experience working in most industry sectors. We understand how technologies interact and impact each other, which makes easyNetworks a valuable partner for their clients.
In 2018, Richard was invited to talks with Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, known for leading consumer brands such as easyJet and easyHotel. During discussions, both parties realised they had similar values and easyNetworks was invited to join the ‘easy’ family of brands.
In March 2019 easyNetworks unveiled their new look.
The swift transformation with the addition of the distinctive “easy” branding has received an overwhelmingly positive response from clients across the UK.
Sir Stelios said “We are very pleased to welcome easyNetworks into our easy family of brands. This is our first venture in an exciting business sector that offers excellent future growth opportunities. Richard and his team bring something new and exciting to the brand and have already impressed colleagues and associates with their enthusiasm and synergistic plans for the future.”
Richard Gwilliam added “For an experienced and successful entrepreneur like Sir Stelios to recognise our potential, and to make a personal investment in the business, is a huge compliment. We look forward to extending our reach and offering more customers excellent value, and helping Stelios paint the country orange”.
About the easyGroup and the easy family of brands
Stelios is best known for creating easyJet in 1995 when he was just 28 years old. This pan-European low cost airline, headquartered in London, has revolutionised European air travel over the last two decades and it is now flying over 75 million passengers per year across 31 countries with a fleet of more than 260 aircraft. In 2000 Stelios floated easyJet on the London Stock Exchange in order to fund growth but he and his family have always remained the largest shareholders with a c 33% stake. As easyJet PLC became one of the biggest UK companies by market value, Stelios successfully campaigned to set a dividend policy that now distributes half of annual profits by way of dividends to all shareholders.
