Paradyne acquired by Generation-e to form productivity powerhouse

The journey to build Paradyne into a leading cloud consultancy over the past 6 years has been one fraught with pleasure and pain.

At a Microsoft event a few months ago the CEO of Generation-e and myself found ourselves finding a lot of common ground as leading Microsoft partners. The conversations evolved to talking about what we could potentially do together, and the difference we could make.

Long story short: Paradyne has been acquired by Generation-e. Between both of us we form quite a powerhouse when it comes to human collaboration and communication.

On a personal level this will help me realise my vision of changing the way people work and communicate with each other, and to help title Work/Life balance to be more of a Life/Work balance.

This would not have been possible without the tremendous effort of the Paradyne team who will probably never fully know how much I appreciate their efforts to build Paradyne into the success it is today. And of course my wife who is not just the woman behind the man, but also a key part of our team and success.

I look forward to making a bigger change to our customers and the people who work within them!

  1. Wasn’t expecting to hear this, however it’s good news. Wishing you all the best in your journey. What is going to happen with the blog, continue?

    Also, did you pre-order a 950 or 950xl, or will you be keeping your iPhone?



    1. Outsiders generally don’t hear about deals until they’re done. 🙂
      Thanks for the warm wished Gabi. The blog will definitely continue, I’ll probably just update the look to match new corporate branding soon.
      As for the phone saga – a blog on that coming out now that I have time to write again. In short: iPhone sold, using a 930 with Windows 10 until I see a good holiday special for a 950 XL. The switch back story will be somewhat of a rollercoaster to read. 🙂
