Andy Portlock

Group Operations Director

Having joined the industry 20 years ago, Andy is proud to be part of the continual rate of change within the IT & Telecoms sector, working with industry-leading vendors and manufacturers, to shape future technology for businesses across the UK.

As Group Operations Director, Andy assumes overall responsibility for the operations of Utilize. This includes our people, commercial and operational management encompassing, service, support, projects, consultancy, and strategy. Andy's focus ensures that Utilize delivers business-enabling technology solutions backed up with market-leading customer services.

Andy’s role encompasses product and vendor selection, relationship building with technology partners, building a commercial proposition, and working with other Board Directors on go-to-market strategies.

A busy Dad of two, Andy is always on the move – even on his days off. At the weekends, you’ll find him running around after his sons or sampling a good bottle of red (although not at the same time, of course).
