Six Degrees Appoints Vince DeLuca as Chief Executive Officer

Six Degrees has appointed Vince DeLuca as Chief Executive Officer as it seeks to distinguish itself as the UK’s leading provider of secure, integrated cloud services.

London, UK, Tuesday 18th June, 2024 – Secure, integrated cloud services provider, Six Degrees, has appointed Vince DeLuca to the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO), replacing outgoing CEO Simon Crawley-Trice.

Vince joins Six Degrees from digital operating transformation provider Sapphire Systems where he led as CEO for three-and-a-half years, taking the business most latterly through to the point of exit. Vince has previously held a series of CEO and senior leadership roles within the technology sector, including with Logicalis Group, Infocrossing, and Marconi.

Six Degrees has evolved significantly in recent years, aligning its secure cloud portfolio to the needs of businesses today and evolving its services to place customers at the heart of everything it does. Vince’s appointment will ensure continuity for customers while adding new drive to enabling the business’ vision to be the UK’s number one provider of secure, integrated cloud services.

Vince DeLuca, CEO, Six Degrees, said: “Today, it’s more important than ever that businesses place digital transformation at the heart of their strategies. Optimised cloud services, intelligence-led security, and agile connectivity between workplaces and workspaces are no longer nice-to-haves – they are essential. With our expertise in secure cloud technology and our fantastic connectivity roots, Six Degrees has every right to be the go-to digital transformation partner for UK businesses. I am excited to join the team and work to make that happen.”

Six Degrees was founded in 2011 and is backed by private equity firm Charlesbank Capital Partners. Commenting on Vince’s appointment, Michael Choe, Managing Director & CEO, Charlesbank said: “We thank Simon for his leadership over the past several years as Six Degrees set out on a path to become the UK’s leading secure integrated cloud services provider. We have known Vince for a long time and have been impressed with his leadership in delivering digital transformation solutions to enterprises across the globe. We are confident he will continue to drive the Six Degrees business forward.” 

Six Degrees thanks its outgoing CEO Simon Crawley-Trice for his invaluable leadership and contribution throughout his three-year tenure.
