Madison Gurkha and ITSX choose joint future
On 2 January 2017 Madison Gurkha and ITSX have taken the first step towards full integration into a single IT security company.
“Over the past 16 years, Madison Gurkha has slowly but steadily grown to be the leading technical IT security company in the Netherlands. We are now ready for the next stage of our development.”, says Remco Huisman, Madison Gurkha's commercial director.
Until recently Madison Gurkha held a majority interest in ITSX, led by Ralph Moonen. Ralph built ITSX into a strong player in IT security consultancy. Merging Madison Gurkha and ITSX is therefore a logical next step.
“As director of the subsidiary company ITSX, I look forward to my new role at Madison Gurkha. In the coming months, we will work on the further integration of Madison Gurkha and ITSX. This will result in one single company over the course of 2017.”, states Ralph Moonen.
The upcoming integration will also bring other changes. As of 2 January 2017 Dirk Jan van den Heuvel (founder of Collis and former executive director/VP at Underwriter Laboratories (UL)) is part of Madison Gurkha as majority shareholder and managing director. Dirk Jan will complete the board of directors together with Ralph Moonen (technical director) and Remco Huisman (commercial director).
The integration of Madison Gurkha and ITSX, in conjunction with the new board of directors, will give Madison Gurkha a very strong position within the Dutch IT security market. It will also provide opportunities for potential expansion in Europe and further afield.
With this change, Madison Gurkha has made a conscious decision to preserve its independence. The organisations that we provide services to will be able to continue to trust our dependable, objective and professional advice. Together, we will contribute to a secure IT landscape. Not only through optimisation of (technical) IT security, but also in the areas of risk management, compliance, and privacy issues.
