B Corp certified IT and Cyber Security provider, Optimising IT, has joined Exeter Chamber, the region’s leading independent business membership organisation, as its newest Growth Partner.

With a team across the region of thirty, Optimising IT has recently become the newest sponsor of the Exeter City Football Club Adam Stansfield stand at St James Park, adding to its sponsorship portfolio which includes Cheltenham FC and now Exeter Chamber. 

Chief Executive Todd Gifford said: “We’re an outcomes-focused organisation with trust, simplicity and respect at the core of our approach and client relationships. Our B Corp certification demonstrates these values in action. We knew that Exeter Chamber was an important partnership for us to connect with and support the business community in Exeter, so it was an easy decision for us to become a growth partner. Our values are closely aligned and we look forward to working with the board, team and membership.” 

As a Growth Partner, the two organisations will work strategically together to offer members events and information on IT best practise, managing your cyber security and the process and benefits of B Corp certification, an ever-growing movement in the future of business.
