Soho-based reseller and systems integrator Root6 is to open an office in Glasgow.

The venture will be run by Alex Keane and Gerry McGachy, who most recently worked at reseller The Picture Exchange.

Root6 managing director Marcus Hume-Humphreys said: “There are not many people into whose hands we would entrust the Root6 brand, but we feel very comfortable with Alex and Gerry and we look forward to extending the reach of our business through their efforts.”

The new office will handle sales and technical support and is expected to be open by the end of October.
