Mintivo reshuffles team in bid for B Corp status

By Ben Carey on 6 June, 2024

Wiltshire IT services and solutions company Mintivo has made two internal appointments as the company eyes B Corp status.

Operations Director Mark Adams has taken up the role of People and Culture Director, whilst Service Director Jason Lovell has become Operations Director.

The internal reshuffle comes as the company celebrates winning a major contract with the MoD.

Mark Adams, who has been with the company since its formation, said his new role is geared towards building on Mintivo’s reputation as an attractive place to work. His other priority will be steering the company, which has 30 staff, to B Corp certification.

He said, “Our priority is to focus on our people because taking care of our staff ensures they take care of us. Ultimately, a satisfied workforce delivers outstanding customer service. We need to align their career paths with both our growth and their personal development.

“Through our Mintivo Academy we fund training and exam fees, give staff time away from their day job to train and support them through that journey. Quite a few the technical staff have left their job and come to us with the training and development being one of the factors that swayed them.”

As part of the B Corp accreditation the company is focusing on its corporate social responsibility, including introducing paid staff volunteering days, and strengthening its relationship with Wiltshire Air Ambulance, which is its chosen charity and is also now a customer.

Jason Lovell will oversee the day to day running of the business and is being tasked with a review of the company’s internal processes. His experience of managing service operations in large corporate firms will help ensure the company’s operation keeps pace with its growth.

He said, “I want to continue to develop the way we work so that it aligns with the expectations of more enterprise-sized customers, including entities like defence and the public sector. I want to see our various departments collaborate and support each other, working together to achieve our goals.

“As part of that I will be building a senior leadership team to report into me operationally – service, projects, technical operations – we want a cohesive team that is able to work closely together and lean on one other.”

The two-year contract with MoD Corsham is a game-changed for the company. Jason added, “It’s a really exciting opportunity for us and also for the staff we have working on it. It’s a hell of a thing to have on your CV

“It means we’re doing all the right things at Mintivo. This area of the MoD is hard to get into but now our name’s in there and as we become known as a defence supplier, we will get that name recognition and experience.”
