The Missing Link takes on Melbourne with new expansion

21 Apr 17

Sydney-based The Missing Link has spread its wings, expanding into Melbourne as it sees rapid growth and high demand from clients in the region.

Alex Gambotto, The Missing Link managing director, says while the company has always worked nationally, demand for its services, including interest in its new ASD 4 as a service offering, has increased to a level enabling it to have a permanent footprint in Melbourne.

He says the investment in the new office has been on the table ‘for a long time’.

The new office is based in Hawthorn, and Gambotto says The Missing Link has already established a strong team of sales and technical staff who hit the ground running, meeting with current and prospective clients.

“We’ve had our Sydney HQ in Artarmon for 20 years this year,” Gambotto says.

“In that time our company has grown substantially, first with the acquisition of Inform Solutions in 2003, followed by Artis Infrastructure Group in 2011 and in 2013 when we launched our security services.”

He says expanding the company’s geographic footprint will strengthen its position and allow it to service new and existing Melbourne clients better.

The expansion will focus on growing the company’s client bse and nurturing current clients.

Gambotto says he’s hoping to grow the Melbourne team ‘soon’.
