The company operates five refurbishment centres, including one in England, where redundant IT devices are refurbished for reuse. In 2020, it processed over half a million devices, saving them from landfill, with 98 per cent of end-of-contract devices given a second life.   

Carmen Ene, CEO of BNP Paribas 3 Step IT & 3stepIT, said: “The UK market represents an opportunity to reach thousands of large business customers who need support to manage their enterprise IT more efficiently and sustainably. Graham’s appointment is a statement of our intent to seize that opportunity head on.”

Jason Skidmore, chief commercial officer of BNP Paribas 3 Step IT & 3stepIT, said: “The UK has announced plans to tackle the electronic waste crisis and reach net-zero, with a number of changes in the pipeline. This means change is afoot for businesses too, with the transition to a more sustainable approach to IT management becoming increasingly urgent. Graham’s vast experience in business development and operational excellence will undoubtedly help to support these businesses to transition to a greener approach to enterprise IT, and in turn, accelerate the execution of our ambitious growth plan.”
