Aliter Capital appoints Antunes to grow technology and resourcing arm

Aliter Capital, a specialist buy and build investor focused on SME support services businesses, has appointed John Antunes as group CEO for its technology transformation and resourcing investment.

This includes the acquisition of Concept and Jumar, from its £134m Aliter Capital II fund. Antunes’s arrival marks a significant milestone in Aliter’s commitment to accelerating growth and innovation within the platform.

Antunes has worked in senior leadership roles in the global technology sector across the past 25 years. Most recently, he was group MD at Clearcourse, the software and payments business. Previously, he was chief operating officer at Accenture’s Edenhouse business. He has also worked in senior management roles at SAP, Microsoft UK and Sage.

Concept and Jumar currently work across the public and private sectors, providing custom software development, augmenting in-house IT resources and identifying skilled talent to support their customers’ technology and business needs.

The appointment of Antunes is a key step in Aliter’s strategy to develop a leading specialist technology transformation solutions and resourcing group in the UK, following the acquisition of Concept in July 2022 and Jumar in September 2023, the company said.

As group CEO, Antunes will play a crucial role in leading both the organic and inorganic strategy. Antunes will work closely with the Aliter team and the board, including Matt Gillen and Wendy Morgan, current business leaders at Concept and Jumar respectively, who continue in senior board roles.

Aliter is actively looking to acquire complementary businesses to join the technology platform, with a focus on adding Cloud technology solutions (Azure and/or AWS), data, application development and AI capabilities to the group, as well as developing its physical presence in the UK’s main tech centres, including London, Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow.
