Atkinson has been at the Leeds-based firm for two years and will take up the new role with immediate effect.
As COO Atkinson will work alongside the five-strong board of directors to ensure robust structures and procedures are in place to drive growth plans at the telephony, mobile and internet specialist.
This includes hitting £15m turnover by 2022 through a combination of organic growth and acquisition.
On her new role, Atkinson said: “I’m incredibly proud and excited to take on the role of chief operating officer at a company I have thoroughly enjoyed working at for the last two years.
“The growth in the business has been tremendous since I joined, which is a trend we aim to continue. My focus is to make sure that we have the infrastructure we need to see new acquisitions dovetail into our existing business as well as helping us to maintain strong, consistent growth and deliver best-in-class service”.
“A lot of businesses are suffering at the moment but we are taking steps now to ensure that The Technology Group comes out of this period stronger and even better at what we do. We have an amazing team and everyone has stood to be counted at this tough time. You couldn’t ask for more.”
The Technology Group CEO Jonathan Marsden added: “We are super proud of Michelle for all she has done already, and I know there is still a lot that she wants to do and ideas to action that will make the business the very best it can be.”
