Wynden Stark

The Client

Wynden Stark is a unique and dynamic entity operating at the forefront of the global search sector. They are international ambassadors for elite institutions, including GQR Global Markets which covers the banking and finance, life sciences,energy and engineering, and technology industries. Wynden Stark partners with business leaders to provide a full suite of solutions tailored to identify, qualify, and deliver best-in-breed talent to prestigious institutions throughout Europe, the United States, Asia, and the Middle East.

The Challenge

Wynden Stark were looking for a global support partner to ensure a consistent and effective experience for their staff and a supporting technology strategy that enabled their fast growing, dynamic and high performing teams to work without service interruptions or be hampered by application performance. With a range of ‘cloud’ based solutions and an environment that has grown quickly to meet the demands of the business, they needed a partner who could not only support their current needs but also consider options to deliver the future requirements of the company.

The Solution

Working in partnership with their existing team, Astro provides a 24×7, in-house, Managed Service solution thatcovers all aspects of support from first line to infrastructure for Wynden Stark covering all their global offices. At thesame time Astro’s subject-matter experts worked as a team to understand the current set up, how it was arrived at and what needed to be done to improve it moving forward within the timescales and budget available. Astro has implemented a solution for an SD WAN, a global wireless solution, Cloud application management and security as well as working with Wynden Stark on their on-boarding and off-boarding processes with a view to improving efficiency.


“Following a robust search for a best in class, Global managed IT service, to help transition away from an in-house offering, Astro were head and shoulders above the other organisations who went through the beauty parade as being able to provide a full range of IT and networking offerings. They have demonstrated their ability to operate on a global level but are also of a size and structure that we believe will give us the personalised and tailored solution we are looking for. Wynden Stark have ambitious plans over the coming years, and I am thrilled to partner with Astro to help us along our journey.”
