“I am extremely proud of what we have achieved over the last three years,” said Stott. “The company has transformed itself and is in pole position to take advantage of the incredible opportunity available in the marketplace. It has been a pleasure working alongside the management team at such an exciting point in the company’s development. The company is in great shape, with good long term growth prospects supported by a solid foundation of people, processes and systems.”

SAS has developed not only an outstanding portfolio of managed services but also an enviable track record in customer service. With our continued focus on partners, our people capability and our clients I’m sure we can anticipate future success.”
