During his thirteen year career with Sage, Guy has lead the successful growth of our business in Europe and, more recently, in Asia. He has a strong track record of profit growth, both organically and through the successful acquisition and integration of companies.
Sage has leading positions in its markets and many opportunities for growth. Guy is well qualified to realise these opportunities, with his international experience, market expertise and proven record of delivering innovative software and services. He has a clear and knowledgeable view of how Sage should develop and great ambition for the Group”.
