“Technology has never been more important for our clients, and we look forward to helping organisations navigate their ever-changing requirements, balancing the services they depend on today with the opportunities created by transformative technologies that continue to emerge," Sanders said.
Sanders’ appointment comes at a time when clients are thinking differently about the value they expected from their IT partners, according to Heather Graham, CEO of CCL.
