Cloud, DevOps and Commitment Brings Reward.

14th January, 2019

We recently announced the appointment of Rachel McElroy as Sales and Marketing Director to our leadership team. Today there is more big news from us. 

Our Cloud and DevOps focussed business is going from strength to strength. It is the power of people! 

We have experienced an unprecedented increase in business levels. This is within our Assured Resource sectors including our CloudBase and GovAssure, contract and permanent hire.

In addition we are also working on a number of Thought Leadership projects including the official launch of our Cloud Leadership white paper. To be published in May we officially launch this at the end of this month. All of which means it is set to be a very busy year for us. 

Organisational success means we need the right people in the right places.  One of those people is Alex Wilkinson, Client Delivery Director. 

Alex joined the business from the Transport sector bringing an enviable energy, enthusiasm and focus with him. 

He has been responsible for pushing the growth of Assured Resource in Cloud and DevOps through our Cloudbase business model and working with our Cranford Associates.

Cranford’s Associate scheme allows a contractor to work on flexible terms in prestigious roles, with the full support of the company. Furthermore Alex has taken an active role in developing new staff in the company and building strong relationships with key clients.  

Following on from his sterling work we are therefore delighted to announce that Alex has recently been appointed to the Board of Directors.

David Bentley, Managing Director “I am really pleased to announce that Alex has been appointed to the Board of Directors.  Cranford have truly benefitted from his outstanding work since joining us.

He is constantly looking for ways to develop himself and the business.  He sets a high bar for everyone with his drive and determination. Our business is committed to rewarding those who go the extra mile and get results. I believe with people like Alex on board our organisational goals are easily achievable.”

Alex added “I am thrilled to have been recognized for my commitment to Cranford and will continue to strive to give excellent service and positive outcomes to our client base.  As a team we have worked hard on business models that alleviate pressure points for our clients. Really making a difference to them gives me great satisfaction. This is a perfect start to 2019”.
