We share a common focus on ensuring clients not only have excellent service, but also access to the optimal technology solutions to enable their clients to succeed. In this we have a shared view of not only the power of the Microsoft portfolio, but also the incredible speed at which it is evolving. Many thanks to Mark and the Charles Russell Speechlys team, whose invaluable and commercially-focussed advice was mission critical to successfully completing the deal.”
