She plans to join a cloud solutions provider instead

After twelve years at IT solutions provider Insight, Emma de Sousa will be stepping down from her role as UK and Ireland managing director on 31 March 2016.

De Sousa had previously returned to the company in September 2013 after maternity leave, but will now be joining a cloud solutions provider in a new role instead.

Cloud 1Wolfgang Ebermann, EMEA president of Insight, said: “She is leaving the UK business having overseen impressive performance in the last seven years, including its current six consecutive quarters of growth, and will be taking on a new challenge at a cloud solutions provider.”

He added: “Over the next five months, Emma will be working in partnership with me to select the right successor and implement a succession plan that ensures a smooth and efficient handover for the business, our partners, teammates and our customers.

She has played a fundamental role in the success and strategic direction of Insight in EMEA and I wish her success in her new role.”
