Outsourcery has announced the appointment of Emma de Sousa as Managing Director, with a primary focus on driving Outsourcery’s sales and marketing activity.

Ms de Sousa will be based in Outsourcery’s Manchester headquarters and joins Outsourcery from Insight where she was Managing Director, UK & Ireland. Ms de Sousa joined Insight in 2003 and has held a variety of positions within that firm, including Operations Director for EMEA, Managing Director of Germany and Regional Vice President of Southern Europe.

The appointment will take effect on 1st April 2016.

Wolfgang Ebermann, EMEA President, Insight commented “After twelve years at Insight, Emma de Sousa will be stepping down from her role as UK and Ireland Managing Director on 31st March 2016. 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.

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.”

Piers Linney, Co-CEO of Outsourcery, commented “We are delighted to announce Emma’s appointment. I have no doubt that Emma’s extensive experience and strong track record will prove to be of immense value to the business as we look to further develop our go-to-market activities for the public and commercial sectors. There is a great opportunity ahead for our Skype for Business and IaaS solutions and I am confident Emma can drive our sales strategy in areas where Outsourcery has a clear competitive advantage.”

Emma de Sousa added “I am thrilled to be joining this leading Cloud Services organisation. Outsourcery has fantastic capabilities with a proven track-record of helping customers transform their businesses, reduce costs and improve productivity. There is a substantial market opportunity in this area and I look forward to leading the strategic initiatives that will see Outsourcery accelerate growth and increase market share.”
