- CEO, Connectis-Groupe Getronics
As of today I am part of the Getronics family, an ICT services group operating under the brands of Getronics, Global Workspace Alliance (GWA) and Connectis. End of last year Getronics announced the acquisition of Colt’s cloud business and today I am very pleased to confirm that the acquisition has been successfully completed in 11 countries, including France. The group operates in 22 countries across Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America, delivering ICT services to customers both in the private and public sectors. Through our Global Workspace Alliance (GWA), we deliver these services to over 90 countries, worldwide. We’re a strong and growing business, having acquired and successfully integrated business units from T-Systems, NEC, Steria Iberia, Telvent and Thales over the last 4 years. The acquisition of Colt’s managed cloud business is highly complementary to the group’s existing cloud portfolio.
