These two accreditations put Node4 in a strong position to fulfil the company’s ambitious growth plans for this sector.
Paul Bryce, Business Development Director, Node4, comments; “This is an important hire for us, as we work to position Node4 as a true end-to-end IT supplier for mid-tier, charity organisations and the public sector. Paula brings a wealth of valuable experience in the sector, and we expect her to play a key strategic role in helping us achieve our growth plans.”
Paula adds; “Node4 is ideally placed to help the public sector face some key IT infrastructure challenges, including security which is a key priority for police, local government and the NHS alike. Now that Node4 is fully HSCN compliant and a G-Cloud 9 supplier, my priority is to build on our experience in this sector to ensure that Node4 is established as a major contender. We are looking forward to this upcoming challenge, and I am excited to be the one spearheading this new development phase for Node4.”
