“Earlier in the year, we set out a vision of the Alexander Mann Solutions of the future, building on our track record of successful growth. The impact of Covid-19 has now made that vision even more relevant, and critical, than it was. Our clients are going to be increasingly looking to us to offer innovative solutions to their talent challenges, delivered in agile and creative ways to support them in the new world of work. I know that in their new roles, Jo-Ann and Mike will play critical parts in helping us devise and deliver those innovative, effective solutions for our clients. At Alexander Mann Solutions, our people have always been the foundation for our success; Ruth will be an active champion of our continued desire to attract and retain the best talent for our business, creating career development opportunities for all in a supportive, diverse and inclusive environment.”
