Sir Colin said: “Throughout my career I’ve witnessed the impacts that increasing inter-dependency has on people’s ability to manage operations, deliver projects, mitigate risks and control costs and I would certainly have welcomed having the capabilities BOXARR brings to make effective decisions. I’m excited to be joining BOXARR and helping customers across all sectors effectively manage this significant and growing challenge.”

So it is significant that a person of his formidable experience has not only validated BOXARR being of unique capability and value, but also agreed to join our mission to empower organisations to manage their burgeoning complexity.”
