Celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year, having been established in 1996 as an ISP, Claranet has evolved into a full-service managed services provider with a presence in six European countries. Having maintained its financial independence since it was founded, the company has been free to pursue international expansion opportunities and been able to remain agile in the face of changing market opportunities.
Charles Nasser, CEO of Claranet, commented: “Financial strength is core to our value proposition as a managed services provider and is critical if we are to secure the trust of our customers. Our ability to adapt to better suit a constantly changing market has enabled the business to improve profitability, securing its financial strength. By balancing fiscal responsibility with technological innovation we have been able to grow the business sustainably over our 20-year history.
“Claranet is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the shift from on-premises IT to cloud-based environments. The combination of our strong local presence and international reach means that our business has been consistent in its growth both organically and through acquisition in Western Europe,” Nasser concluded.
