Tony Burrows will spearhead Arcus Global’s drive for public sector growth
Arcus Global, a cloud solutions provider for the public sector, has hired Tony Burrows as business development director.
In his role, Burrows will be responsible for commercial activity, identifying new market opportunities, leading on bids, and driving outcomes for customers utilising the Salesforce platform.
Using his extensive knowledge of both public sector policy and digital transformation, Burrows will be fine-tuning Arcus’ proposition and engaging with customers to help the company widen its offering into areas such as central government, healthcare and defence.
Burrows comments: “Arcus has a wealth of experience developing business applications that sit on the Salesforce platform. With the current drive towards digital transformation, Arcus is uniquely placed to help public sector organisations simplify the way they work with citizens.”
Having operated in technology sales for almost thirty years, 19 of which have been in the public sector, Burrows has been responsible for budgets of up to £150 million for organisations ranging from Oracle to HMRC and the DVLA.
Nick Howes, CEO of Arcus Global comments: “Tony’s blend of commercial experience, knowledge of the public sector and cloud technologies is invaluable in supporting our growth strategies and helping us to identify new market opportunities. I welcome Tony’s extensive experience and enthusiasm to the team and I am confident he will make significant contributions to driving forward our vision for the future.”
Burrows adds, “The idea of working for a small, boutique-style business was appealing to me, and it’s good to be back on the frontline doing what I enjoy the most. Another benefit I have seen so far is the people. There are a lot of jobs out there, but having that cultural synergy is the most important thing to me.
I know that Government can make a difference if it makes the right decisions around digital transformation, and I’m looking forward to helping customers drive better services for the citizens they serve.”
