Martin Hellawell

May’s issue of Executive Perspective features Softcat CEO Martin Hellawell. Martin highlights the trends he has seen in his time at Softcat and over the course of his 30 years of experience in the IT industry, including key developments such as the introduction of the PC, the rise of cloud, and, most recently, the ongoing effects of Brexit.

Martin also describes Softcat’s key advantage: its strong culture, which has been key in the company’s growth from ~£50M to ~£700M in revenue over the course of his 11 years of leadership.

Closing with advice to “listen to your own gut rather than conventional wisdom,” Martin offers a fresh perspective blending entrepreneurial thinking and smart leadership.
