The details

Scott Fletcher founded ANS Group from his back bedroom in 1996 at the young age of 22. Today the business pulls in sales of £47m a year and turns a pre-tax profit of £2.2m. ANS Group is a cloud expert with offices in Manchester and London, supplying the public and private sector with computer storage and networking.“The success in our growth comes down to our laser focus on the data centre,” says Paul Sweeney, Fletcher’s right-hand man and the company’s MD.

ANS works with just three technology partners – Cisco, Netapp and VMware – to overhaul its clients’ IT systems and bring organisations into the cloud. “We took a decision to be specialised and stand up for what we believe in, and customers like that.”
