Adapt has attracted two experienced industry executives away from Colt and Rackspace to join its senior management team. Tom Needs has joined as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) and Scotty Morgan is the new Sales and Marketing Director.

The seniority of these key hires reflects Adapt's growing appeal to executives who bring deep experience and a demonstrable track record of outstanding growth in the managed infrastructure service sector. Both Needs and Morgan will play a vital role in the company's continued rapid growth.

Commenting on the appointments Stewart Smythe, CEO at Adapt, said: "Tom and Scotty understand the growth opportunity at Adapt. They bring the kind of operational skills needed to make a big impact on the business as we scale our offerings upwards and outwards."

Needs joins the team after working at Rackspace for three years, where he led their Enterprise business in EMEA. Prior to that he spent nine years at Attenda. He has a reputation for building valued customer relationships and delivering outstanding service experience to enterprise, mid-market, SaaS and Ecommerce customers. Needs will play a key role in both driving Adapt's customer value strategy forward and proposition development.

Morgan has over 15 years of sales and marketing experience in the IT services sector. He has a proven track record for growing revenues founded on relationship-based sales and market development. He joins Adapt from Colt's infrastructure managed services division where he was part of the sales leadership teamacross Europe. Before that, Morgan delivered rapid revenue growth at Computacenter and BTGS.

Smythe concluded: "Adapt's ongoing success and growth continues to attract our industry's top talent. Tom and Scotty have enjoyed and delivered accelerated development throughout their careers and Adapt will provide them the opportunity to continue that at Board level. At the heart of our success is an outstanding and customised enterprise service - attracting such exciting talent will allow us to build momentum and stay ahead of our market."
